Democrats say Republican lawmakers in both Minnesota and Washington D-C are refusing to move forward with comprehensive police reforms after the death of George Floyd. Fifth District Congresswoman Ilhan Omar says the U-S Senate is sitting on a bill, and blames Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Trump:

“I guess the president would rather attack the people who are protesting than actually address the issues people are out here protesting for.”

A spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee responds while Omar “pandered to her socialist followers by calling for the abolishment of the police”, President Trump and Senate Republicans have a record of passing meaningful criminal justice reform – which now includes their calls to pass the JUSTICE Act.
