Trump says U.S. police will not be disbanded

U.S. President Trump hosts roundtable with law enforcement at the White House in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump said on Monday there will not be any disbanding of police following calls for law enforcement to be defunded in the aftermath of the death of a black man in police custody in Minneapolis that has sparked nationwide protests.

Trump, speaking in a roundtable discussion with law enforcement officials at the White House, said 99 percent of police are great people although there are some bad apples.
