On the one side, you have the belief that America is inherently a good place and on the other, you have a belief that America is inherently bad place. No Trump may not understand. The deep roots of American philosophy, history or culture that I talk about my book how to destroy America in three easy steps, but he does have a gut level feeling that America is inherently a pretty good place. And the Democrats have about level feeling that America is, in essence, a pretty horrible place when they pay lip service to the declaration of Independence is not because they believe the declaration of Independence embodies true American values. It's because they believe that the declaration of Independence is as Nicole Hannah Jones has described it a live one written They believe that the founders were racist.

And we saw peaceful protesters attacked by the federal government, and that should never happen so I decided when we saw those federal police out on the streets that we had to push back, and we had to make this area area for peaceful protests, and for an affirming message at this time right now, that says we have to have more justice and more peace. and fairness in policing. What happened in your city in recent weeks which you just described I'll say it again. Trump militarizing the streets federal offices violently clearing peaceful protesters from Lafayette Square. Quite appalling frankly it became a flashpoint in this movement. However, and you say that you had no morning that that clash was going to happen. How hard has it been to run a city on trump's home turf? Well our home turf I was born and raised here where more than the federal government more than the White House and the cat, but all were seven hundred thousand Americans live here. Pay Taxes here who raise children here. and. We want every right that every American has, and that's why we're fighting for statehood, and it's only through state statehood by DC becoming the fifty first state. Can we prevent Donald trump or any president from encroaching on the autonomy of? Citizens in Washington DC. Hopefully he'll be gone very soon, so the the house is voting on a bill next week to make DC the fifty first state. That's correct what we already know it's going to be. We already know though it's going to be. A Republican held Senate so then what? What's the next move after that? Well we don't let the Senate or the Republicans and either house off the hook. We know they've made plain that. This is a partisan issue is only about on them trying to stop to Democrats from getting in the Senate, but we know that's not what our democracy is based on we support and believe in the values that if you pay taxes, you have to be represented and one silver lining out of this clash that more Americans know. That Americans in the nation's capital, the only capital in the free world where it citizens are congresswoman. Get to vote. We do not have two senators that speak for us, so we are literally. Without a voice in the Senate and without a vote in the house, and that violates the principles of American citizenship, and it has to be fixed, so you're right -joy that is far as we've gone, and this is far as we go the first time we'll have an affirmative vote in the house next Friday so I wanNA thank. All of those brave members for standing up and doing the right thing but we know a Democrat in the democratically controlled Senate Democrat in the white. House and a Democratic president who move on this in his first one hundred days will achieve statehood for Washington DC. Mayor Bowser I was moved by the images of civil rights icon John Lewis standing in front of the bold yellow black lives matter lettering. He is currently fighting cancer, and at the age of it was pretty beautiful, but you are being sued by counter protesters who claim that the mural and the street renaming shows bias to one race, and meanwhile some black lives matter activists have called the mural. Performance and painted the words defunding police side it. What do you make of the criticism? Well Art Megan and we have in DC for a number of years funded arts project called Murals DC where we use our to send powerful messages all across the District of Columbia, in this is one such massive beautiful, affirming piece of Art, and I will defend our right to do that in any court in our land.

She's a democratic congresswoman from Orlando Florida. demings began her career as a social worker became a cop, and then rose to become chief of the Orlando Police Department, the first woman to do so. She's also on the shortlist of Women Joe, Biden. Is a reportedly considering as his running in a column in Friday's Washington Post. demings wrote as a former woman in blue. Let me begin with my brothers and sisters in blue. What in the hell are you doing? And Bow demings joins me now from Orlando Congressman, demings welcome to meet the press. And, let me start with simply this. We've been through this cycle before. In America a lot this last decade incident like the one with toward floyd happens. There's outrage. The country has some sort of collective conversation about race and inequality. And then what happens not much changes? Why do you think that is the case and is there? What do you think is the possibility of making this time different? Trick I really do believe that we can you know when I think about the extraordinary work that Dr King did for example in the civil rights movement, and those who were with them. Look at where we are, it is a ever changing ever. You know commitment that we always have to make to deal with the TIM systemic racism in our country I. Think before as we've. Dealt with misconduct involving police officers that we've always. Tried to deal with it as an individual department or an individual city or an individual state. But I do believe the time has certainly come. We are overdue for us to look at the problem as a nation, I think we all need to pause in every law enforcement agency in this nation whether they are ten percents or thirty five thousand persons need to review their hiring standards their training standards. Look at their de escalation training that they're doing within the department. Look at those officers who train other officers because we know our training officers are the ones who set the standard for what's acceptable and unacceptable on the street, and we have to continue to work with our community leaders to build relationships to foster trust and we don't wait to do that. You know to when we in the middle of a crisis. We have to continue to do that every day and I do believe we are long overdue for every law enforcement agency in our nation to review itself and come out better than before. Let me ask this though it does seem look. At Minneapolis, a lot of people have praised the police chief in Minneapolis. He's put in. He was brought in after they had. They had some issues in the past. He was brought in to institute these reforms. Which you've dealt with this as a chief it's very hard. If you've got a police officer that you think isn't isn't on. The Up isn't good. In Situ in certain situations? It's very hard for you to get rid of one of those police officers. Is it not? Let me say this chuck. Twenty seven years at the Orlando Police Department had the honor of serving as the chief of police I've worked with some of the brightest the best and most courageous men and women that America has to offer. Certainly, they were not all that way, but the overwhelming majority were and so I, come in. The chief in Minnesota because he did one thing that I certainly. Think helped to bring charges against one officer. We're waiting to see others. But that was to immediately fire that officer, which allowed the chief to do some things that otherwise they would not have been able to do, and so while I know that it seemed like the days that passed before the officer was arrested. If you look historically, that was pretty swift. arrests that was made and so I do believe working collectively every shariff, every police chief throughout the nation, working together and facing racism in other issues. Head on to make sure. What are they dealing with? Is a bad mine. A person who should have never been a law enforcement officer in the beginning. Is it a bad? Bad Heart because you certainly have to have the heart for this job, or is it bad policy and while I know the federal government does not have direct jurisdiction I certainly believe that we do have a major role to play in terms of helping law enforcement agencies throughout the nation. Maybe come up with some standards for hiring and training especially use of force training. I want to go a little bigger picture here in in some ways. Of the last three months have been particularly hard on communities of, but particularly the African American community you look at the impact of of of the corona virus on health outcomes impact of the virus on the on the economic picture now throw in three more, just brutal examples of of of racial injustice on the law enforcement front. I'm referring to Georgia Kentucky in Minnesota in particular. what does that mean if for for governing going forward? Congressman Anthony Brown said to me that one of the things that has to change. You can't have race neutral policy right now..

"With these protests have been by and large, peaceful and nonviolent. Instead what we have been seeing is a number of vigils popping up to honor the life of George Floyd his classmates from decades, high school gathered and released. Released balloons and retold stories of what it was like growing up with him in the third ward, and playing basketball and football with him, and while there certainly is a lot of anger here and a desire to see justice. There's also an interest in remembering who George. Floyd was as a person and celebrating that, and this comes as the governor has signaled that George Floyd's body will return Houston for funeral services chop. Still Thomson? In, Houston there where again they are mourning the death of their hometown. In their hometown resident George Floyd. Thank you and thank you to all joining me now from Minneapolis Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. mistrial, welcome back to meet the press and I'm going to start with the issue of of this outside instigators I. Guess we're trying to understand. Who are the people responsible for this violence? yourself? The Governor Minnesota has indicated that there is some domestic terrorists out there perhaps some white supremacist bill bar the attorney general. Characterize the outside instigators this way. Let me play that. Bite for you and get you to respond. Take a listen. Many places, it appears the violence is planned. Organized and driven. By an archaic and left. Extremist groups, far-left extremist groups, using anti fa like tactics, many of whom travel from outside the state to promote the violence. Now, it's understanding Mr Attorney General that. According to the Justice, Department they got that intelligence from state and local authorities. What if what do you know about WHO's behind this? Here's what I know. There's been a lot of videotape taken by demonstrators of people who are very suspicious. Who are who really did start a breaking windows particularly at the autozone and there've been other. Photographs and cars with. No license plates very suspicious behavior, but the real point is we do need to investigate the truth is nobody really knows I've talked to people who are demonstrating some of them say they think some of those folks are from Minnesota, and they also say some people have come from out of town. What the exact political motivation is is unclear at this point, we need to investigate it, but what I would say, though particularly as it relates to bill and the president. Is that they have not brought a single pattern and practice lawsuit against a major municipality where there's systemic police abuses in in America. They have actually tried to walk back their involvement in key states where they existed under the Obama. Administration, they have not moved forward when it comes to twenty first century policing which the Obama Administration Administration started so I think the federal government does have a role, but it needs to be constructing a better relationship between cities and the police departments that serve them and make an incendiary comments about. WHO's to blame here? As opposed to actually investigating, it isn't helpful. We need their help to be more constructive and less assigning. Blame them on matters that actually we don't know the truth of yet. Do you? Do you WANNA see federal charges brought against these four police officers. And you think that that will happen under this attorney general. Yes I do. And I don't know I hope so I can tell you that are local us. Attorney is a very constructive partner Erica McDonald. Is a Minnesotan She's a serious a prosecutor in law enforcement, person and I. Do Trust her the folk. She worked our hope. Just leave her alone a letter to a job. May Ask you. What's your understanding of of weather? Three other police officers we heard the county attorney and Hennepin County said that he expected charges to be brought. Where are we on that? And what do you expect those charges to to be if they are brought? I, know that we're early in the process. Chuck I mean at this point. There is the to charges of of thirty murder and second degree manslaughter. Complaint could well be. Amended to include. Additional charges or even higher charges, and the other individuals are not out of the woods. The investigation is ongoing. In answer to your question of what charges I, don't know I'd be speculating. It's not my case. This is not my case. But. You know certainly aiding and abetting is a possibility. And there are others as well. So, I think that that is a that is something that is the the county attorney. Mike Freeman is is looking into now. And, we expect to hear something in the fairly recent near future. Big. Picture Mr Attorney General of Americans. There's you know Minnesota. Has the Minnesota Nice Image Minnesota as an image of you know the? And you're. You're an African American man that got elected statewide Minnesota as attorney general as the state's chief law officer. For some people look at this and their surprise. Tell us the story of Minneapolis and Minnesota why this shouldn't surprise people in your mind. Well Minnesota is is kind of a tale of two cities. It really is a beautiful wonderful place. I love it here. Raise off for my kids here. There's so many great things about it so many great people. And yet we have very stark disparities when it comes to African Americans, health disparities in health care health, the spirits in housing health disparities when it comes to employment. And disparities! All around I mean. Give you a quick example about seventy percent of MINNESOTANS own their own homes, but only about twenty seven percent of African Americans do. African Americans are an a fragile economic position in this state, and we need massive investment, and what I say to people look if we can have some of the highest sat scores in the country. If we can have the highest voting participation in the country highest voted to homeownership in the country for whites. We can do it for everyone. We just have to have the will to do it for everybody and I. Think that this sad tragic situation my give us the energy to really really make those Kinda commitments because they are absolutely needed.
