The executive order would also call for social workers to join officers in responding to police calls and promote information sharing among police departments about officers who have been the subject of too many complaints about excessive use of force, the official said.

Ja'Ron Smith, a deputy assistant to the President, confirmed Monday morning that the executive order will look to incentivize police departments to include mental health professionals as co-responders.

In 2017 the USSF made a decision to bring in the policy which forced players from both the USWNT and USMNT to stand for the anthem after Megan Rapinoe took a knee to join Colin Kaepernick's protest against police brutality and inequality in the Black community in the United States of America.

More sweeping overhauls to the nation's policing are under consideration in Congress. The Republican-led Senate is expected to introduce its own version of the measure this week. A tall iron fence erected around the White House became a symbol of the president's disconnect with the changes that swept across the nation.

Trump, down in national polls to Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden, faces pressure to take action on police reform following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody after a white police officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes, persisting even after Floyd had passed out.

Floyd's was the latest case to spark outrage at the use of force by police, especially against African Americans.

Trump also said the shooting by police of a black man in Atlanta was very disturbing.

Protesters, organized by civil rights groups, including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), gathered outside the Georgia Capitol where lawmakers were returning to work after a coronavirus shutdown.

Speaking to the New York Daily News in 2000, she said her "aunt and uncles should be ashamed of themselves" for their handling of the will and treatment of their family members, including her father, alleging Donald, Maryanne and Robert Trump also cut off funds needed to treat their nephew's cerebral palsy. "It was just something he was never going to want". The House has previously passed a hate crimes bill, but it has stalled in the Senate. "We must all say no to racism and no to violence".

While Trump has been hesitant to wade into the issue of police reform, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and Smith have been leading an effort inside the White House to seek out police reform proposals from criminal justice reform advocates and law enforcement groups in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.
