Trump says chokeholds by police sound ‘so innocent and so perfect’ but that ‘generally speaking’ the practice should be ended

President Donald Trump on Friday somewhat defended the practice of chokeholds by police, but also said that “generally speaking it should be ended.” “I think the concept of chokeholds sounds so innocent and so perfect,” Trump said during a Fox News interview. But Trump appeared to suggest that chokeholds might be permissible in certain situations, such as if police are outnumbered.  As Congress deliberates over policing reform amid nationwide protests over George Floyd’s brutal death, Democrats earlier this week unveiled legislation that included a ban on chokeholds.  Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.
