CBS News’ Catherine Herridge spoke to the president Tuesday about the civil unrest and calls for police reform across the country, largely as a response to the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.
Herridge asked the president, “Why are African-Americans still dying at the hands of law enforcement in this country?”
“So are white people,” the president immediately responded. “So are white people. What a terrible question to ask. So are white people. More white people, by the way. More white people.”
