I WILL BE ANNOUNCING FOUR STEPS TO BUILD SAFETY AND OPPORTUNITY AND DIGNITY FIRST, AGGRESSIVELY PURSUING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND MINORITY COMMUNITIES WE ARE DOING IT VERY POWERFULLY WITH OPPORTUNITY ZONES BUT WE WILL GO ABOUT THAT. AT THE HEART OF THE EFFORT IS INCREASING ACCESS TO CAPITAL FOR SMALL BUSINESSES AND THAT IS WITH MINORITY OWNERS IN BLACK COMMUNITIES AND WE ARE GOING TO GET IT DONE AND IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE A LONG TIME AGO IS VERY DIFFICULT AND HAS BEEN VERY DIFFICULT FOR SOME PEOPLE SECOND, CONFRONTING THE HEALTHCARE DISPARITIES INCLUDING ADDRESSING CHRONIC CONDITIONS AND ADVANCING SUBSTANTIAL SUMS IN MINORITY SERVING MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS WE HAVE MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS IN SOME AREAS OF THE COUNTRY THAT ARE A DISGRACE I WAS GOING TO SAY NOT UP TO STANDARD BUT ARE MUCH WORSE THAN THAT I UNDERSTAND THEY ARE A DISGRACE WE ARE WORKING TO FINALIZE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT WILL ENCOURAGE POLICE DEPARTMENTS NATIONWIDE TO MEET THE MOST CURRENT PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS FOR THE USE OF FORCE INCLUDING TACTICS FOR DE-ESCALATION AND

ALSO WILL ENCOURAGE PILOT PROGRAMS THAT ALLOW SOCIAL WORKERS TO JOIN CERTAIN LAW- ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SO THAT THEY WORK TOGETHER WE WILL TAKE CARE OF OUR POLICE WE ARE NOT DEFENDING POLICE AND IF ANYTHING WE’RE GOING THE OTHER ROUTE WE WILL MAKE SURE THEY ARE PERFECTLY TRAINED SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE HEARD, I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE ARE PROFESSIONALS AND ARE SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE AND WE ARE HEARING THINGS THAT ARE UNTHINKABLE I HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THIS BEFORE LAST WEEK IT STARTED ABOUT ONE WEEK AGO WHERE I HEARD THEY WOULD CLOSE UP ALL POLICE FORCES THAT THE ATTACK ON A VERY LIBERAL GOVERNOR IN THE STATE OF WASHINGTON, WE WANT THE POLICE FORCE CLOSED THEY WANT TO ACTUALLY CLOSE. I’M THINKING WHAT HAPPENS LATE AT NIGHT WHEN YOU MAKE THE CALL TO 911 AND THERE IS NOBODY THERE WOULD YOU DO? WEATHER WHITE, BLACK OR ANY BUDDY ELSE, YOU DIAL AND SOMEONE IS BREAKING INTO A HOUSE AND IT HAPPENS TO BE A VIOLENT PERSON, THERE ARE VIOLENT PEOPLE AROUND AND EVEN YOU WOULD ADMIT THAT WE WANT TO THINK THE BEST BUT THERE ARE VERY VIOLENT PEOPLE AND WHEN THEY ARE BREAKING INTO YOUR HOUSE AT 12:00 IN THE EVENING AND YOU’RE SITTING THERE AND YOU DON’T HAVE A POLICE FORCE, THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT NOT HAVING A POLICE FORCE THAT’S NOT HAPPENING WITH US WE ARE GOING TO HAVE STRONGER POLICE FORCE. IN MINNEAPOLIS, THEY WENT THROUGH THREE NIGHTS OF AND I WAS INSISTENT ON HAVING THE NATIONAL GUARD GO IN AND DO THEIR WORK IT WAS LIKE A MIRACLE EVERYTHING STOPPED I WILL NEVER FORGET THE SCENE IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE A BEAUTIFUL SCENE BUT TO ME IT WAS AFTER YOU WATCH POLICEMAN RUNNING OUT OF A POLICE PRECINCT THEY WANTED TO DO WHAT THEY HAD TO DO BUT WERE NOT ALLOWED TO DO ANYTHING AND IT WASN’T THEIR FAULT THEY WERE NOT ALLOWED TO DO WHAT THEY ARE TRAINED TO DO THEY TOOK OVER THE PRECINCT AND BURNT IT DOWN IT WAS ALMOST WHAT WE CALL A COMPLETE RENOVATION IF YOU’RE LUCKY AND IT WAS A VERY SAD THING AND I DON’T THINK I HAVE EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT BUT WE ARE VERY PROUD OF THE FACT THAT I CALLED AND I SAID I’M SORRY BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE THEM GO IN AND THEY WIN IN IT LOOKS LIKE KNIFE CUTTING BETTER RIGHT THROUGH I NEVER WILL FORGET, YOU SAW THE SCENE ON THAT ROAD IN THE CITY, MINNEAPOLIS AND THEY WERE LINED UP AND THEY JUST WALKED STRAIGHT AND THERE WAS SOME TEARGAS AND PROBABLY SOME OTHER THINGS AND THE CROWD DISPERSED BY THE END OF THAT EVENING, AND IT WAS A SHORT EVENING, EVERYTHING WAS FINE AND YOU DID NOT HEAR TOO MUCH ABOUT THAT LOCATION HAVING PROBLEMS THEY WENT TO OTHER LOCATIONS AND THE SAME THING WOULD HAPPEN AS AN EXAMPLE, SEATTLE WOULD BE SO EASY TO SOLVE. IT WOULD BE SO EASY TO SOLVE WE HAVE A GOVERNOR HERE OF THE GREAT STATE, TEXAS, WHO WOULD SOLVE IT AS WOULD OTHER OF YOUR POLITICAL LEADERS THEY WOULD SOLVE IT VERY EASILY A LOT OF IT IS COMMON SENSE I THINK IT IS MORE COURAGEOUS THE OTHER WAY BECAUSE I WOULD NOT BE WANTED DO IT THE OTHER WAY VERY UNSAFE I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT WE’RE WORKING ON A LOT OF DEVELOPMENTS HAVING TO DO WITH LAW, ORDER, SAFETY, COMFORT CONTROL BUT WE WANT SAFETY AND COMPASSION WE WANT EVERYTHING WHAT HAPPENED TWO WEEKS AGO WAS A DISGRACE WHAT HAPPENED ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKS, PEOPLE WERE KILLED. A NUMBER OF PEOPLE WERE KILLED AND IT WAS VERY TERRIBLE AND VERY UNFAIR A NUMBER OF THEM WERE POLICE OFFICERS AND IT WAS A VERY UNFAIR SITUATION WE DON’T WANT TO SEE THAT AND WITH STRENGTH, THEY WOULD NOT BE IN A POSITION TO DO THE DAMAGE THAT THEY HAVE DONE THAT HAVE DESTROYED PEOPLE, BUSINESSES, THEY HAVE DESTROYED AFRICAN-AMERICAN HOMES AND SMALL BUSINESSES HOPEFULLY THEY WILL COME BACK WE ARE PROVIDING FUNDING FOR A LOT OF SMALL BUSINESSES AND HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET EVERYONE IN LINE AND PEOPLE WILL BE ABLE TO OPEN UP THE STORIES AND SMALL BUSINESSES WE ARE WORKING TO FINALIZE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT WILL ENCOURAGE POLICE DEPARTMENTS

NATIONWIDE TO MEET THE MOST CURRENT PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS OF FORCE AND A THAT MEANS FORCE THE FORCE WITH COMPASSION BUT IF YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE TO REALLY DO A JOB, SOMEONE IS REALLY BAD, YOU WILL HAVE TO DO IT WITH REAL STRENGTH AND POWER AND I SAID AND PEOPLE SAID I DON’T KNOW IF WE LIKE THAT EXPRESSION AND I SAID WE HAVE TO DOMINATE THE STREETS YOU CANNOT LET WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW YORK CITY, YOU HAVE TO DOMINATE AND I WAS CRITICIZED FOR THAT STATEMENT I MADE THE STATEMENT WE HAVE TO DOMINATE THE STREET GUESS WHAT, YOU KNOW WHO DOMINATED THE STREETS? PEOPLE YOU DON’T WANT TO DOMINATE THE STREETS AND LOOK AT THE DAMAGE THEY DID I WILL STICK WITH THAT AND I THINK EVERY PERSON IN THIS ROOM WILL STICK WITH THAT AND WE ARE DOING IT WITH COMPASSION WE ARE DOMINATING THE STREET WITH COMPASSION BECAUSE WE ARE SAVING LIVES AND BUSINESSES AND WE ARE SAVING FAMILIES FROM BEING WIPED OUT AFTER WORKING HARD FOR 20 AND 30 YEARS ONE WOMAN WORKED HARD FOR YEARS BUILDING HER STORE AND IN ONE NIGHT IT WAS TOTALLY WIPED OUT , HAVE CONGRESS ENACT SCHOOL CHOICE NOW >> [ APPLAUSE ] >> BECAUSE ACCESS TO EDUCATION IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE OF OUR TIME I’VE HEARD THAT FOR THE LAST, I WOULD SAY, YEAR, BUT IT REALLY IS IT IS THE CIVIL-RIGHTS ISSUE OF OUR TIME WE’VE DONE A LOT OF IT WE’VE HAD TREMENDOUS SUCCESS WITH CHOICE WE HAD CHOICE IN A LOT OF WAYS WE ALSO HAD CHOICE IN THE MILITARY YOU KNOW, BEFORE I ICAME HERE, THE VETS WOULD WAIT IN LINE THEY WOULD BE WAITING — IT WOULDN’T BE ACCESSIBLE TO YOU I KNOW IT WOULDN’T BE ACCEPTABLE IT WOULDN’T BE ACCEPTABLE TO YOU THEY WOULD WAIT FOUR, FIVE WEEKS THEY WERE SICK THEY WERE FEELING BAD L.

I JUST WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE THIS IS A VERY SPECTACULAR PLACE AND I WANT TO INTRODUCE ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR AND SECRETARY COSTCA TO SAY A FEW WORDS, ALONG WITH THE SURGEON GENERAL, WHO’S BEEN A REAL YOUNG STAR IN THE ADMINISTRATION AND, PLEASE, IF I COULD, BILL, TAKE OVER, PLEASE THANK YOU THANK YOU VERY MUCH >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT >> THANK YOU >> THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, AND THANK YOU FOR CONVENING THIS DISCUSSION AND I’D LIKE TO THANK THE MANY LEADERS, RELIGIOUS LEADERS, AND COLLEAGUES FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT ARE HERE THAT GHASTLY SPECTACLE IN MINNEAPOLIS WAS REALLY JARRING THE WHOLE NATION, AND IT FORCED US TO CONFRONT AND THINK ABOUT, REFLECT ON LONG-STANDING ISSUES IN OUR NATION THOSE ISSUES OBVIOUSLY RELATE TO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY BUT JUST TO STEP BACK A LITTLE, TAKE A BROADER VIEW INITIALLY, I’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT HOW DO WE ACHIEVE THE AMERICAN DREAM FOR OUR COMMUNITIES, AFRICAN AMERICANS, OR OUR COMMUNITIES ONE OF THE REASONS I’M PROUD TO SERVE IN THIS ADMINISTRATION IS BECAUSE I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS MOVING FORWARD ON THE CRITICAL ELEMENTS NECESSARY TO PROVIDE AND ENSURE THAT OPPORTUNITY WITHOUT GROWTH, THERE IS NO OPPORTUNITY SECOND — >> APPLAUSE ] >> SECOND, EDUCATION I THINK CONDY RICE SAID, A FEW YEARS AGO, IT’S THE CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUE OF OUR TIME, BECAUSE WITHOUT A GOOD EDUCATION, WE’RE NOT ALLOWING OUR YOUNG PEOPLE TO SEIZE THEIR OPPORTUNITIES AND PURSUE THEIR DREAMS AND AS THE PRESIDENT MENTIONED, IT’S ONLY BY EMPOWERING PARENTS AND GIVING THEM THE POWER TO CHOOSE THE EDUCATION FOR THEIR CHILDREN THAT WE’RE EVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO OBTAIN THAT THIRD, I THINK, IS MORAL DISCIPLINE AND OUR YOUNG PEOPLE, THEY HAVE TO HAVE THE DISCIPLINE TO SEE THE OPPORTUNITY, MAKE MOMENTARY SACRIFICES FOR LATER GAIN AND TRADITIONALLY, THAT HAS COME — PEOPLE CAN FIND IT PERHAPS IN MANY SOURCES, BUT TROLLEY, THAT HAS COME FROM RELIGION, WHICH OUR FOUNDERS BELIEVED WAS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR REPUBLIC THEY SAID, “WE’RE IN OUR GOLDEN

YEARS, AND WE ARE LIVING BEHIND BARS.” LOOK DOWN THE STREET “ALL THE BARS ARE ON OUR WINDOWS, AND THE CRIMINALS RUN FREE ON THE STREET.” NOW, WE’VE MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS SINCE THEN THE CRIME RATE HAS BEEN CUT IN HALF AND A BIG PART OF THAT HAS BEEN IMPROVEMENT IN POLICING I THINK LAW ENFORCEMENT HAS UNDERSTOOD FOR LONG TIME THAT THERE IS DISTRUST IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY TOWARD THE LAW ENFORCEMENT SYSTEM, AND WHEN YOU REFLECT ON OUR HISTORY, YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHY FOR MOST OF OUR HISTORY, UP UNTIL THE LAST 60 YEARS, THE INSTITUTIONS IN THIS COUNTRY, THE LAWS, AND THE INSTITUTIONS WERE EXCLUSIVELY DISCRIMINATORY THERE WAS NOT EQUAL APPLICATION OF THE LAW IT’S ONLY BEEN SINCJIM CROW THAT OUR LAWS HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO PROVIDE FOR EQUAL JUSTICE AND WHAT WE’VE HAD SINCE — AND SO THE CIVIL RIGHTS EFFORT UP UNTIL THAT TIME WAS TAGGER DOWN OUR INSTITUTIONS BUT I DON’T THINK NOW IS THE TIME TO TAR DOWN OUR INSTITUTIONS WE HAVE BEEN ON THE MARCH TO REFORM OUR INSTITUTIONS YOU DON’T NEED TO TEAR THEM DOWN YOU HAVE TO BE MATURE ABOUT THIS WHEN YOU SEE PROBLEMS, WE HAVE TO REDOUBLE OUR EFFORTS AND REFORM OUR EVENS CONSTITUTIONS, AND MAKE SURE THEY’RE IN SYNC WITH OUR VALUES I DON’T THINK ANYONE WHO’S HONEST WOULD DENY THAT WE’VE MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS IN POLICING OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS ONE OF THE THINGS ABOUT THIS EPISODE IN MINNEAPOLIS WAS HOW FAST BOTH THE STATE AND FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT RESPONDED TO DEALING WITH THAT ACTION SO I THINK THAT WHILE WE SAW SOMETHING VERY BAD, IT HAS HELPED PERHAPS GALVANIZE THE WILL OF THE COUNTRY TO BRING GOOD OUT OF THAT WE CAN’T LET THAT INCIDENT ON SECURE THE FACT THAT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE, THAT POLICE BY AND LARGE, THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY IS GOOD AND DECENT PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY, AND PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR US, THEIR NEIGHBORS AND WE CAN’T LOSE SIGHT OF THE FACT — WE CAN’T LET THIS EVENT ON SECURE THE FACT THAT THE REAL OPPRESSION AND DANGER TO OUR COMMUNITIES COMES MORE FROM VIOLENT CRIME AND LAWLESSNESS THAN IT DOES FROM THE POLICE NOW, WE’VE NEVER HAD — WE’VE NEVER HAD A PRESIDENT WHO’S MORE COMMITTED TO REFORMING LAW ENFORCEMENT HE’S DONE THAT, THE FIRST POLICE COMMISSION SINCE LYNDON JOHNSON, AND I’M VERY OPTIMISTIC ABOUT WHAT WE’RE ABLE TO DO, GIVEN HIS LEADERSHIP, BUT ALSO GIVEN THE LEADERSHIP OF OUR POLICE FORCES, WHICH AROUND THE COUNTRY, INCREASINGLY HAVE BECOME BETTER AND BETTER LED THE POLICE PROFESSION IS, IN ITSELF, COMMITTED TO ADDRESSING THE ISSUES WE SAW IN MINNEAPOLIS, AND COMPLETING THE PROCESS OF PROFESSIONALIZING POLICING IN THIS COUNTRY AS THE PRESIDENT SAID, WE’RE WORKING ON A NUMBER OF THINGS, THROUGH THE COMMISSION HE SET UP, AND ALSO THROUGH AN EXECUTIVE ORDER TO PROPEL THAT PROCESS EVEN FASTER, BY LOOKING AT HOW WE CAN ENCOURAGE THE ADOPTION OF GUIDELINES ABOUT THE USE OF FORCE THAT ARE ACCEPTABLE, BOTH TO THE COMMUNITY AND TO THE POLICE PROFESSION, BUT ALSO TO ENCOURAGE STATION OF POLICE FORCES, AND ALSO THROUGH SUCH ACTIVITIES AS INCREASING GRANTS TO ENCOURAGE THE USE OF CORESPONDERS MORE AND MORE POLICE ARE BEING ASKED TO DEAL WITH PROBLEMS THAT ANYTIME HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN THE PROBLEM OF LAW ENFORCEMENT

THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH HOMELESS PEOPLE THEY HAVE TO DEAL WITH A LOT OF MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES THEY HAVE TO TEAL WITH THE DRUG ADDICTION, THE DRUG ADDICTS AND SO FORTH, AND PROVIDING SOME ADDITIONAL SUPPORT TO THE POLICE IN THESE AREAS IS GOING TO BE IMPORTANT SO LET ME JUST SAY THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE IS COMMITTED TO SUPPORT THE PRESIDENT’S EFFORTS HERE, DO ALL WE CAN TO BRING GOOD OUT OF THIS BAD INCIDENT THANK YOU >> THANK YOU THANK YOU >> SURGEON GENERAL, PLEASE GO AHEAD GO AHEAD WHY DON’T YOU — >> ALL RIGHT THANK YOU, MR.
