Trump says ’more white people’ than blacks are killed by US police

President Trump brushed aside a question during a White House press conference Tuesday on why black Americans are still dying at the hands of police, by saying ’so are white people’. A visibly irritated Trump added to it by saying that ’more white people by the way’ are killed by the police than the blacks, and termed the question asked by CBS News’ Catherine Herridge a ’terrible one’.

He is correct. 3 black people are killed by police per 10,000 arrests where as it is 4 white people per 10,000 arrests. There is a 2016 study by a Havard professor that attests to this fact. Interesting how the NPR article uses data from 2015. I wonder why that is...framing much?
