Presidential Debate Highlights | Race Relations, Police-Involved Shootings

Jun 05, 2021
We move on to our next segment talking about the direction of America and let's start by talking about

race

. The share of Americans who say

race

relations

are bad in this country is the highest in decades, much of it amplified by

police

shootings

of African Americans. As we've seen recently in Charlotte and Tulsa, race has been a big issue in this campaign and one of you will have to bridge a very wide and bitter gap, so how can the division be healed? Secretary Clinton, you have two minutes for this. You are right, race is still a major challenge in our country, unfortunately, race still too often determines where people live, determines what type of education they can receive in their public schools and yes, determines how they are treated in the criminal justice system.

I just saw those two tragic examples in both Tulsa and Charlotte and we have to multitask, we have to restore trust between communities and

police

, we have to work to make sure our police are using the best. training the best techniques being well prepared to use force only when necessary everyone must be respected by the law and everyone must respect the law right now that is not the case in many of our neighborhoods so I have done it since the first day of my campaign he called for criminal justice reform. I've put forward a platform that I think would begin to remedy some of the problems that we have in the criminal justice system, but we also have to recognize, in addition to the challenges that we face with policing there.

There are so many good, brave police officers who still want reform, so we have to bring communities together to start working on that as a mutual goal and we have to get guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. The epidemic is the leading cause of death for young African American men, more than the next nine causes combined, so we have to do two things, like I said, we have to restore trust, we have to work with the police, we have to make sure that respect communities and communities respect them and we have to address the plague of gun violence, which contributes greatly to many of the problems we are seeing today, sir.

Trump, you have two minutes, how can you heal the division well? First of all, Secretary Clinton doesn't want to use a couple of words and that's law and order, and we need law and order, if we don't have it, we won't do it. I have a country and when I look at what's happening in Charlotte, a city, I love a city where I have investments, when I see what's happening in various parts of our country, I mean, I can go on naming them all day. I need law and order in our country and I just received today, as you know, the support of the Fraternal Order of Police that we just arrived, we have the support of I think almost all police groups, I mean a large percentage of them in the United States.

In the United States we have a situation in which we have our inner cities, African Americans, Hispanics, they live in hell because it is very dangerous, you walk down the street, they shoot you in Chicago, they have had thousands of

shootings

, thousands since the first of January, thousands of shootings and me. I'm saying: where is this a war-torn country? What are we doing and do we have to stop the violence? We have to restore law and order in a place like Chicago where thousands of people have been murdered in recent years. In fact, almost 4,000 people have been murdered since Barack Obama became president, almost 4,000 people have been murdered in Chicago.
We have to restore law and order now, whether it's a place like Chicago stop and frisk, which worked very well, Mayor Giuliani. Here it worked very well in New York, it reduced the crime rate a lot, but the weapons are taken away from criminals who should not have them. We have gangs roaming the streets and in many cases they are illegal immigrants here. weapons and they should be people and we have to be very strong and we have to be very attentive we have to be we have to know what we are doing right now our police in many cases are afraid to do anything we have to protect our inner cities because African American communities are being decimated by crime, two minute experiment.
I want to follow up. Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York because it heavily targeted young black and Hispanic men. Now you are wrong. He went before a judge. who was a judge who was very against the police, they took it away from her and our mayor, our new mayor, refused to go forward with the case, they would have wanted a bill if you look at it all over the country, there are many places where We argue that it is a form of racial profiling, no, the argument is that we have to take away the guns of these people who have them and there are bad people who should not have them, these are criminals, these are people who are bad people who should not be when you have them. 3,000 shootings in Chicago since January 1 when there are 4,000 people killed in Chicago by guns since the beginning of Barack Obama's presidency, his hometown, you have to stop and frisk, you need more police, you need a better community, you know the

relations

hip, no Not having good community relations in Chicago is terrible, I have property there, what's happening in Chicago is terrible, but when you look and Chicago is not the only one, you go to Ferguson, you go to so many different places you need better relationships .
I agree with Secretary Clinton on This needs better relations between communities and the police because in some cases it's not good, but if you look at Dallas, where relationships were really studied, relationships were a really beautiful thing and then five police officers police were killed one night in a very violent way, so there is some Bad things happen, some really bad things very quickly, but we need a lesson, we need law and order and we need law and order in urban centers because the people most affected by What is happening is African Americans and Hispanics and it is very unfair. to them what our politicians are allowing to happen, well I heard Donald say this at his rallies and it's really unfortunate that he has presented such a negative image of the black communities in our country, you know the vitality of the black communities. the church, the black businesses that employ so many people, the opportunities that so many families are working to provide for their children, there are many things that we should be proud of and we should support and uplift, but we always have to make sure we keep people .
Sure, there are right ways to do it and then there are ways that are ineffective. Stop and frisk was deemed unconstitutional, and partly because it was ineffective, it didn't do what it needed to do now. I believe in community policing and in fact, violent crime is half of what it was in 1991, property crime is down 40%, we just don't want it to go up again. We have had 25 years of very good cooperation, but there were some problems, some unintended consequences. Many young African Americans and Latinos have ended up in prison for non-violent crimes and it is a fact that if you are a young African American and you do the same thing as a young white man, you are more likely to be arrested and charged. convicted and incarcerated, so we have to address systemic racism in our criminal justice system, we can't just say law and order, we have to say we have to come up with a plan that diverts people from the agreement of the criminal justice system.
With mandatory minimum sentences that have imprisoned too many people for too long for doing too little, we need to have more second chance programs. I'm glad we're ending private prisons in the federal system. I want them to end in the In the state system there should be no profit motivation to fill prison cells with young Americans, so there are some positive ways we can work on this and I firmly believe that common sense measures for gun safety would help us right now and this is something Donald has done. supported along with the gun lobby right now we have too many military style guns on the streets in many places our police are outgunned we need thorough background checks and we need to keep guns out of the hands of those who will harm you and ultimately We need to pass a ban on anyone on the terrorist watch list being able to purchase a gun in our country.
If you're too dangerous to fly, you're too dangerous to buy a gun, so there are things we can do and we should do it in a bipartisan way the cousin secretary last week you said we need to do everything we can to improve policing to address Implicit Bias Do you think the police have an implicit bias against black listeners? I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police. I think, unfortunately, a lot of us in our great country jump to conclusions about others, and so I think we need all of us to ask the hard questions about, do you know why I feel this way? to police activity, as it can have literally fatal consequences.
In my first budget I said we would put money in that budget to help us deal with implicit bias by retraining many of our police officers. I met with a group of very distinguished experienced police officers. The bosses a few weeks ago admitted that it is a problem. They have many worries. Mental health is one of the biggest concerns because now Polly sir has to deal with a lot of really difficult mental health issues on the street. They want support. They want more. training they want more help and I think the federal government could be in a position where we could offer and provide that Sir.
I would like to answer first. I agree and many people, even within my own party, want to grant certain rights. to people on watch lists and no fly lists I agree with you when a person is on a watch list or no fly list and I have the support of the NRA which I am very proud of. They are very, very good people and they are protecting the Second Amendment, but I think we have to look very carefully at the no-fly lists and the watch lists, and when there are people there, even if they shouldn't be there, we will help them we will help them legally we will help them get but I tend to be pretty okay with that.
I want to mention the fact that you were the one who mentioned the word super predator about young black men and that is a term that I think was horrific and has been received horribly. You know, I think you've apologized for that, but I think it was a terrible thing to say and when it comes to stop and frisk, you know you're talking about taking away guns, well, I'm talking about taking away guns from gangs and people who they use and I don't think, I really don't think you'll disagree with me on this if you want to know the truth.
I think maybe there's a political reason why you can't say it, but I really don't think so. In New York City, stop and frisk we had 2,200 murders and stop and frisk the number dropped to five hundred murders five hundred murders a lot of murders it's hard to believe that five hundred is supposed to be good, but we went from two thousand two hundred to five hundred and was continued by Mayor Bloomberg and was canceled by the current mayor, but stop and frisk had a tremendous impact on the safety of New York City, tremendous beyond belief, so when you say it has no impact, really it had it, it had a very, very big impact well, it's also fair to say that if we're going to talk about mayors, under the current mayor crime has continued to decrease, including murders, so there's yours, no, I'm the height, very good, Eugene York, New York has done an excellent job and I give credit, I give credit across the board from the mayor to the police chiefs because it has worked and other communities need to come together to do what will also work.
Look, one murder is one too many, but it's important that we learn about what happened. been effective and not resort to things that sound good and that really did not have the kind of impact that those of us who do not agree with keeping the neighborhood safe would like, but let's also add that no one should disagree with respect for the rights of the young men who live in those neighborhoods and so we need to do a better job working again with the community's religious community business communities as well as the police to try to address this issue.
This conversation is about race and something about mr. Trump, I have to ask. I would like you to respond, please. 20 just like your answer. Answer that I already have it. I will look at how our politicians have let down the African American community. They speak well at election time. at this moment and after the elections they said see you later, see you in four years, the African American community, look, the community within the citiesof the interior has been so badly treated that they have been abused and used to obtain votes. Democrat politicians because that's what they've controlled these communities for up to a hundred years, mr.
Trump fern and I'll tell you, look at the city centers, I just left Detroit and I just left Philadelphia, and you know you've seen me, I've been everywhere, you decided to stay home and that's fine, but I'll tell you that I've been everywhere and I've met some of the best people I've ever met within these communities and they are very, very upset with what their politicians have told them and what their politicians have done. I think I think Donald just criticized me for preparing for this

debate

and yes, I did and you know what else I prepared for.
I prepared to be president and I think that's good. For five years you perpetuated a false claim that the nation's first black president was not a natural-born citizen. You question his legitimacy in recent weeks. It recognizes what most Americans have accepted for years. The president was born in the United States. Can you tell us what led you to tell him very well? very easy to say Sidney Blumenthal works for the campaign and she is very close friends with Secretary Clinton and her campaign manager, Paddy Doyle, who she turned to during the campaign. His campaign against President Obama fought very hard and you can go find him and check it out and if you watch on CNN.
Last week, Patti Solis Doyle was on Wolf Blitzer saying this happened. Blumenthal sent a highly respected McClatchy reporter to Kenya to find out. They were putting a lot of pressure on him. She didn't get the birth certificate when I got

involved

. I did it. I didn't fail, I got him to give me the birth certificate, so I'm satisfied with it and I'll tell you why I'm satisfied with it, because I want to continue defeating Isis, because I want to continue creating jobs. because I want to move on to having a strong border because I want to move on to things that are very important to me and that are very important to the country I will let you answer it is important but I just want to get the answer here the birth certificate was produced in 2011 you continued telling history and questioning the legitimacy of the president in 2012 13 14 15 as recently as January, so the question is what changed, well, no one was pushing, no one cared much, I thought you'd ask.
Tonight's question, of course, but no one cared much, but I was the one who got him to produce the birth certificate and I think I did a good job. Secretary Clinton also objected. I mean, you know, now everyone in the mainstream will be like, “Oh.” that's not true, look, it's true, Sidney Blumenthal sent a reporter, you just have to look at CNN last week, the interview with your former campaign manager and she was

involved

, but like she can't take back the jobs it cannot produce. I'm sorry, she's going to fall. I'll let you answer that because if there's a lot there, but we're talking about racial healing in this segment, what do you say to Americans?
Well, it was very. I say no, I don't say anything because I was able to get him to produce it, I should have produced it a long time before I didn't say anything, but let me tell you that when you talk about healing, I think I've developed very, very good relationships lately with him. African. American community I think you can see that and I feel like they really wanted me to come to that conclusion and I think I did a great job in a great service not only to the country but even to the president in getting him to produce the person of him.
Well, just listen to what you heard and clearly, as Donald just admitted, he knew he was going to be on this

debate

stage and Lester Holt was going to ask us questions, so he tried to leave out the whole racist Birther lie, but can not. It can't be dismissed so easily, he actually started his political activity based on this racist lie that our first black president was not an American citizen; there was absolutely no evidence of it, but it persisted, it persisted year after year because some of his supporters say that he was trying to bring him into his fold apparently he believed it or wanted to believe it, but remember Donald started his career in 1973 being sued by the Department of Justice for racial discrimination because he didn't rent apartments and one of his developments to African Americans and did I'm sure the people who work for him understood that that was the policy.
He was actually sued twice by the Department of Justice, so he has a long history of engaging in racist Behe ​​and Birther's lie was very hurtful. You know, Barack Obama is a man of great dignity and I could tell how much he was upset and upset that this was being promoted and used against him, but I like to remember what Michelle Obama said in her incredible speech at our Democratic National Convention When they go down, we go up, and Barack Obama went high despite Donald Trump's best efforts to take him down. Trump, you can respond that we respond first of all.
In preparation for this, I was able to watch some of your debates against Barack Obama. You treated him with terrible disrespect and I watched the way you talk now about how beautiful everything is and how wonderful you are. It doesn't work that way, you chased him, you tried, you even sent or your campaign sent photos of him in a certain outfit, very famous photos. I don't think you can deny that, but last week your campaign manager said it. it was true so when you try to act holier than thou it doesn't really work it really works and now as far as the lawsuit goes yeah when he was really young he wanted to do it.
My father's company had a real estate company in Brooklyn and Queens and we along with many other companies around the country when a federal lawsuit was sued, we settled the lawsuit for zero with no admission of guilt, it was very easy to do, but They sued many people. I noticed you mention that a lot and you know I do too. I noticed the very unpleasant ads that you make to me in so many different ways that I don't and you might be trying to save the money, but frankly, I look at that and I look at that and I'm like, that's amazing because I settled. that lawsuit without admission of guilt, but it was a lawsuit filed against a lot of real estate companies and it's just one of those things.
I'll go a step further in Palm Beach, Florida, a tough community, a bright community, a rich community, probably the richest community there. In the world I opened a club and I really got a lot of credit for it, there is no discrimination against African Americans, against Muslims, against anyone, and it's a tremendously successful club and I'm very glad I did it and I've been given a lot of credit for it. what I did. I did it and I'm very, very proud of it and that's the way I feel, that's the real way I feel.
