Trump eyes racial equality debate through economic lens

WASHINGTON (AP) — In his comments since George Floyd died, President Donald Trump has remained largely silent on the subject of racism, except to argue that a strong economy is the best antidote. He has shared lots of opinions about the need for “law and order,” about fighting crime and the dangerous ideas of the “liberal left.” Asked recently about his plans to address racial inequality, he framed his answer through an economic prism. He said that what’s been happening in reviving employment “is the greatest thing that can happen for race relations. ”
