June 11, 2020

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow has repeatedly said Wednesday he “does not believe” that there is systemic racism in the United States as part of the wave of outrage and mass protests that have resulted from the death of African American George Floyd through the US, the police surrender in Minéapolis.

“I don’t think so,” said Kudlow, asking the White House reporter about the fact, the CNN television broadcaster reported. “I don’t think so,” he insisted, again and again, “I’ll say it again: I don’t think so.”

“I believe in the harm if you have some very bad apples on the law enforcement side,” said the director of the White House National Economic Council. “What was done to Mr. Floyd was miserable. Abyssal,” he said. “I think everyone in this country agrees.”

“The president is a man of law and order, law and order is good for growth,” he said. “Law and order are good for families, they are good for people of all colors,” he continued. In this sense, he has assured that “there will be reforms related to the police and other areas”.

“I have fought for equality, including civil rights, for most of my adult professional life, but I don’t think the United States has systemic racism right now. We have some bad apples in the police stations, and that will change,” said Kudlow. .
