Trump to sign order on police changes as Democrats urge more

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will sign an executive order on policing Tuesday following weeks of national protests after the death of George Floyd.

The order is aimed at encouraging best practices and tracking officers with excessive use of force complaints.

It comes as Senate Republicans prepare to unveil their own package of policing proposals after Democrats did the same.

The rush is a sudden shift for the Republican Party, and it's one that Democrats are watching warily after mass protests over police actions and racial prejudice swept through the country.
