US Congress, Trump contest police reforms after protests

Just one day after George Floyd was laid to rest, his brother testified at a congressional hearing looking at racial inequality and police violence in the United States.
Philonise Floyd called his brother’s death a “modern-day lynching in broad daylight” and urged politicians to “stop the pain”.
