JUST IN: Rep. Val Demings, a former police chief, responds to claim by acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf that there’s no “systemic racism” in policing: “We know that we have been fighting systemic racism in this country for 400 years.'

As protests of police brutality continue across the country in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in police custody, the acting secretary of Homeland Security pushed back against the notion that incidents like Floyd's killing are the manifestation of systemic racism within law enforcement agencies.

The comments, which strike at the core argument behind the demonstrations that have swept throughout the nation in the past two weeks, were quickly criticized by Rep. Val Demings in a subsequent"This Week" interview.

Ex-acting Labor secretary defends BLS in the wake of jobs report misclassification errorThe former acting head of the Labor Department under the Obama administration said he believes a 'misclassification error' in the May jobs report, which may place the real unemployment rate higher than the one touted by President Donald Trump, was not done intentionally to make the White House look better, and defended the Bureau of Labor Statistics as 'career professionals.' So this is how leadership works. Unfortunately it was the former leader who stepped out and defended his former employees that he believes made an honest mistake. As opposed to denying the mistake, cliaming it doesn’t matter, or just no response or leadership at all. Every one involved in these terrorist acts will have to go to jail, 🤣😂🤣😂🤣
