Will protests in the US lead to a political change? | Trump

The killing of George Floyd has reignited pent-up anger towards racism and police brutality in the United States.

Since his death in Minneapolis more than a week ago, there have been nationwide, mainly peaceful, protests.

People defied curfews in more than 140 cities to demand justice for Floyd and other Black Americans who have died at the hands of the police.

But President Donald Trump has threatened to shoot those looting amid the protests and send in the army.

Presumptive Democratic nominee, former Vice President President Joe Biden, says Trump is making the country even more divided.

So, is there enough momentum to change laws and attitudes in a polarized election year?
