"Americans want law and order, they demand law and order", Trump said at a ceremony at the White House, reiterating a call that has angered protesters who have poured onto streets from NY to Los Angeles.

He is also encouraging departments to implement accreditation policies for officers. They are not mutually exclusive. "These standards will be as high and as strong as there is on Earth", said the president.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order aimed at changing policing practices as weeks-long protests against police brutality continue to take place across the country. He, framed his plan as an alternative to the "defund the police" movement to fully revamp departments that has emerged from the protests and which he slammed as "radical and risky".

"The order bears the imprint of police unions as reflected by the absence of any procedures for promoting accountability", said Clarke.

The flurry of activity shows how quickly the mass protests over police violence and racial prejudice are transforming politics in the US.

- Campaign slogan - But Trump has struck a hardline tone throughout the tense period, sparking uproar even from his own party with his warning that he could send federal troops to cities unable to control the crowds.

Scott, who said he spoke with Trump about the legislation over the weekend, warned Monday that delaying voting until later this summer would be a "bad decision".

The Republican bill does not go as far as the Democrats' on the issue of eliminating qualified immunity, which would allow those injured by law enforcement personnel to sue for damages.

Democrats and civil rights groups say that full-scale rethinking of police culture, and even cuts in police funding, are needed to bring necessary change. As an alternative, Scott has suggested a "decertification" process for officers involved in misconduct.
