Donald Trump pushed the idea that cops using chokeholds is an “innocent” and “perfect” way to stop suspects. While Trump did acknowledge that chokeholds should be banned, he offered instances where it would be necessary.

“I think the concept of chokeholds sounds so innocent so perfect,” Trump told Fox News host Harris Faulkner in a pre-recorded interview that aired Friday afternoon, “and then you realize if it’s a one-on-one now if it’s a two-on-one that’s a little bit of a different story – depending – depending on the toughness and strength, you know we’re talking about toughness and strength, we are talking there’s a physical thing here also.”

“But if a police officer is in a bad scuffle, and he’s got somebody in a chokehold –”

“What if it’s a one-on-one?” Faulkner interjected.

“Yeah – and that does happen, that does happen,” Trump replied. “So you have to be careful. With that being said, it would be, I think, very good thing that generally speaking, it should be ended.”
