If that rate continues, the death toll will be higher than last year's total of 48. In both years, about a third of those shot have been black. In the past, the loose coalition called Black Lives Matter has staged street protests after such incidents — but in the era of Donald Trump, its tactics are changing.
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences.
