Transcript for Will Biden follow through with his promise of police reform?
sources there that the president has been following this trial, but thus far, he has not proposed any new police reform measures. So let's bring in ABC's Maryalice parks. Maryalice, good morning to you. Police reform was a campaign promise for Joe Biden. Should we expect any actual action here? Reporter: Yeah, good morning, Dan. The president often talks about meeting George Floyd's daughter, what an impact that made on him, but like you said, during the campaign he pitched a police oversight board and said he would get it done in the first 100 days in office. We haven't seen that from the president or any big push on police reform from this white house. We've seen states move on the issue just this week.

You know, it's no coincidence that the president has members of his cabinet who are former mayors and former governors out there trying to sell this package, talking about their direct experience, their understanding of what's needed in the states, but so far, Republicans are just firmly opposed to the president's ideas for paying for this all. The president said he wants to raise the corporate tax raise close tore where it was before president trump's tax cuts, and Republicans, you know, they helped put those tax cuts for corporations in place.
