Top White House aide Kellyanne Conway has admitted that there is "absolutely" institutional racism in the US, The Washington Examiner reported.
"It is absolutely the case that there is institutional racism and that there is a lack of equality for all people in this country. I think that is without doubt," said Conway, President Trump's senior counselor, speaking to reporters Tuesday.
"We watched a man be murdered before our eyes on a videotape. As painful as it is to watch, I think most people should bring themselves to watch all eight minutes and 49 seconds or so of George Floyd's murder. I don't have another word for it," Conway said.
"I'm very happy that the Department of Justice has opened up a civil rights investigation at the federal level. We'll see what comes of that," Conway said. "What was done to George Floyd was murder."
