CNN:

The order, which also sets financial incentives for police departments to establish credentialing programs and follow standard "best practices," is a modest attempt by Trump to confront a national reckoning over racial inequities and law enforcement.

Trump said in his speech that under his executive order "chokeholds will be banned, except when an officer's life is at risk," though only those police departments that choose to get certified would have to comply with that standard.

Trump can't ban any ban on chokeholds in any state so his decision in meaningless.
