Trump Calls for “Law and Order” and “A Spirit of Unity” in Charlotte

by Phillip Stucky

Republican nominee Donald Trump reacted to the ongoing violent protests in Charlotte, North Carolina on Fox and Friends Thursday morning.

“It’s a terrible thing we’re witnessing. Something’s going on that’s bad. This is the United States of America,” Trump said over the phone.

“Well, it’s ‘wow, here we go again, You look at what went on last night in Charlotte, and we’re seeing it. I’m not overly surprised to see it,” Trump added. “What’s going between police and others is getting worse. You have to have law and order. At the same time you have to have a spirit of unity.”

The protests began after police shot and killed Terrence Crutcher in a video that went live almost immediately. Police report that Crutcher refused to comply with police demands, and that he was reaching into his car when he was shot.

Crutcher family attorney Benjamin Crump reports that Crutcher was unarmed, and that the driver side window was closed, meaning it was impossible for Crutcher to reach into his car.
