Trump weighs in on Dallas attack
WASHINGTON - In the shadow of the deadly police attacks in Dallas, Donald Trump is saying "our nation is too divided."
Trump says in a statement "we must restore law and order in our country" and "we must restore the confidence of people to be safe and secure in their homes and on the street."
Trump also made his first mention of the two black men killed by police this week in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban St. Paul, Minnesota. Their deaths prompted the protest in Dallas interrupted by the shootings that killed five police officers.
Trump said the "senseless, tragic deaths of two motorists in Louisiana and Minnesota" are a reminder "how much more needs to be done."
He says "too many Americans feel like they've lost hope" and "racial tensions have gotten worse, not better."
