Donald Trump called the ambush on police officers in Dallas, TX an “attack on our country.” He went on to say that the incident proves Americans have “become too divided” and that we must restore law and order so that American citizens can feel secure both in their homes and in the streets.
Trump also commented on the recent shooting of two black men by police that reportedly spurred the Dallas shooters into action.
“The senseless, tragic deaths of two motorists in Louisiana and Minnesota reminds us how much more needs to be done.”
He believes that too many Americans have lost hope and that the key to restoring that hope is to restore the core values of the American Dream. He released the following statement on his official Facebook page.
He was uncharacteristically quiet on his twitter feed releasing only one tweet on the issue.
According to Trump the only way to “pull through these tragedies” is with the help of strong leadership.
“Crime is harming too many citizens. Racial tensions have gotten worse, not better. This isn’t the American Dream we all want for our children.”
Trump has decided to postpone his speech on economic opportunity, scheduled to take place in Miami on July 8, due to the shooting in Dallas.
