Donald Trump on San Diego Police Shooting: ‘It is Only Getting Worse’

Republican nominee Donald Trump is responding to the shooting of two police officers in San Diego, California, where at least one officer was killed late Thursday night, saying police shootings across the country are “only getting worse.”

Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort also reacted to the San Diego shooting during an appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

“What’s going on in America is a result of seven and a half years of failed leadership and too often making the police and law enforcement agencies into the bad guys. They’re not the bad guys,” Manafort declared on Friday morning. “Now everybody has got the right message including the administration, but until there’s strong leadership — leadership that gives direction to the country — you’re going to continue to have this kind of lawlessness, unfortunately.”

Around 11 p.m. PST on Thursday night, two police officers were conducting a routine traffic stop in San Diego, California when they were shot, according to NBC. One has died and the other is expected to survive. Authorities have detained one suspect and are searching for others.
