Trump: Black Lives Matter Has Lit Fuse of Murders of Cops, Will Have To ‘Perhaps Talk With the Attorney General About It’

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “O’Reilly Factor,” presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump argued that in some instances, Black Lives Matter has lit the fuse in the assassination of police officers and “we are going to have to, perhaps, talk with the attorney general about it, or do something, but, at a minimum, we’re going to have to be watching.”

Trump said “I’ve seen them marching down the street, essentially calling death to the police, and I think we’re going to have to look into that, especially in light of what’s happening with these maniacs going and shooting our police.”

He added, “[T]hat’s really a threat, if you think about it, and when you see something like that taking place, we are going to have to, perhaps, talk with the attorney general about it, or do something, but, at a minimum, we’re going to have to be watching. Because hat’s really bad stuff, and it’s happened more than once.”

When asked if he thought Black Lives Matter is “a fuse-lighter in the assassinations of these police officers?” Trump answered, “Well, certainly in certain instances they are, and they certainly have ignited people, and you see that. You see that all over. And I think it’s a very, very serious situation, and we just can’t let it happen. Now, everybody is free to say what you want to say, up to a point, but when you’re calling death to police and to kill the police, essentially, which is what they said, that’s a real problem, Bill.”
