Trump: ‘I Was Really Referring To Chicago With Stop-and-Frisk’

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stated that he was “really referring to Chicago” with his comments that he would “do stop-and-frisk.”

Trump said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:00] after praising the program’s effectiveness in New York City, “Now Chicago is out of control, and I was really referring to Chicago with stop-and-frisk. They asked me about Chicago, and I was talking about stop-and-frisk for Chicago. And where you had 3,000 shootings so far this year. 3,000 from January 1st. And obviously, you can’t let the system go the way it’s going, but I suggested stop-and-frisk, and some people think that’s a great idea, and some probably don’t like it. But when you have 3,000 people shot and so many people dying, I mean, it’s worse than some of the places we’re hearing about, like Afghanistan, you know, the war-torn nations. I mean, this — it’s more dangerous.”
