THE HILL: Trump ‘troubled’ by Tulsa shooting.

Donald Trump says he is “very troubled” by the killing of an unarmed black man by police in Oklahoma, adding that it looked like the man killed did everything he should have done when he was confronted by police.

Trump offered the comments on Wednesday during a visit to a historically black church in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, before an African-American congregation.

“I watched the shooting, in part, in Tulsa, and that man was hands up,” Trump said. “That man went to the car, hands up, put his hands on the car.

“To me, it looked like he did everything you’re supposed to do. The young officer — I don’t know what she was thinking. But I’m very, very troubled by that.”

It’s possible to believe both that we have a problem with excessive police violence, and that Black Lives Matter is a bunch of race-baiting frauds. Since, you know, both statements are true.
