Trump: ‘Our Country Is Divided and Out of Control’

The murders of three police officers in Baton Rouge, La., on Sunday gave Donald Trump another chance to criticize President Obama, MailOnline reported.

Gavin Eugene Long, 29, ambushed the cops at a gas station, according to law-enforcement officials. The Kansas City resident also allegedly injured three other officers before police shot and killed him.

“How many law enforcement and people have to die because of a lack of leadership in our country? We demand law and order,” Trump wrote on Facebook. “We are trying to fight ISIS, and now our own people are killing our police. Our country is divided and out of control. The world is watching.”

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee added in a later message: “Our country is totally divided and our enemies are watching. We are not looking good, we are not looking smart, we are not looking tough. President Obama just had a news conference, but he doesn’t have a clue. Our country is a divided crime scene, and it will only get worse.”

Trump called for better border control, and repeated his pledge to stop Muslims from entering the United States if he wins the election in November.

The billionaire businessman made the comments the day before Republicans began their national convention in Cleveland, Ohio. He secured enough delegates during the primary process to clinch the party’s presidential nomination.
