Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have both responded to the shooting of a dozen police officers in Dallas, Texas on Thursday. Read them below:
At 9:06 a.m. this morning, Hillary Clinton released a Facebook message expressing her mourning for victims of the Dallas murders that left 5 police officers dead.
“I mourn for the officers shot while doing their sacred duty to protect peaceful protesters, for their families, and all who serve with them.”
After Donald Trump had sent out a message on Twitter at 7:02 a.m., he posted the following Facebook response:
The statement reads:
“Last night’s horrific execution-style shootings of 12 Dallas law enforcement officers – five of whom were killed and seven wounded- is an attack on our country. It is a coordinated, premeditated assault on the men and women who keep us safe.
We must restore law and order. We must restore the confidence of our people to be safe and secure in their homes and on the street.
The senseless, tragic deaths of two people in Louisiana and Minnesota reminds us how much more needs to be done.”
While Trump and Clinton are on the same page for once, their true differences will no doubt be seen going forward. Trump will likely blame the attackers and their rhetoric. Clinton, of course, will blame the gun.
