Trump Responds To Riots Last Night in Charlotte

In what is becoming an all-too-common occurrence in America under the Obama administration, riots broke out in Charlotte, North Carolina last night after claims that a black man was unarmed when he was fatally shot by police.

According to NBC News, authorities are saying they were searching for someone with an outstanding warrant when 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott exited his car holding a handgun. Police say Scott threatened them with the gun and ignored repeated orders to put it down. One officer fired, killing him.

After a social media post by Scott's family claimed he was only holding a book — which police have not found — violent protests broke out in Charlotte. Police lobbed tear gas at a large crowd of rioters who were blocking a freeway, torching a tractor trailer's cargo, and damaging police vehicles. At least 12 officers were also injured as protesters hurled rocks at them.

The violence got so bad that even U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch condemned it this morning, criticizing the rioting because it "undermines the very justice that it seeks to achieve."

On the news yesterday as well was a video released of an officer-involved shooting in Tulsa Friday where officers shot and killed an apparently unarmed black man who kept refusing to comply to their orders, according to CNN.

Donald Trump addressed the incidences in Tulsa and Charlotte on Twitter this morning, writing, "The situations in Tulsa and Charlotte are tragic. We must come together to make America safe again. Hopefully the violence & unrest in Charlotte will come to an immediate end. To those injured, get well soon. We need unity & leadership."
