Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reacted to the past 48 hours of events in Charlotte, NC including the civil unrest, all over the fatal police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. According Trump, there was an element of unity lacking that starts with leadership. “Well, there really has to be – you have to have law and order, at the same time you have to have a certain spirit, a certain unity. There’s no unity. You look at the level of hatred – you know the rocks being thrown and everything happening, it’s so sad to see, you know, that this is so sad to see that this is the United States of America. And it’s so sad to see. But there’s just no unity. There has to be a unity message that has to get out and it starts with leadership.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor
