Donald Trump says stop-and-frisk would work for Chicago

Donald Trump lamented a “lack of spirit between the white and the black” that he said was on display in violent demonstrations overnight in Charlotte, N.C., and said distrust between law enforcement and the public seemed to be getting worse.

“You have to have law and order,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends” on Thursday. But at the same time, “there has to be a unity message somehow that has to get out, and it starts with leadership.”

Trump defended advocating an expanded stop-and-frisk policy, saying that it “really straightened things out” in New York City. He suggested it was not necessarily a nationwide policy¬†but one that could work in Chicago.

“You have 3,000 people shot and so many people dying — I mean, it’s worse than some of the places we’re hearing about, like Afghanistan,” he said. “You have to do something. It can’t continue the way it’s going.”
