Donald Trump reacts to Dallas attack

Late Thursday night, 11 Dallas police officers were shot ambush-style, including five fatally, by at least two snipers, amid a protest against the recent deaths of Sterling and Castile, according to the Dallas Police.

Trump cancelled a speech in Miami on Hispanic issues and instead released a lengthy statement calling the shootings in Dallas "a co-ordinated, premeditated assault on the men and women who keep us safe".

Hundreds of people gathered in Dallas to protest the killings Thursday night when a gunman opened fire, killing five police officers and injuring seven others.

She repeatedly said their names.

The post was one of many Mr. Walsh has been sharing that have been fraught with racial tensions, and attempting to put blame on the Black Lives Matter movement and President Obama for the shootings.

The Trump campaign's state chairman in Virginia also drew widespread condemnation on Friday for posting a message on Facebook that blamed Hillary Clinton for the attack in Dallas.

Law enforcement, he said, "is the force between civilization and total chaos".

Trump also made his first mention of the two black men killed by police this week in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and suburban St. Paul, Minnesota.

In Philadelphia, Clinton cited "clear evidence that African Americans are much more likely to be killed in police incidents than any other group of Americans". We need to be bringing people together.

Stewart wrote Clinton, as well as Virginia's Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, were "essentially encouraging the murder of these police officers" by labeling police as racists.

"Va. Lt. Governor Ralph Northam and Hillary Clinton are pitting minorities against the police", it said.

The term refers to the notion that many people unconsciously hold reflexive prejudices that influence the type of exchanges police officers handle every day.

He says in an early morning tweet: "Prayers and condolences to all of the families who are so thoroughly devastated by the horrors we are all watching take place in our country".

Disagreements on race relations and guns have become firmly entrenched in the politics of the world's most powerful nation.

Clinton campaigned with President Barack Obama on Tuesday and her appearance with Biden in Pennsylvania, a general election battleground state, had been aimed at building party unity before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. "We will make America safe again". "This isn't the American Dream we all want for our children", the presumptive Republican presidential candidate said.

And she asked white Americans to try to understand the experience of black Americans and "to imagine what it would feel like if people followed us around stores, or locked their vehicle doors when we walked past".

Clinton called Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins to offer any help she could provide, said a campaign official who asked not to be named.

Josh Greenfield, who drove with his friends from Syracuse, N.Y., to try to get autographs, wondered why Clinton couldn't have used the event to address the Dallas tragedy.

"The senseless, tragic deaths of two motorists in Louisiana and Minnesota reminds us how much more needs to be done", Trump said in his statement.

"All I know is that this must stop, this divisiveness between our police and our citizens", said Brown, who is black.

"We wish to advise all Bahamians traveling to the USA but especially to the affected cities to exercise appropriate caution generally", the government said in a release.

Clinton also postponed a fundraiser in Scranton on Friday. Remember what those officers were doing when they died.
