In his first remarks on Thursday’s Dallas cop murders, President Barack Obama offered condolences to the police officers and then used this as an occasion to push for gun control, despite not knowing how that would have affected the situation. Of course, it wasn’t well received.
On the other hand, let’s take a look at how Donald Trump treated Dallas police officers when he was in the city?
Three weeks ago, he landed in the Texas metropolis to campaign.

He went down the line of Dallas police officers, shaking the hands of each and every one of them and thanking them for their service to our citizens.
Took another look at a still Scavino’s video:
“This is how he acts everywhere we go,” Trump social media director Dan Scavino said. “Trump has a true appreciation for law enforcement. This isn’t a show. This is the real Donald Trump!”
Trump was also much more ecumenical in his remarks on Facebook after the attack, which took the lives of five officers.
“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,” Trump wrote on Facebook.
The Democrat Party has spent years using division as a calling card. Nowhere was that more evident than in the aftermath of the Dallas shootings.
Trump, on the other hand, has supported law enforcement since the beginning of his campaign. That’s the kind of uniting we expect from a president.
