When asked about racial tensions in the United States, Trump gave a rambling answer about promoting "law and order" while painting a picture of inner cities as places where people cannot "walk down the street" without getting shot. The Republican presidential nominee again touted the effectiveness of stop-and-frisk, which has been ruled unconstitutional, saying it would help to take guns away from criminals.
Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and others have bashed his description as an out-of-touch view of urban communities. She said Monday it is "really unfortunate that he paints such a dire, negative picture of black communities in our country."
Clinton said stop-and-frisk was "demonstrated to not work," adding that she aims to restore trust between police and citizens and "remedy some of the problems we have in the criminal justice system."
She said she supports community policing.
