Donald Trump Believes The Black Lives Matter Movement Is "Looking For Trouble"
"I think it’s a disgrace that they're getting away with it.”
Donald Trump has been at the center of controversy due to his sometimes outlandish comments while making his run for president, and it seems as if this week's comments from the businessman will also ruffle a few feathers.
The 69-year-old former television personality sat with Bill O'Reilly Tuesday night (September 8) to discuss the migrant crisis in Europe along with Kim Davis, a county clerk who refused to issue licenses for same-sex marriages in Kentucky. After giving his two cents on both those current affairs, Trump and O'Reilly turned their attention to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Trump, who's campaign slogan is "Make America Great Again" said he thinks BLM is a group of agitators more so than a movement of organizers working towards equality.
“I think they’re trouble. I think they're looking for trouble,” Trump said.
O'Reilly pushed his question further and asked Trump what he thinks the group actually wants, to which Trump countered with the "All Lives Matter" agenda and alluded to some of the movements protestors being hateful.
"I’ve looked at a couple of the people that were interviewed from the group. I saw them with hate coming down the street last week talking about cops and police and what should be done to them, and that was not good. I think it’s a disgrace that they're getting away with it.”
Trump's statements come on the heels of Elisabeth Hasselebeck's comments after asking a conservative author why Black Lives Matter isn't considered a hate group. The question incited many, which found the former talk show host of The View on the receiving end of the Internet's wrath.
