Donald Trump says he believes relations between police and the nation's African-American community are "far worse" than people think, predicting that protests against police violence that followed last week's slaying of five police officers in Dallas "might be just the beginning for this summer".Trump suggested that a lack of training for officers might be at least partially to blame for the two police shootings that led to last Thursday's protest in Dallas, where a lone gunman killed five in an act of vengeance against white officers. At the same time, Trump denounced the name of the Black Lives Matter movement as "a very divisive term". Trump said he was disturbed by the images of the killings of Alton Sterling, who was shot by police last Tuesday in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after being pinned to the pavement by two officers.Trump framed that issue in largely economic terms, blaming the mood of the nation's black community on high unemployment and low wages.Trump went on to predict the problem would only grow worse.Trump also had harsh words for the Black Lives Matters movement, which has organized some of the protests.
