Trump Defends Anti-BLM Tweets By Quoting Philly Mayor Whose Slogan Was ‘Vote White’: Watch

Donald Trump appeared on Fox News on Thursday where he was asked to defend his tweets that called Black Lives Matter protestors “thugs.”

Trump was interviewed by Fox News personality Harris Faulkner, who asked him specifically about one of his tweets – the tweet below, which has been flagged by Twitter.

The line, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts” was infamously said by then-Miami Police Chief Walter Headley in 1967.

But according to Trump, he got the line from former Philadelphia Mayor Frank Rizzo, who once used the slogan “vote white.”

Take a look at Trump’s remarks in the video clip below:
