WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is beginning his rally outside Indianapolis with prepared remarks about the police officers gunned down in Texas last week, saying, "Our whole nation grieves and mourns for the loss of five heroes in Dallas."
Trump says the police "are not just part of our society, they are the best of our society."
Trump is once again calling himself the "law and order" candidate.
He is also acknowledging the deaths of men in Louisiana and Minnesota at the hands of officers, saying: "It was tough to watch. We have to figure it out." He questions whether inadequate officer training or "something else" was responsible for the incidents.
President Barack Obama spoke at the memorial service for the police Tuesday in Dallas.
