In an interview with CNN, Donald Trump blamed thugs for the violence in San Jose.
“The people who burn our American flags, they're thugs,” Trump said. He then went on to say that police need to be able to do their job and they're afraid to do anything at the risk of losing their jobs.
Trump made it clear to CNN's Jake Tapper that it wasn't his people who started the violence.
“I think they're sent by the democrats,” Trump suggests.
