WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Donald Trump says he doesn’t know what a police officer was thinking when she shot an unarmed Tulsa man.

Trump said during an appearance Wednesday at a Cleveland Heights church that he is a “tremendous believer in the police and law and enforcement.”

But he questions the actions of the police officer who shot and killed Terence Crutcher, who was unarmed when he was shot alongside his vehicle in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Trump says he’s seen video of the incident, and that it looked like Crutcher had done everything right.

Trump says he is “very, very troubled” by the actions of the officer. He says: “People that choke, people that do that, maybe they can’t be doing what they’re doing.”
