On Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie slammed President Obama on endorsing the Black Lives Matter movement, which he says has called for the killing of law enforcement officials. He explains:
The problem is this, there’s lawlessness in this country. The president encourages this lawlessness. He encourages it. He does not support the police, he doesn’t back up the police, he justifies Black Lives Matter.
The comments were made during his interview with John Dickerson. When pressed on whether the Black Lives Matter shouldn’t be justified at all, Christie said:
I don’t believe that movement should be calling for the murder of police officers.
When the host interrupted to say that “they’re not calling for the murder of police officers,” Christie fired back.
Sure, they are. They’ve been chanting in the streets for the murder of police officers.
