WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is calling for unity after the shootings of black men in two cities.

The Republican nominee tweeted Wednesday: “The situations in Tulsa and Charlotte are tragic. We must come together to make America safe again.”

Terence Crutcher was unarmed when he was shot alongside his vehicle in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Keith Lamont Scott was shot Tuesday in Charlotte, North Carolina. Officers say he was armed. But a woman claiming to be Scott’s daughter said in an online post that he was unarmed. The shooting prompted a demonstration that injured about a dozen police officers.

Trump tweeted: “Hopefully the violence & unrest in Charlotte will come to an immediate end. To those injured, get well soon. We need unity & leadership.”
