Donald Trump predicts more protest violence to come this summer

When asked if he agrees with Giuliani's thoughts, Donald Trump said he's heard the group's activists say "horrible, awful things about police and about others", adding that, "if they're going to allow that to go along rhetorically, this is not a good thing for our country".

Droves of people were marching down the city's most prominent shopping district. "Number two: Black Lives Matter never protests when every 14 hours somebody is killed in Chicago, probably 70-80% of the time (by) a black person".

The demos come days after black army Afghan war veteran Micah Johnson, 25, used a high-powered rifle to kill five police officers and wound seven in a sniper attack at a protest in Dallas, Texas late Thursday.

NYPD Commissioner William Bratton told NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday that while Giuliani's criticisms of Black Lives Matter are "appropriate" because the movement paints police negatively, the top cop acknowledged there are bad players within the police force. I am perfectly capable of understanding when police officers act improperly and they should be made an example of when they do.

"We can not allow, and I certainly will not tolerate, any organization that seeks to define the police profession - the whole police profession - as racist or brutal or corrupt, because it is not", he said. Where are they when the young black child is killed? ". I'd also say be very careful of those kids in the neighborhood, don't get involved with them because, son, there's a 99 percent chance they're going to kill you, not the police". "The truth is, number one.I prosecuted more police officers than any other mayor in NY history", Giuliani told Fox.

"I mean, you were having big, big trouble in many cities".

Discussing the recent police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille, in New Orleans and Minnesota and the targeted murder of five police officers in Dallas, Giuliani held nothing back.

Comedian Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" and a biracial native of South Africa, said people "shouldn't have to choose between the police and the citizens that they are sworn to protect".

"I don't believe in a Blue Lives Matter movement in the same way that I don't believe in a White Lives Matter movement or a Men's Lives Matter movement", she said. "We haven't had enough positive action taken on making change and I am very encouraged by the Black Lives Matter movement".

Neither side should stereotype the other, said Gregory Thomas, president of the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives. "African-Americans are absolutely losing their spirit".

DeRay Mckesson, leader of the Black Lives Matter movement, blasted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, once referred to as "America's Mayor", calling him a "disgrace to the country and an embarrassment". That's just a simple fact.
