Donald Trump on Monday seemed to accused President Obama of being partially responsible for the recent murders of police officers and for fueling an anti-police sentiments.

"I mean, you know, I watch the president and sometimes the words are okay but you just look at the body language," Trump said. "There's something going on. Look, there's something going on. And the words are not often okay, by the way."

His comments came in a an interview about the shooting of six police officers, three fatally, in Baton Rouge on Sunday morning. The shootings occurred when police responded to a 911 call that a man dressed in black and armed with what appeared to be an ­assault-style rifle was walking near a shopping plaza about a mile from police headquarters.

When the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was asked what he means by something going on: "There's just bad feeling. And a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it, too. There's a lot of bad feeling about him. We have a country that has not been like this since I can remember it."

Trump, in response to a question on whether African Americans have a different experience with police, said, "Well, it's probably something that we really don't know and maybe we can't feel it unless we're black. It is a, definitely something going on there also."

Trump praised the police in Cleveland, where the Republican National Convention kicks off today, and said that police are treated unfairly. He said that even though he hated seeing the videos of black men getting killed, "if an incident happens, those things get blown up and they're on for weeks" and they overshadow the good work police do.
