WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump is vowing to “make America safe again” and calling for national unity.

The Republican presidential contender posted a video on Facebook Friday evening to address the week’s killings of five police officers and two black men.

He called on the nation to “stand in solidarity with law enforcement,” saying, “A brutal attack on our police force is an attack on our country, and an attack on our families.”

Law enforcement, he said, “is the force between civilization and total chaos.”

He also addressed the police shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana. Their deaths, he said, “make clear how much more work we have to do to make every American feel that their safety is protected.”

Trump finished his brief remarks by saying: “Now is the time for prayers, love, unity and leadership. Our children deserve a better future than what we’re making them live through today. But to get them there, we must work together and stand together. We will make America safe again.”
