Trump retweets racially charged crime data


Washington (CNN)Donald Trump retweeted an image Sunday that compares black-on-black murders to police killings.

Trump's @realDonaldTrump Twitter account highlighted a photograph featuring a dark-skinned man wearing a bandana, a dark shirt and military-style pants and holding a handgun sideways and claiming to list 2015 crime statistics.
