President Barack Obama spoke in a press conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Sunday morning following the murder of three law enforcement officers.  The President asked to “temper our words and open our hearts.”

Tensions between police officers and communities has been a major focal point of the President after five police officers were gunned down in Dallas, Texas.

The attacks on police officers occurred early Sunday morning. The suspect, killed at the scene, ambushed the officers. The shooter, Gavin Long, was a 29-year-old man from Missouri and served in the Marines for 5 years.

Officials investigating the motives of Long show that he recently joined pro-black groups and posted to YouTube, stating the only thing people understand is “revenue and blood.”

Obama warned that the recent violent attacks on police officers is likely to continue. “Only we can prove, through words and through deeds, that we will not be divided.” The President also informed the public that a fourth police officer is in critical condition. Three officers died during the attack, with three others injured in the incident.

“Around the clock news cycles and social media sometimes amplify these divisions,” stated the President.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump took to Twitter immediately following Obama’s speech to criticize the President, stating, “He doesn’t have a clue. Our country is a divided crime scene, and it will only get worse!”

    I’m sure Lynch is sorry for her meeting with her a..hole buddy. That is what cost her job & she will ever be known for her criminal ways & be called LYIN-LORETTA. She ruined her career in all Law enforcement & that is well earned. We hope HILLARY paid you enough hush money to retire on. No matter what you won’t feel the pain of it all for a few years but it will forever haunt you. You will be lucky if Jeff Sessions chooses not to prosecute you. For a smart person you are pretty damn dumb. Have a lousy Christmas you earned it & never, ever have a Happy New Year again. You have lost any and all respect even your families had for you. To you go my best regards.
