During President Trump's visit to Kenosha, he addressed the family of Jacob Blake, who was shot seven times in the back by a police officer.

"I feel terribly for anybody that goes through that. As you know, it's under investigation," Trump said. "I hope they come up with the right answer. It's a complicated subject, to be honest with you. But I feel terribly for anybody who has to go through -- and I didn't get to speak to the mother, I hear she's a fine woman. I hear from the pastor, a really fine woman. But you can see when I spoke with the pastors, I see exactly what it is and they understand where I am. And if we can help we're going to help but it is a question. It's under investigation. A lot of things happened with that and other things, frankly, that we're looking at very, very closely."
