Trump then accused the media of unfairly covering demonstrations.

“The press in this country is extremely dishonest,” the billionaire said. "It’s a whole different standard when it’s a Republican conservative versus a liberal.

“We have two standards in this country, and it’s unfortunate. I don’t condone violence. I’m constantly saying to the police, ‘Don’t hurt [the protesters], don’t hurt them.’”
