"He tweeted his condolences to the family right after that," Kellyanne Conway said on CBS's "Face the Nation."
"I would like everybody to know about both tweets, because I think it's incredibly important for all of us to come together in a very nonpartisan fashion and express our condolences to families like the Wade family and also our outrage that things like this can happen."
Trump on Saturday faced backlash over his tweet about Nykea Aldridge, who was caught in crossfire and shot in the head and arm while leaving a school in Chicago.

"Dwayne [sic] Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!" he tweeted.

He later posted another tweet expressing his condolences to the family.
Conway on Sunday said she thinks it's important that Trump is taking his message to communities of color. 
"He expresses his condolences and he says — and he reminds everybody he's been trying to make the case that the increase in random crime and senseless murders, the poverty, the joblessness, the homelessness in some of our major cities is unacceptable to all of us," Conway said, regarding the tweets.
"The idea that certain politicians — he's not one of them — have looked the other way and have not done everything they can do to help all Americans, including our communities of color, is unacceptable to all of us."
She said people need to focus more on what Trump says regarding his policy positions and the issues facing this country.
