Donald Trump cast “inner cities” as war zones in Monday night’s presidential debate, saying African-Americans and Hispanics are “living in hell.”

{mosads}“We have a situation where we have our inner cities — African-Americans and Hispanics are living in hell because it’s so dangerous,” Trump said. “You walk down the street, you get shot.”

Touting his endorsements from police unions, the GOP nominee said he’s the “law and order” candidate and linked President Obama to the violence in his hometown of Chicago.

“We have to protect our inner cities because African-American communities are being decimated by crime,” Trump said.

Clinton accused Trump of “painting such a dire picture of black communities,” provoking a loud sigh from Trump.

“There are black churches and businesses that employ so many people and provide opportunities, and so many families working to provide for their kids,” Clinton said. “There’s a lot we should be proud of.”
