Donald Trump says that drugs are playing a major role in the protests rocking Charlotte following a police shooting.

Speaking at an energy conference in Pittsburgh, the Republican nominee for president said: “if you’re not aware, drugs are a very, very big factor in what you’re watching on television.”

Trump did not elaborate. There is no evidence that drugs have anything to do with the rioting.

The comment appeared to be an aside after Trump called for a “national anti-crime agenda” to make cities safe and “to dismantle the international cartels, gangs and criminal syndicates.”

Trump vowed “to stop the drugs from flowing into our county and poisoning our youth and many other people.”
