US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says initial evidence suggests the shooting of a black man by police in Wisconsin was justified.

The killing of Sylville Smith, which took place in a predominantly African-American part of Milwaukee on Saturday, led to several days of protests.

However, republican nominee Donald Trump after visiting police in the city said that the law needs to be obeyed or else, there will be no country.

Trump also said that the narrative is that, the gun was pointed at the police officer's head supposedly ready to be fired, and maybe it is not true, but added that if it is true, people should not be rioting.
