Trump: ‘Professional Con Man’ Sharpton Has ‘Gotten Away with a Lot of Murder’

Donald Trump said Monday morning that MSNBC host Al Sharpton “has gotten away with a lot of murder” — referring to the brutal execution-style murder of two NYPD officers over the weekend.

“He is a guy who, I don’t believe really believes what he is saying,” Trump said on Fox & Friends. “Some people would call him a con man … He’s gotten away with a lot of murder, he probably makes a decent living, he doesn’t pay taxes. If you didn’t pay your taxes you’d be going to jail for a long time. But for some reason he’s out on the streets preaching.”

Trump wouldn’t say whether he thinks Sharpton has “blood on his hands.” But, responding to Sharpton’s claims that he is receiving death threats, Trump said he isn’t worried about it because Sharpton “has a way of turning things around” because he’s “a professional con man.”
