President Trump has weighed in on a stunning video of a 75-year-old protester who was seriously injured after being shoved by police officers in Buffalo, New York, last week, questioning whether it was a “set up.”
Video of the demonstration Thursday showed a row of officers walking toward the man and two pushing him. His head bled onto the sidewalk as officers walked past him, some looking down at him.
Trump claimed in his tweet that the man, Martin Gugino, “fell harder than he was pushed.”
CNN has reported 57 police officers in Buffalo have resigned from the force's emergency response team following the suspension of two officers.
An investigation is underway, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo called the incident "wholly unjustified and utterly disgraceful."
