Donald Trump slammed Baltimore State Attorney Marilyn Mosby for prosecuting the Baltimore police officers involved in the Freddie Gray case, arguing that she should “prosecute herself.”

During a press conference in Doral, Florida, Trump was asked if he had a “reaction” to the news that all of the charges were dropped for the three remaining Baltimore police officers who were involved in the Freddie Gray case.

Trump said, “I do have a reaction to the prosecutor in Baltimore who indicted those police officers, I do. I think she ought to prosecute herself. Okay, that’s my reaction.”

“I think it was disgraceful what she did, and the way she did it and the news conference that she had where they were guilty before anybody even knew the facts.”

“And I give a lot of respect and a lot of credit to those police officers who probably could have made a deal. I give a lot of respect, a lot of credit that they stuck it out,” Trump said. “And you had victory after victory after victory, and she had no chance. Don’t forget she prosecuted the best case, what she thought was her best cases first. She should prosecute herself. She should be held accountable.”

“Well, what do you say to African-Americans who feel like this was kind of a railroad case. Freddie Gray has become a cause celebre,” a reporter asked.

“Well, that was a bad case to prove it. That was a bad case. I mean if you’re going to do that, it’s okay… there are times when police officers behave very badly, but you have to get the right time. This was not one of those times. And I think that she is a disgrace to the world of prosecutors for what she did.”
