Rev. Jessie Jackson has pointed the finger at U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump and his followers for helping to creating the climate of fear in America and therefore, has contributed to the shocking deaths of five police officers in downtown Dallas.

“It’s a kind of anti-black mood, anti-semitism, anti-Muslim bashing, immigrant bashing, female bashing, a kind of mean spirited division in the country.”

Trump is fueling an “anti-black mood” in America which also saw discrimination against immigrants, Muslims and women, said Jackson.

“Threats to deport 15 million immigrants…threats to build a wall between Mexico who we share 2,000 miles of a border, there’s a permissiveness towards black people [which] is readily apparent and we have been used as scape goats for deeper and deeper economic and cultural fears.”

But it’s not just Trump, but also his supporters.

“He is a factor in that… It’s not just Trump, it’s the followers of Trump; the blacks, the browns, the Muslims – we’ve been losing rights in the cause of globalization. There is a scapegoating of those who are suffering.”
