Donald Trump says he is "the law-and-order candidate" while calling for the end of violence against the nation's police officers.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, also declared himself "the candidate of compassion" during a speech about veterans issues Monday in Virginia. He said that he would support the police while also fighting crime in the nation's inner cities.

He says that police and law enforcement are "what separates civilization from total chaos and the destruction of our country as we know it."

Trump spoke after five police officers were murdered in Dallas last week. Trump vowed that he would "protect all Americans" and said the recent deaths of black men at the hands of police officers in Minnesota and Louisiana shows that "a lot of work is needed."
