Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden called the shooting of two sheriff’s deputies in Los Angeles “unconscionable” while President Trump called for a “fast trial” with the possibility of the death penalty on Sunday. …

Trump first responded to the ambush-style shooting early Sunday morning.

“Animals that must be hit hard!” Trump wrote, referring to criminals who target law enforcement.

“If [the deputies] die, fast trial death penalty for the killer. Only way to stop this!” Trump later wrote.
