Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton continue to make appeals to African-American voters as the November presidential election inches closer.

In speeches yesterday, Trump, in Ohio, and Clinton, in Florida, weighed in on the police killings of black men. Both decried this week's shootings in Tulsa and Charlotte.

Trump's comments are getting some criticism — they came on the same day he proposed reinstating the controversial police tactic "stop and frisk."

Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti shares excerpts and analysis of the candidates' speeches.

This segment aired on September 22, 2016.
