JUST IN: Donald Trump compares police shootings to golf: "They choke just like in a golf tournament"
President Trump Monday compared police officers using excessive force inappropriately to a golfer missing a short putt, saying sometimes "they choke."

Trump, in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, argued that police are in a difficult position because they are forced to make snap decisions, often when their life may be in jeopardy. But his golf analogy prompted Ingraham to interject.

"They choke. Just like in a golf tournament, they miss a three-foot putt," Trump said.

"You're not comparing it to golf," Ingraham chimed in, suggesting the media might jump on the comparison.

"I'm saying people choke. People choke. And people are bad people. You have both. You have some bad people, and they choke," Trump added. "You could be a police officer for 15 years and all of a sudden you're confronted. You've got a quarter of a second to make a decision. If you don't make the decision, and you're wrong, you're dead. People choke under those circumstances, and they make a bad decision."

Good analogy. Makes sense to me.

You choke more if your under more pressure. Imagine being around all the criminal animals who have no intention of bettering their lives all the time. It's make you have form of PTSD.

Democrats fault for how they have treated blacks for 400 years. Black fault for voting for the original slavers, the Democrats.

Excellent analogy.

Shooting someone seven times in the back is just like missing a putt.
