In a later tweet Walsh explained, "I wasn't calling for violence, against Obama or anyone".
In other tweets, Walsh blamed Obama for the violence. "Watch out Obama. Watch out black lives matter punks", Walsh wrote in a since deleted tweet.

He also said that liberals "did this" and that the media "fans the meme of bad, racist Cops".
Their statements were in line with the condemnation of the attacks from President Obama, who issued a presidential proclamation on Friday ordering flags to be flown at half-mast until Tuesday in remembrance of the dead.
"Of course I didn't mean, 'Let's go kill Obama and Black Lives Matter.' I was not trying to incite violence against Obama and Black Lives Matter", he said.
The comments marked the third time in as many days that Obama has spoken, from a distance, about the police-involved fatal shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota that were followed by a sniper attack in Dallas that killed five police officers.

But the campaign between two candidates who plumb historic depths in personal approval ratings promises to leave the next president with a disunited and disgruntled nation.
However, that didn't stop him from targeting the President and protesters in a series of hateful tweets spewed over four hours.
"This isn't a matter of us comparing the value of lives, this is recognizing that there is a particular burden being placed on a group of our fellow citizens", he said.
Most likely due to immediate and angry backlash from his followers and those around the world who read the controversial tweet.
"I believe that I speak for every single American when I say that we are horrified over these events, and that we stand united with the people and the police department in Dallas", Obama said. She proposed national guidelines for the use of force by officers and asked white Americans to put themselves in the shoes of African Americans. Time to defend our Cops. He argued that the U.S.is, in reality, "not as divided as some have suggested", saying people of all races and backgrounds are outraged by attacks on police and about the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
