OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. -- During an interview on CNN Sunday, Governor Mary Fallin said Donald Trump is "trying to campaign as a racial healer."

During the interview with Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union, Fallin defended Trump's campaign style.

"I think that has been part of his message, if you watched what he said this week. You know, he talked about how devastating this was for Dallas, how we have to respect our law enforcement and we need to pray for those who were killed and injured."
