President Donald Trump falsely linked the Black Lives Matter movement to an anti-police chant, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," during the final presidential debate on Thursday.

Moderator Kristen Welker, who is Black, asked Trump whether his language describing Black Lives Matter as a symbol of hate contributed "to a climate of hate and racial strife."

In response, Trump brought up an anti-police chant that he and his campaign have frequently used, without context, to malign and criticize the Black Lives Matter movement, which for years has mobilized tens of thousands of largely peaceful and decentralized demonstrations for racial justice and against police brutality.
