Donald Trump makes a prime-time TV appearance on Fox News during #RNCinCLE

The two addressed several issues during the call, including talking about the recent police deaths in Louisiana, Ohio Gov. John Kasich's decision to forego the convention in his home state, his vice presidential pick of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and his wife Melania's speech tonight.

On the recent violence against police officers and the Black Lives Matter movement, Trump said:

"I've seen them marching down the street, essentially calling death to the police, and I think we're going to have to look into that, especially in light of what's happening with these maniacs going and shooting our police."

On John Kasich not showing up in Cleveland, Trump said:

"If I were him and gotten beaten that badly, I probably wouldn't show up either. He has a problem though. He signed a pledge. And, from a standpoint of honor, I think he should show up.

"I also think this: if this were the Democratic convention, I think he should show up because it's good for Ohio."

On what Trump expected his wife to say tonight, he said:

"Well, hopefully she's going to say she really loves her husband. And she understands me."
