Reacting to news that Mosby would drop all charges against the three remaining police officers facing trial in the death of Freddie Gray, Trump called Mosby a "disgrace" and said "she should prosecute herself, she should be held accountable." He made the comments during a news conference in Florida in which he commented on a wide-range of issues including the recent email hack of the Democratic Party. Prosecutors in Baltimore on Wednesday ended their effort to prosecute the police officers involved in the death of Gray after failing to secure convictions in four earlier trials. The decision to drop charges against the three remaining officers facing trial came on the day of a pretrial hearing for Officer Garrett Miller, whose trial was set to start on Thursday in Baltimore City Circuit Court. Prosecutor Marilyn Mosby had stunned the city by filing charges against six officers just days after Gray's death of a broken neck suffered in a police van sparked protests and rioting in April 2015. The death of the 25-year-old was one in a series of high-profile deaths of black suspects at the hands of U.S. police that stoked a national debate on police tactics and the treatment of minorities.
