Clinton postpones visit to Charlotte after mayor's request

But it appears that Clinton has jumped ahead of Trump's plans, interrupting four planned days of rest and debate preparations at home.

"We really appreciate their support".

Friday morning, Clinton called for the release of police video involving the fatal shooting of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officer Brentley Vinson.

Jennifer Palmieri, Clinton's campaign communications director, said in a statement that after "further discussion with community leaders" Clinton had made a decision to postpone the trip "as to not impact the city's resources".

"We've often heard from the families of those killed, urging people with concerns to express those concerns peacefully, and not condone the cycle of violence.The president on a number of occasions has talked about how the Constitutional right of citizens to protest is an integral part of our democracy".

"If there would be a way to delay these visits in terms of giving us a chance to get our city back to order and back to more of a state of normalcy, that would probably be ideal", she said.

Clinton is calling on the city of Charlotte to publicly release the police video from the Scott shooting. "In the meantime her prayers are with the people of Charlotte during these hard days", she said.

Messages left with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's campaigns seeking response were not immediately returned.

Earlier in the day, the campaign said Clinton would visit the city on Sunday after the police shooting of an African-American man triggered days of unrest.

The GOP presidential candidate's camp says he was considering a trip to Charlotte next week.

Also late Friday, two Trump campaign officials said they were no longer planning a post-debate trip next week to the city. Amid increased pressure to do so, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department has not yet released dashcam footage of the shooting. "We must ensure justice and work to bridge divides", Clinton said in a tweet.
