Donald Trump says he is upset that he wasn’t interviewed with by Florida police in the aftermath of the incident that led to his campaign manager being charged with simple battery.

Trump, in an interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity to air Tuesday night, said he thought it was ‘‘very unjust’’ that ‘‘nobody’’ from law enforcement called him after the early March incident.
