Trump Condones Roughing Up Protester
Trump instructed security to eject a Black Lives Matter protester from a campaign event in Birmingham, Alabama.
“Get him the hell out of here, will you please?” Trump asked. “Get him out of here. Throw him out!”
The protester was shoved by the police out of the venue and heckled by Trump supporters, who shouted, “Get the fuck out of here, man,” and “Tase him!”
Following the altercation, Trump went on Fox News and said:
Maybe [the protester] should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.
Comments like these add to the growing evidence that Donald Trump supports and condones violence against people with different ideas.
