Trump Fails at First Amendment Protections From Protesters
Trump incorrectly claimed that protesters who forced The Donald to cancel a rally in Chicago violated his right to free speech.
The organized group of people, many of them thugs, who shut down our First Amendment rights in Chicago, have totally energized America!

Freedom of speech without government interference is a fundamental right protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. The protesters aren’t agents of the government, therefore, there was no constitutional violation.
The continued lack of knowledge of our government and the Consititution by Trump clearly shows he is not fit for the Presidency.
