Are all of Donald Trump’s supporters violent thugs, or just the ones who show up at his rallies?
Upon seeing a fight break out among his followers and a Black Lives Matter protester, Trump didn’t exhort people to calm down. Instead, he invited his supporters to ramp up their violent attack on the black man, saying, “Yeah, get him out! Get him the hell out of here!”
This happened at a Trump rally in Birmingham, Alabama, a city with a history of racial violence.
This is not the first instance of altercations at Trump’s events.
During one rally in Richmond, Virginia, a Trump follower spit on a Latino protester, and one woman threw a punch.
Watch video of the altercation – and Trump’s supporters continuing to push and shove the man as he’s being taken out:
