Donald Trump says the protesters who oppose him are lucky his supporters stay peaceful.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee said in a series of tweets Saturday morning that many of those interrupting his recent events are illegal immigrants who disrespect the U.S.
The Mayor of San Jose did a terrible job of ordering the protection of innocent people. The thugs were lucky supporters remained peaceful!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2016
Many of the thugs that attacked the peaceful Trump supporters in San Jose were illegals. They burned the American flag and laughed at police— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2016
Anti-Trump demonstrations in San Jose, Calif. turned destructive late Thursday, with several violent events surrounding the billionaire’s visit.
Some protesters were witnessed torching one of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats, while others set a U.S. flag on fire. Activists also waved Mexican flags, and there were several physical clashes between Trump’s fans and foes.
I'll tell you, US society, valuing civility as it has shown, will not only discount this kind of activism as having any sincerity of intention, but will regard this rowdy display as vulgar, foriegn, and undesirable (as in the catalyst of unregulated immigration policy being undesirable). Are these the outcomes progressive leaders expected in their panicked desperation? IMO
Trump people are peaceful for now but if he is cheated out of the Presidency all bets are off. Expect the protest at Trump rallies to get worse as we get closer to the election. we may be forced to defend ourselves. I hope it does not come to this point as that is exactly what the paid protesters want. They want us dragged down to their level.
Trump supporters will eventually have to fight back, "In Defense" and the hitlery/commie/bs/oblamea/regime supporters will continue to goad us until we beat them all into the pulp!
Rocky, I hope what you are saying does not happen, but I cannot discount what you foresee. Really!
While there is no reason for violence at rally's, it is DISCONCERTING to see trump make the veiled threat against any future trouble. Of COURSE in his own mind he's innocent and pure as the wind driven snow. But in MANY instances he promotes violence from the "pulpit" in saying "I'd love to punch him in his face."
Exactly WHAT should come from this? The supposed leader condoning violence then the other side will automatically revert to violence as to THEIR response to these words. Roger Stone promising a summer of rage, Lewandowski involved in the Michelle Fields fiasco and other suggestions from him will make rioting and violent protests commonplace. The "Ferguson Effect" is STRONGLY on police officers now and to suggest additional violence is objectively moronic.
I can NEVER support this person and do NOT tell me I support hrc. I just can NOT support this narcissist for ONE moment.
Bob, your personal concerns are merited, as others are too. What support can you see making this election cycle, that actually can yield benefit. The Nation needs it now.
In my opinion I do not see trump as any solution. His past is laden with strong democrat progressive policies. Because he CLAIMS to have changed, there is absolutely NO change in his actions. WAY too often after he makes a "claim," the next day it's recounted and changed and then his minions see nothing wrong with this. He is the ultimate RINO and I've been led to believe this has been the "proper solution" since 1978.
Well, no more. Will NOT vote for another RINO progressive again.
trump's evil enough for me.
