Trump Advocates Violence Against Peaceful Protester


GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump suggested he wanted to punch a protester in the face after the guy disrupted Trump at a rally in Vegas on Monday.

"You know what I hate? There is a guy totally disruptive, throwing punches; we're not allowed to punch back anymore. I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They would be carried out in a stretcher," said Trump. 

Trump claimed the protester himself had engaged in violent behavior; however, reports of the disruption suggest there is no evidence that the man was engaging in any type of violence or resisting the police officers who escorted him out of the rally. 

This is not the first time Trump has advocated violence against protesters. After it was alleged that a member of the group "Black Lives Matter" was physically attacked by Trump supporters at a rally in November, Trump suggested that the protester deserved it. 

"Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing," Trump said following the incident.
