An African American man disrupted a Trump Rally in Birmingham and was pushed, punched, and kicked by members of the crowd.
An Alabama man was assaulted by crowd members during a campaign rally for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump on Saturday.
The man, as reported by the Montgomery Advertiser, began to shout “black lives matter,” while wearing a shirt that read the same phrase in the middle of Trump’s speech and several rally attendees tackled the protestor to the ground in response.
Punches and kicks were aimed at the man but Birmingham Police LT. Sean Edwards told reporters that no arrests were made and the protestor did not need any medical attention.
“Get him out of here! Yeah you can get him out,” Trump said.
Security escorted the protestor from the premises and three other members of the audience were asked to leave the event following the incident.
