After clashes between protesters and supporters of the presumptive GOP nominee left people beaten and bloodied in the streets of San Jose, California, Donald Trump on Friday morning blamed the chaos on a “small group of thugs.”
Rally last night in San Jose was great. Tremendous love and enthusiasm in the hall. Big crowd. Outside, small group of thugs burned Am flag!

Photos and videos of the Thursday evening event show a Trump supporter who was egged, rally attendees getting punched in the face, and protesters burning the campaign’s signature Make America Great Again hats.
