Protesters were forcibly removed by hotel security Friday at a Republican fundraiser in New York City where presidential candidate Donald Trump was delivering a luncheon keynote.

The fundraiser, held at the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan, was sponsored by Commonwealth Club to benefit the Republican State Committee of Pennsylvania.

The Associated Press reported that four protesters crashed the event chanting: “Trump is trying to bring us down, target people black and brown.”

Nine other people paid to attend the $1,000-a-plate luncheon and stood up to make loud statements during Trump’s speech, according to the report.

You can hear protesters chanting in this video taken by a reporter from The Patriot-News newspaper:
