JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

More than 10 female protesters interrupted the first 30 minutes of Donald Trump’s Monday speech on economic policy.

The GOP nominee didn’t get more than a few minutes into his Monday speech at the Detroit Economic Club before shouting broke out:

“It’s very well planned out,” Trump said, as one female protestor was escorted out.

“I will say the Bernie Sanders people had far more energy and spirit,” he added, when another disrupted his address less than five minutes later, and didn’t acknowledge further interruptions.

The Michigan Peoples Campaign later issued a statement claiming responsibility for coordinating the protests in order to challenge Trump’s positions on sexual harassment and auto jobs.
