Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump cautioned his supporters Wednesday night not to hurt a protester being removed from the event after a string of violent run-ins at his campaign events.
In video of the Long Island, New York event posted online, Trump’s speech was interrupted by an apparent disturbance in the crowd.
Trump paused to ask the crowd, “You want him out?”
“Get ’em out,” Trump said, pausing to stroll around the stage as the crowd murmured and chanted “Trump, Trump, Trump!”
“Don’t hurt the person, don’t hurt the person, do not hurt the person, don’t hurt em, don’t hurt em,” Trump said as a man with a red, white, and blue cowboy hat was removed, according to WABC. “Isn’t a Trump rally the greatest?”
The network reported there were two arrests at the rally after the event was interrupted multiple times by protesters.
Trump’s campaign events have often been marred by clashes between anti-Trump protesters and the billionaire’s supporters. Last month, a 78-year-old North Carolina man was charged with assault and battery for allegedly sucker-punching a black protester being escorted out of a rally.
