Seems like Donald Trump supporters are passionate. So passionate, they literally punch people in the face.
A video surfaced Thursday of a Trump supporter punching a protester in the face at the Republican presidential frontrunner’s rally in North Carolina. The unidentified white man, who was also wearing a cowboy hat, walked down the aisle and suckered-punched an African-American protester, later identified as Rakeem Jones.
Before the fracas, Jones appeared to be waving his middle finger at the crowd on his way out. Seconds later, Jones was on the receiving end of a punch.
Jones said that the Cumberland County officers failed to protect him during the attack and detained him.
“The police jumped on me like I was the one swinging,” he told The Washington Post.
This isn’t the first time violence has broken out at a Trump event. The presidential candidate is on the record saying he would like to knock out one of the protesters during a rally held in Las Vegas last month.
