Donald Trump: Far Left Protesters Are Violating Our First Amendment Rights
Donald Trump went on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday. Stephanopoulos attacked Trump for the “violence” at his rallies – that is ALL due to far left agitators.
Trump tried to explain to the former Clinton adviser that the far left trained protesters are violating his supporters First Amendment rights.
This message is played at EVERY Trump rally:
‘This is a private event paid for by Mr. Trump… Please do not harm or touch the protester. This is a peaceful rally.’
This message is played at every rally but far left rioters don’t follow the rules.
They only attend the rallies to disrupt the event and abuse Trump supporters.
“These people are very disruptive,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday. “These are not innocent lambs.”
The Republican frontrunner said the demonstrators who shut down an Arizona highway leading to the Phoenix suburb where he was scheduled to speak were violating his right to free speech — and the rights of his supporters to come hear him.
“They’re really stopping our First Amendment rights,” Trump said. “If you think about it, George, they block … they blocked a road, they put their cars in front of a road. We had thousands and thousands of people wanting to come. They were delayed for an hour because of these protesters.”
Trump continued: “These are professional agitators, and I think that somebody should say that when a road is blocked going into the event so that people have to wait sometimes hours to get in, I think that’s very [unfair] and there should be blame there, too.”
He added: “I think it’s very unfair that these, really, in many cases professional, in many cases sick protesters can put cars in a road blocking thousands of great Americans from coming to a speech and nobody says anything about that.”
