San Jose Major Sam Liccardo blamed presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump for the violent protesters outside of the real estate mogul’s rally last Thursday night that resulted in injuries.
“At some point, Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign,” Liccardo, a Democrat and Clinton backer, stated.
Police condemned the violence.
“I’m disgusted by the violent attacks yesterday that have no place in our society or our political process,” stated the president of San Jose Police Officers’ Association Paul Kelly.
The scene outside the rally was so chaotic that Bernie Sanders supporters were caught on video fighting other Sanders supporters because they thought each other were Trump backers.
“In the video, which was uploaded to YouTube Friday, rowdy protesters are seen getting more violent with each other, thinking the others were Trump supporters,” the Daily Caller reports; “Towards the end of the one-minute video, the crowd begins to chant “Bernie! Bernie!”
