The real estate mogul entered the ballroom roughly an hour after he was set to speak.

A large group of protesters attempted to block Trump’s motorcade from reaching the convention for his speech.

Brulte remarked: “People who don’t believe in free speech just tried to block Donald Trump from getting to his speech.” He went on to congratulate the Burlingame police department for an outstanding job. He concluded, “I don’t have a lot of friends in the SF protest movement, so we are starting late.”
