Trump On ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protester: ‘Maybe He Should Have Been Roughed Up’

Saturday in Birmingham, AL, at a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, audience members and a protester wearing a “Black Lives Matter” shirt pushed and shoved each other when the protester started screaming.

On “Fox News Sunday” this morning, Trump said, “I will tell you the man that — I don’t know— you say was he roughed up, he was so obnoxious and so loud. He was screaming. I had 10,000 people in the room yesterday, 10,000 — and this guy starts screaming by himself. I don’t know roughed up? Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”

He added, I have a lot of fans and they were not happy about it. This was a very obnoxious guy who was a trouble maker looking to make trouble.”
