Leftist Activists Crash Trump Fundraiser, Attack Motorcade, Assault Trump Supporters in Violent ‘Gauntlet’


Leftist agitators viciously attacked attendees at a Donald Trump presidential campaign fundraiser in Minneapolis on Friday night.

Video shows dozens of anti-Trump activists shouting obscenities and throwing debris as they surround Donald Trump supporters attempting to exit the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Trump fundraiser attendees attempting to exit the building were forced through a gauntlet of punches, with one protester seen violently attacking an elderly man as another man and a woman caught the brunt of the brutal beating.

Some attendees attempting to leave the event were also spit on as they left the ­convention center, the Star Tribune reports.

Jaime DeLage of the St. Paul Pioneer Press captured video of Trump supporters being forced to run a “gauntlet” to get into the fundraiser.

DeLage also captured footage of protesters outside burning the American flag:

The private fundraiser Friday night marked Trump’s first visit to the state as the Republican presidential nominee.

Tickets for the fundraiser ranged from $1,000 per person to $100,000 per couple. The event was reportedly closed to the press, and Trump didn’t grant the media his usual press conference-style availability.

However, former U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, who attended the dinner did say: “People want to live, mind their own business and have a good job, and I think that’s something Donald Trump understands.”

“He’s a common-sense guy, not into political correctness,” Bachmann added. “He has turned businesses around, and that’s what he wants to do with the country.”
