Now, the left-wing demonstrators have come to California. When the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, campaigned in San Diego, violence erupted outside the convention center. This isn’t the first time it happened at Trump’s rally.
Although the gathering started peacefully, soon the problems began. The protesters attempted to climb the fence and also threw items at the police. As CCBS News report, about three dozen people were arrested. The fights also broke out between the demonstrators and Trump supporters.
Last month, the anti-Trump camp burned an effigy of the candidate as well as an American flag. Why they burned the flag isn’t known.
“Honestly, folks, we have leadership right now in this country, especially at the top, that is grossly incompetent. They don’t know what the hell they’re doing,” Trump claimed during the rally.
While there, Donald Trump repeated his pledge to build a wall on the Mexican border. He also wants to deport millions of illegal immigrants. Among them are Mexicans, many of whom compose a large minority in California.
He also wants a ban on Muslims coming to America until things are “figured out.” In that comment, Trump referred to risks Muslim migrants could pose. Many find it xenophobic, but many Americans still remember 9/11 as well as other terrorist attacks on the American soil, or those involving Americans abroad.
It is expected that Trump’s rallies will continue to draw crowds, including the troublemakers.
