Trump Thinks ‘Black Lives Matter’ Protester Who Was Attacked By His Supporters Deserved It

At a Donald Trump supporter rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, a black man started chanting Black Lives Matter in a video captured by CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond.

The reporter tweeted about the incident immediately:

Rally attendees circled the man while kicking and punching him as he falls to the ground.

When asked about the incident, Trump said it was well deserved and that what the black man did was “disgusting.”

So chanting protest songs is disgusting and worthy of violence according to the Donald. He continued saying (on an interview with Fox & Friends Sunday morning): “Maybe he should have been roughed up.”
