Protesters blocked traffic near a Donald Trump event in Arizona during the Trump rally on Saturday and other demonstrators marched in New York City against the Grand Old Party front-runner, CNN reported. The protesters in Arizona as shown on video materials and photographs blocked the lanes of traffic toward Fountain Hills, where Trump talked to supporters on Saturday afternoon.
On Saturday, Trump stood together with former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Maricopa Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Since Arizona borders with Mexico and it was in the focus with the controversial immigration law, understandably Trump talked about this familiar theme. “We’re going to have a real border, because we’re going to have a wall,” Trump said. “We’re going to have a big, beautiful wall that nobody is crossing, and nobody is going underneath either.”
Trump criticized President Barack Obama’s foreign policy and stated that, “unless you have a border, you don’t have a country.” Trump spoke in Tucson on Saturday, where protesters called him “Trump the racist,” and “No more hate.”
Protesters interrupted Trump, and some engaged in physical quarrels with supporters. In this video from Tucson,one supporter attacked protester at the rally.
Demonstrators gathered in Manhattan for a march from Columbus Circle to Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, where “Cosmopolitan Antifascists,” and immigrant-rights activists spoke in protection of “inclusion, diversity and human rights.” The protests at Trump rallies are getting attention after several incidents. On Friday, protesters outside a Trump rally in Salt Lake City tried to breach the doors, while last week in Chicago Tramp canceled a rally.
