Trump Lashes Out at ‘Thugs’ Protesting in New Mexico

Protesters at a Donald Trump campaign event Tuesday night in New Mexico were “thugs,” according to the likely Republican presidential nominee.

The Hill reported that Trump accused his critics of “flying the Mexican flag” while he spoke to supporters at the Albuquerque Convention Center. “The rally inside was big and beautiful, but outside, criminals!” he tweeted the following day.

The demonstrations became violent, as people knocked down barriers police had erected to keep them out of the venue, according to multiple news sources. Officers, who arrested just one person, shot smoke into the mob in an attempt to suppress the rioting. They said they had to dodge bottles and rocks that the angry protesters hurled at them. Several cops suffered injuries.

Some of the demonstrators managed to get into the convention center, where they interrupted Trump’s speech a number of times. “Go home to mommy,” the billionaire businessman declared as police escorted one protester out of the room. “How old is this kid? … still wearing diapers.”

Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and controversial policy proposals concerning immigration have outraged many voters, particularly in the heavily Latino New Mexico. The state’s Republican and Democratic presidential primaries are scheduled for June 7.
