Trump Reacts to ‘Nasty’ Protester: ‘I’d Like to Punch Him in the Face’

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, confronted Monday night by a protester during a campaign rally, told his audience that he wanted to beat up the man.

As he watched security personnel remove the demonstrator from the building, the New York City billionaire declared: “I’d like to punch him in the face. He’s smiling, having a good time. … In the old days, (protesters would be) carried out on stretchers. We’re not allowed to push back anymore.”

Trump called the man “nasty as hell,” and alleged that he was attempting to assault the officers. CNN reported that the protester “did not appear” to be acting violently.

The television network noted that during his speech, Trump also blasted one of his Republican opponents. He called Ted Cruz “sick.” The Texas senator is under fire for some of the tactics his campaign and supporters have employed. He fired his top spokesman Monday for retweeting a false accusation aimed at candidate Marco Rubio.

The field of Republican White House hopefuls could shrink after next week’s “Super Tuesday,” when GOP voters in 11 states head to the polls. Trump leads in the polls in most of the locations. The candidates most in danger of being forced to drop out of the race are Ohio Gov. John Kasich and retired pediatric brain surgeon Ben Carson.
