Trump’s Crowd Turns on Muslim Woman Kicked Out of Rally

One of the many protesters that police removed from a recent Donald Trump campaign event was a Muslim woman, according to the Daily Mail.

Rose Hamid, a 56-year-old flight attendant, sat in the crowd during the first part of Friday night’s rally in South Carolina. When the Republican presidential front-runner accused Syrian refugees of supporting ISIS, she stood in silent protest. Officers evicted her from the building as some audience members jeered, prompting Trump to declare: “There is hatred against us that is unbelievable. It’s their hatred; it’s not our hatred.”

A man reportedly screamed at Hamid: “You have a bomb, you have a bomb!” A woman yelled “get out.” Hamid tried to calm the fears of the billionaire’s fans by wearing a shirt with the message “Salom I Come in Peace.” She also donned a hijab, the traditional headscarf for Muslim women.

“I figured that most Trump supporters probably never met a Muslim, so I figured that I’d give them the opportunity to meet one,” Hamid told CNN before the rally. “I really don’t plan to say anything. I don’t want to be disrespectful, but if he says something that I feel needs answering I might. We’ll just see what strikes me.”

Hamid reported that people sitting near her “were very sweet” at the beginning, but “the ugliness really came out fast” when she stood. “That’s really scary,” she said.
