Raleigh gets Trumped
Last Friday, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made an appearance in Raleigh, North Carolina to promote his campaign. However, Trump was met with substantial opposition during the night. Trump even ended the rally early, cutting short Q&A time when he unexpectedly left the stage.
During the event, he brought up the increasingly controversial issue of Syrian immigration. Reportedly he stated that undocumented workers are treated better than American veterans. Trump did not go into detail when discussing his plans and strategies regarding the issue. "If I win, they gotta go back. They have got to go back," said Trump.
Later on he discussed the terrorist attacks in San Bernardino and France. “I would handle it so tough, you have no idea. You don't even want to hear it.”
Trump told the audience that he didn't believe that the sister of the San Bernardino gunman is innocent and would pursue her to find out if she has a similar agenda like her brother. He even went as far to say he would have gone after the families of the 9/11 attackers, meanwhile slighting the way the government handled the tragedy.
Trump has offended several groups with his political statements over the past few months, including but not up to immigrants and refugees, Muslims, Latinos, same sex marriage activists, women, the disabled, anyone who disagrees with him, and propagators of Black Lives Matter.
Ten separate groups of protesters were forcibly removed from the event after disrupting his speech in some way. Approximately fifty other protesters were outside picketing. All in all, Trump’s Raleigh rally was the most interrupted political event he has held to date.
