Incidents of Violence Within The Trump Campaign

Donald is totally a different type of Presidential candidate. Whether you love him or hate him he has your attention. Rumours suggest that the authorities in Cumberland County, North Carolina had considered charging him with inciting violence at his rally in Fayetteville. Donald Trump said at a rally, “If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them,I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees.”

A violent culture has developed around Donald Trump’s campaign. In North Carolina a Trump supporter punched an African American protester and threatened to kill him. In Chicago multiple fist fights occurred. This article by Slate reports the violent incidence that have occurred over the past 6 months.

The violent acts that have taken place in Chicago has caused many public figures to speak out against Donald Trump. Celebrities such as, Meek Mill, George Clooney, Kerry Washington, Miley Cyrus, Rosie O’Donnell , Michael Moore, John Oliver, Trevor Noah, Megan Kelly, Louis C.K., Eva Longoria , Shakira, Wyclef Jean, and Josh Gad have been very vocal about their disapproval of Trump’s behaviours and statements.

 Over the weekend John Legend very clearly expressed to Donald Trump Jr. that his “father is a racist.”

Several people have compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler.  Again whether you love Donald Trump or want to “Dump Trump” violent behaviour is unacceptable and needs to be stopped before someone is critically  injured or worse yet killed.
