Secret Service Agents Jump Into Action To Protect Donald Trump Against Protesters
At his first rally since being forced to cancel his rally in Chicago on Friday night due to escalating violence, Donald Trump had another altercation with protesters. While giving a speech in Dayton Ohio, protesters rushed the stage prompting four Secret Service agents to jump into action to protect Trump. The dramatic scene was actually forewarned by someone in the crowd moments earlier, and Trump thanked them after the situation was secure.
The suspect has been identified as 22-year-old Thomas Dimassimo, and was charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic — both misdemeanors, Chief Mike Etter of the Dayton Airport Police Department told NBC News.
On Saturday, Trump lashed out at protesters who shut down his rally the day before in Chicago. The leading GOP presidential candidate said Friday night’s event was “a planned attack” that was “professionally done.” There were hundreds of protesters that forced their way into the University of Illinois at Chicago venue for the rally, prompting the campaign to call off the event.
“We’re all together and we want to get along with everybody, but when they have organized, professionally staged wise guys we’ve got to fight back, we’ve got to fight back,” Trump said at a speech in Dayton, Ohio on Saturday.
“They want me to tell my people please be nice be nice. My people are nice,” Trump defended his supporters. “They were taunted, they were harassed by these other people.”
