The protestor was put in a headlock by the supporter, who also had a Human Rights Campaign sticker on his ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball cap and carrying a Pride flag. The protestor was waving an American flag upside down in front of the Republican nominee when Trump pointed to him and told him to “get out!”
The crowd shouted at the man with two men shoving him and the third, sporting a ‘Gays for Trump’ shirt grabbed the protestor to put him on a headlock.
The police officer help to stop the fight and took the protestor away follooing the crowd’s chants. Trump did not denounce the violence, rather he spoke against the protestors actions.
“It’s really total disrespect for the American flag. There he is, look (pointing at protestor). That’s what’s happening to our country. That is total disrespect for our flag. We’re going to turn it around, folks. We’re going to turn it around.” Greensboro Police Department spokeswoman Susan Danielsen said to CNN: “There was a minor altercation associated with the Trump rally. Officers escorted both parties involved outside of the venue. Neither one wanted to press charges, so no arrests were made”
