Donald Trump has laid down the gauntlet to Black Lives Matter and it looks like they are picking it up.
During a news conference Tuesday in Michigan, the 2016 Republican presidential front-runner called Democrat presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders “weak” and a “disgrace” for allowing two Black Lives Matter protesters to take his microphone from him at an event last week. He vowed that such a thing would never happen to him.
“I felt badly for him, but it showed that he’s weak,” Trump told reporters. “He’s getting the biggest crowds, and I’m getting the biggest crowds. We’re the two getting the crowds. But believe me, that’s not gonna happen to Trump.”
“I would never give up my microphone,” he added. “I thought that was disgusting. That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women. The microphone! They just took the whole place over!”
Trump even hinted that he might fight them himself if it came down to it.
“I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself, or if other people will, but that was a disgrace,” he said.
It didn’t take long for the troublemakers of the Black Lives Matter brigade to take to social media and accept the challenge.

He said he’d physically fight Black Lives Matter activists. I say bring it on if he thinks he’s that tough. http://t.co/hN0B2bhOIu
