Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump isn’t taking any more gruff from demonstrators at his political events — he’s dealing with them swiftly, as are his supporters.
At a Birmingham, Alabama rally Saturday, a protester removed his sweatshirt to reveal a t-shirt underneath that said “Black Lives Matter,” and disrupted the event by shouting the same.
Here’s a clip of the protester.
“Get him the hell out of here will you please,” the candidate said to cheers.
Fox News host Greta Van Susteren tweeted:

And attendees pulled out their cell phones and tweeted footage taken from different vantage points.

CNN described the scene like this:
At least a half-dozen attendees shoved and tackled the protester, a black man, to the ground as he refused to leave the event. At least one man punched the protester and a woman kicked him while he was on the ground.
All of the attendees who were involved in the physical altercation with the protester were white.
The protester appeared to be shouting “black lives matter” and later removed his sweatshirt to reveal a shirt with those words.
Attendees offered more play-by-play.

While the protester was being ejected, Trump brought up the incident in Washington state when two Black Lives Matter protesters completely took over a Bernie Sanders speech.
“I promise you, that’s not going to happen with me,” he said.
