A protest outside a Donald Trump campaign rally in Albuquerque, New Mexico, turned violent late Tuesday resulting in several police officers being treated for injuries as a result of being hit by rocks.

The presumptive Republican nominee visited the most Hispanic state in America for the first time on Tuesday and the event got off to a raucous start with protesters inside holding up anti-Trump banners and resisting security officers who tried to remove them.

Outside the event, the protest evolved into a riot with thugs throwing bottles and rocks at police and setting things on fire.

Fox News reported:

Police in riot gear and mounted patrol units faced off against a violent crowd of protesters outside a Donald Trump campaign event in Albuquerque Tuesday night.

Hours after Trump and some 4,000 of his supporters left the Albuquerque Convention Center, approximately 100 demonstrators remained in downtown. Smoke grenades were used in an effort to disperse the crowd, while protesters threw rocks, plastic bottles, burning T-shirts and other items at officers.


Trump did not kowtow to those disrupting his campaign rally, telling them to “Go home to mommy.”

“How old is this kid?” he asked about one protester. “Still wearing diapers.”

Much of the mayhem was captured on camera and posted on social media… here are several videos and images of the carnage from Twitter:
