An elderly Trump supporter was assaulted and pushed to the ground at an anti-Trump protest this Tuesday in London.
Video of the incident shows a mob of problem, some of whom are holding anti-Trump signs, grabbing hold of the white-haired man and then pushing him until he falls to the ground. The man can be heard saying “get off” several times as he is pushed to the ground.
As they are pushing the elderly man to the ground, several of the anti- Trump protestors are chanting along with “Donald Trump is not welcome here.”
After the old man is pushed to the ground, several people come to his aid and help him up and ask if he is ok. One woman says to the assaulters, “If you act like that, you act like Donald Trump, so don’t.”
The rally where this assault took place was in Parliament Square. Britain’s left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a speech to the crowd where he attacked President Donald Trump multiple times.
Corbyn went after the “hatreds that are being fueled by the far-right in politics in Britain, in Europe and the United States.”
The protests come as Donald Trump is visiting the United Kingdom. Trump previously said the media has made the protests seem bigger than they are. He previously said he saw “thousands of people in the streets cheering” waving United States flags during his visit. He said he saw “very, very few protestors” and that the media making them seem bigger than they are is “fake news.”
“I kept hearing that there would be ‘massive’ rallies against me in the UK, but it was quite the opposite. The big crowds, which the Corrupt Media hates to show, were those that gathered in support of the USA and me. They were big & enthusiastic as opposed to the organized flops!” tweeted the president on Wednesday.
Whatever the size of the protesting crowds, violence and intimidation seen to be becoming more and more commonplace at anti-Trump protests everywhere. On top of the elderly man being assaulted, The Telegraph also reported that a Trump supporter was surrounded by protesters yelling, “Nazi scum!” to his face. At one point, a milkshake was reportedly thrown at the Trump’s supporter’s head. As the crowd cheered, the man threw the milkshake back into the protestors.
This incident also took place in Parliament Square on Tuesday.
Things reportedly got so unsafe Trump supporters at one point at the rally that London police reportedly had to barricade 20 of them inside of a pub to keep them from protestors.
London police told The Independent on Tuesday that there was “a melee between opposing political groups.” They added that the rally turned to “chaos.”
They said the 20 Trump supporters were locked in the Lord Moon of the Mall pub after a “verbal disagreement” with protestors who were chanting to keep “Nazi scum off our streets.” A dozen officers had to guard the entrance to the pub from demonstrators.
