Commenting on his Thursday night’s rally in San Jose, he also criticized small group of “thugs” for their alleged action of burning American flag.
In two different posting on Twitter, he wrote, “Rally last night in San Jose was great. Tremendous love and enthusiasm … Outside, small group of thugs burned (American) flag! … My supporters are far tougher if they want to be, but fortunately they are not hostile.”
Trump argued that everyone should be given the right to express his/her views and that there is no room for a politics that fails to listen to the other side. He stressed that people with better arguments could persuade people without turning violent.
Hundreds of protestors insulted Trump’s supporters as they were leaving the event. At least one supporter was hit with an egg, while many people were punched.
Violent clashes between Trump’s supporters and opponents have erupted outside a number of rallies in the past few weeks. The Republican presumptive presidential nominee has angered many across the nation with his rhetoric against Hispanics, Mexicans and Muslims.
