Here’s more on the violence at today’s Trump rally in Tucson:
Bryan Sanders was wearing an American flag shirt and carrying a poster depicting Trump with a Confederate flag superimposed on his face when he was jumped.
Police quickly arrested the attacker. His identity was not immediately released.
As five police officers responded to the assault, Trump assailed the protesters.
“That’s a disgrace. Y’know, they’re taking away our First Amendment rights,” he said. “They’re troublemakers; they’re no good. We’d better be careful. We’ve got to take our country back, folks.”
In another incident, a female protester — reportedly a University of Southern California student — was punched by a man in the crowd. She was being treated by paramedics at the scene after the rally.
Another woman, 67 years old, was cited for assaulting a TPD officer, after she poked him in the chest while trying to explain how she was injured by a Trump supporter, who she said pushed her against the railing and kicked her.
