Left-wing Rioters Attack Trump Supporters Leaving Minneapolis Rally (Video)

Boisterous protesters of Donald Trump packed the streets Thursday evening around Target Center in downtown Minneapolis for the president’s rally at Target Center, and the night was largely peaceful until disturbances flared in fits and starts as attendees left the arena and were confronted by agitated demonstrators.

Riot police stood by as left-wing protesters were seen dragging steel fences away from the Target Center. They were filmed by Elijah Schaffer, a correspondent for The Blaze, a conservative news site — who was maced as he filmed.

Local Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter Liz Sawyer noted there were several hundred rioters, and that some were singling out Trump supporters and surrounding them in groups before attacking them. Some also attacked police:

The protesters appeared to end up at an impasse with police at S. 6th Street and Hennepin Avenue. Officers on bicycles and horses held a line while officers marched through in riot helmets and batons. At the intersection, the tone of protesters’ ire turned away from Trump and toward the police.

So much for the tolerant left…sue the mayor and city for not providing safety at the event!
