Multiple Trump supporters were attacked Thursday outside of President Donald Trump’s “Keep America Great” rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Video from the scene shows protesters roughing up Trump supporters, burning a pile of trademark red “Make America Great Again” hats, waving a communist flag (incorrectly identified by Schaffer as a Chinese flag) and destroying barricades put up to ensure everyone’s safety.

WARNING: The following videos contain instances of violence and profane language that some viewers may find disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

Elijah Schaffer, a correspondent for TheBlaze, posted several snippets on Twitter.

Minneapolis Star-Tribune reporter Liz Sawyer also posted about the violence she saw around her.

At one point, police used pepper spray to control the mobs of protesters, according to the Star-Tribune.

At least one Trump support was reviled as a Nazi, The Washington Post’s Jenna Johnson reported on Twitter.

A Hispanic couple wearing pro-Trump clothing, accompanied by their daughter, were the target of verbal abuse.

“He hates you,” a protester said, referring to Trump, according to the Star-Tribune.

The woman, undeterred, yelled back, “Mexicanos for Trump!”

One video showed protesters burning a pile of MAGA hats.

Earlier, Democratic Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, a Trump opponent, had proclaimed Thursday as “Love Trumps Hate Day” as a signal of his opposition to the president’s rally, The Hill reported.

The protests were unfolding as Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina appeared on the Fox News program “The Ingraham Angle.”

“It’s the most ridiculous thing I saw on TV today,” Scott said.

“Watching this situation in Minnesota just sickens my stomach.”

Scott noted that the Minneapolis violence against Trump supporters is one part of a larger picture.

“I’ve never seen such hypocrisy in all my life,” he said, pointing out that Americans are “consistently being intimidated” and forced to “cower” to the “new, socialist regime” liberals want to create.

“This approach toward anarchy continues to run amok. We cannot afford that in the greatest democracy on Earth,” he said.

    These low lifes should be taken out, period! Most are total losers in life and either still living with their parents, on welfare, or in some dead end menial job. I can understand why they are angry with everything. Look at the women involved with these losers. Fat, ugly and just dirty cunts.

    I wonder what happened to the 1/2 million dollars of security the Trump campaign paid for? Seems like this Mayor needs investigated. Did he order the police to “stand down” like Terry McAuliffe did for Charlottesville in 2017?

  • Gayle says:

    These are mt protesters, they are rioters and terrorist! The police should have been allowed to tear gas and rubber bullet them and than arrest any that did not leave! Also they should not be allowed to cover their faces! The mayor did not supply the security and must have tied the hands of the police! He should be investigated and charged for letting this happen!
