Donald Trump’s popularity is continuing to rise, but so are the rioters surrounding his rallies. This latest riot in San Diego finally had some justice as police offers were able to do this amazing thing.
Republican presumed nominee Donald Trump held a rally on Friday in San Diego and 1,000 people gathered outside in protest. Around 4:30 p.m. police declared the gathering unlawful and clicked into action.
The illegality of the protest was due to rioters causing fights and throwing bottles. Police stepped in to handle the crowd, making at least 35 arrests.
Officers arrived in riot gear and pushed the rioters away from the city’s downtown, but that didn’t stop the crowd from starting fights not only with Trump supporters but also with police. The physical confrontations spilled out into the downtown streets of San Diego, a city known for left-wing elements.

Officers at one point used pepper spray to keep the rioters at bay. While one video shows a protester grab for an officer’s gun.
With the June 7 California primary just around the corner, these protests are becoming larger and more violent. Finally, police were able to declare this kind of mass gathering illegal and were able to make arrests.

The Trump campaign commended police efforts for stopping the crazed crowd. Saying that the San Diego police did, “a fantastic job on handling the thugs who tried to disrupt our very peaceful and well attended rally.”
This is amazing. Police are now able to see these leftist extremists for what they are… criminals and they were not told to stand down. Instead they were given the go ahead to make arrests and declare this situation and many like it unlawful and illegal.
The San Diego Police Department deserves a lot of respect for this bold act.
