Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Tuesday he would never allow Black activists to take over his event, vowing to “fight off” anyone who dares to try if the situation called for it.
Trump was reacting to a question from a reporter about a Bernie Sanders event that was hijacked over the weekend by Black Lives Matter activists.
“That was a disgrace,” Trump said at a press conference before a speech in Michigan on Tuesday, vowing it wouldn’t happen to him.
Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, allowed two women to take the microphone and take over the rally.

Sanders would end up leaving the rally after being unable to regain control of the stage.
The real estate tycoon said it was “disgusting” how Sanders handled the situation.
“The way he was taken away by two young women. The microphone, they just took the whole place over. And the audience, which liked him … they’re saying what’s going on, how can this happen?” Trump said.
“That will never happen with me! I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or other people will, but that was a disgrace. I felt badly for him. But it showed that he was weak,” he said. “Believe me, that’s not going to happen to Trump.”
Black activists were livid on Twitter in the moments following The Donald’s challenging remarks, and threatened to take him on…

Nothing would please The Donald more.
Because if the #BLM goons try to storm his rallies, they will be put down by his bodyguards. Black activists will go nuts — and White voters, including Democrats, will rally to his side.
Once again, Trump is crazy…like a fox.
