Trump: ‘You Know How Many People Have Been Injured at Our Shows? Nobody’

‘We all want peace’

[clip starts]
TRUMP: “They’ll never do it again. It will destroy their record. They’ll have to explain to mom and dad why they have a police record and why they can’t get a job. And you know what? I’m going to start pressing charges against all these people. (Cheers and Applause) And then we won’t have a problem. (...) Mr. Trump, it’s terrible. You know how many people have been injured at our shows? Nobody. Nobody. We have protestors, some of whom are so mean, so loud, so vicious. They stop us from really our First Amendment rights, right? Freedom of speech, you can’t talk, they’re screaming — there are very few of them but they are bad. Now, you hear about a couple of — one in particular vicious, swinging. Well, guess what happened? Our people started swinging back. 90 percent of the time I’m telling the police, take it easy, don’t hurt them, just take it easy, don’t hurt them. And, you know, it’s one of those things, but we’re not provoking. We all want peace. This group — is that true or what? We don’t want trouble.” (Cheering)

TODD: “One of your supporters decided to sucker punch a protester. Do you accept any responsibility for creating this atmosphere?”
TRUMP: “I don’t accept responsibility. I do not condone violence in any shape. And I will tell you from what I saw the young man stuck his finger up in the air and the other man sort of just had it. But I still — I don’t condone violence.”
