During an event organized to fundraise for Donald Trump in Minneapolis last night, protesters showed up in full force to let it be known that they weren’t happy about their fellow residents’ support of a man they see as being a xenophobic, racist, and anti-immigration candidate. Encountering protesters is common for Trump supporters.

In the video above, it appears that some protesters are shouting and putting stickers on those exiting the convention space. One protester appears to try to physically brawl while other protesters hold them back. The Washington Examiner says that the initial demonstrations, which were organized by Minnesota Immigrants Rights Action Committee, were peaceful, but disruptors joined the crowd as the events wore on.
There were no arrests, though the Minneapolis’ Star Tribune said, “Some fundraiser attendees were pushed and jostled, spit on and verbally harassed as they left the convention center.”
