A group of eight protesters angry with Donald Trump for opposing illegal immigration interrupted his speech Wednesday on Capitol Hill, shouting ‘Hey hey! Ho ho! Donald Trump has got to go!’ during a rally expressing opposition to the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran.
At one point, the crowd erupted in boos as a small group of immigration activists waived signs and began to heckle the candidate.
“That’s alright,” Trump says as the boos subsided. “That’s why we have freedom of speech,” he said.
At least one Trump supporter was not as understanding, as the media covering the event alleged cursing and spitting on one protester.
After praising the First Amendment, Trump turned on the media. “I’ll tell you how dishonest the press is,” he said. “We have thousands of people in the room … and we have about 10 people over there. They’ll get the headline. You won’t. That’s pretty disgusting but that’s the way it goes.”
