WATCH: Trump Supporters Grab At Anti-Trump Protesters At Donald Trump Rally In Cedar Rapids, Iowa

A group of protesters were escorted out by security at President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa Wednesday.

While the protesters were walking out, a man in the crowd supporting Trump grabbed an anti-Trump protester while another female Trump supporter continued to scream in her face. The anti-Trump protester continued to blow a whistle in the supporters faces while being escorted out by security.

Some in the group were wearing Indivisible Iowa shirts, and Indivisible Iowa was also responsible for organizing a protest event for the rally on Facebook. This group’s main mission is “resisting the Republican congressional and executive agenda through organization and direct action,” as seen on their website.

Even though the majority of Iowa voters voted for Trump in the 2016 election, the president holding his rally in Cedar Rapids was expected to be tense as the majority of voters in this county voted for the president’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Co-sponsoring the protest were other Iowa based groups like Americans for Democratic Action Iowa and Progress Iowa along with national organizations like Planned Parenthood and Women’s March.

Before the president’s rally on Wednesday the White House scheduled Trump to visit Kirkwood Community College to discuss advancements in high-tech agriculture.

Trump was accompanied by Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, and the three toured the community college’s agriculture program. Kirkwood Community College is the largest two-year agriculture program in the country, so the president and two secretaries took a look at the school’s high-tech equipment to learn about technological and management practices when it comes to farming.

This is part of the president’s administration marking “technology week.”

This is President Trump’s first trip to Iowa as president and the second for Perdue as the head of the USDA. Last month Perdue came to Boone, Iowa delivering his first major farm policy address as Agriculture Secretary.

” a man in the crowd supporting Trump grabbed an anti-Trump protester”

Nope. I just watched in high def and 0.25 speed. The man never touched her. The protester was the first to make physical contact by swatting his arm @7seconds.
Later in the video, he made another reach for her, but never touched her.

JOHN MAYOR...

John Mayor were YOU there blowing whistles? ??? I ask cause I know how you like to B-L-O-W things. BTW Jesus is laughing at YOU.

JOHN MAYOR...

Isaiah 53 states:…
.
3) He (Jesus!) was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face. He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. 4) Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. [NASB]

I hold nothing against those who protest Trump, and certainly wouldn’t defend any Trump supporter if they physically assaulted that woman. I know that you aren’t an American citizen, JOHN MAYOR… so maybe you’re not able to access the video to see it for yourself. If you could, then you’d have to agree with me that he never touches her.
–> At full-screen, 0.25 speed, and High-definition — While he does reach for the whistle, she’s too quick to bat his hand away, and therefore, she is the first to make physical contact at 7seconds. At 11-12seconds, he simply holds his hand in the air without touching her.

@Gabriela Milian – To get that freeze-frame for your article’s photo, and the title screenshot for your video with the title “Protester Grabbed” (a misrepresentation), you have to know the truth, because that moment is the end of the motion where the protester has just slapped the hand of the Trump supporter away. He never touched her, and you’d had to see this when you slowed everything down for that freeze-frame.

Why would you sacrifice your journalistic integrity like that?

JOHN MAYOR...

Did you know (or care to know!)… OH LUCID ONE!… that ATTEMPTED MURDER is an INDICTABLE OFFENSE? And so… if you take a swing at me in a church, do you think an Officer of the Law should set you free BECAUSE YOU MISSED? Frankly!… I think you should apologize to the author of this blog!

JOHN, frankly, we the readers of Heavy.com think your parents should apologize.

JOHN MAYOR → JERK (A.K.A., FAKE JOHN!)...

You should reword that to, “… we the PSYCHOPATHIC, FOUL-MOUTHED, SMIRK-FACED, ARROGANT-PRONE, ILLITERATE WANNA-BE READERS, AND PATERNALISTIC, PEDANTIC, PRETENTIOUS, POMPOUS AND P*SS*SS PRICK WANNA-BE COMMENTERS of Heavy.com…”! And, if you could actually “think”, then you wouldn’t be making the DUMB*SS COMMENTS that you and your’s usually make!… and, on a daily basis! What you and the few other “PROFESSIONAL MISCREANTS” so D-E-S-P-E-R-A-T-E-L-Y N-E-E-D, is a slap upside your heads, and a kick up your *sses by a troupe of girl-guides from the local park that you and your’s– no doubt!– frequent, in order snap you MORONIC BUFFOONS out of your “MISCREANT WAYS”! Nevertheless!… maybe your HAPLESS SPOUSES and UNFORTUNATE NEIGHBORS, can get the job done! Bye bye!
