Numerous anti-Donald Trump protesters were forcibly removed from their seats by law enforcement and the pro-Trump crowd at a rally in Youngstown, Ohio on Tuesday.
Midway through the “Make America Great Again” rally, the crowd stopped and pointed while a young-looking protester held a Soviet Union flag. Almost instantly, he got into an altercation with the Trump supporters that surrounded him.
At one point, a man sitting behind the protester stepped forward and grabbed the flag out of his hands. Law enforcement approached the protester and pulled him out of the seating area by his anti-Barack Obama shirt.
Trump then returns to the mic and makes fun of the protester’s age, saying “he’s a young one, he’s going home to Mommy, he’s in trouble … and I’ll bet his mommy probably voted for us, right?”

That wasn’t the only time a protester was forcibly removed from the crowd during the rally.
Once Trump took the stage, he said that he’s “here to cut through the fake news and speak to the American people.” The phrase brought “CNN sucks” chants from the crowd.
Almost immediately after, Trump paused and a chorus of boos came from the crowd at the Covelli Arena. The camera flashed to a protester in a red shirt and inside-out hat holding a “Trump/Pence Must Go” flag.
A man behind the protester made an attempt to grab the flag and hits the man with his Trump campaign sign. Then another man tugs at the flag while an officer enters the stands and removes the man.
On their way out, the man is caught by several Trump supporters who grab him by the shirt and rip the flag away from him. Once the protester was removed, Trump goes back to the microphone and says, “Where the hell did he come from?”

Earlier in the rally, Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump gave a speech when another protester interrupted and was removed by law enforcement. Lara asked the crowd, “Anybody else?”
