Minutes into a Trump rally in Tucson, Arizona the presidential candidate was interupted by a protestor donning a Klan hood, drawing ire from the Republican frontrunner and the crowd. Trump had only started his speech minutes before.
"There's a disgusting guy," Trump yelled when he saw what the protestor was wearing. "He puts a Ku Klux Klan hat on it. He thinks it's cute. He's a disgusting guy. That is a disgusting guy. Really disgusting."
Moments later the audience audibly reacted to the protestor with the Klan hood.
"I tell you folks, that's a disgrace," Trump said.
The campaign event was interrupted for a few moments while the protestor was removed.
Nicholas J.C. Pistor, reporter at St. Louis Post-Dispatch, tweeted: "The #TrumpRally in Arizona is being interrupted a lot. Trump says protesters are throwing the American flag, wearing Klan outfits."
