During a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina, on Friday night, Trump’s speech was continually interrupted by groups of protesters, by some guesses as many as ten separate times. The protesters all appeared to be associated with Black Lives Matter, and were positioned randomly throughout the arena.
Trump continually points at the protesters and then at another spot, perhaps signaling to security, a tight-lipped smirk plastered on his face. At one point, he responded to a protester with a simple, uncomfortable “hello.”
Some reports say that there were five separate incidents, with others going as high as 10. Each time, Trump supporters moved quickly to remove them from the arena or “covering them in coats,” according to CNN’s Noah Gray.
