Protests outside Donald Trump's Albuquerque rally became a national story after people stormed police barriers and threw rocks at officers. But before all of that went down, hundreds demonstrated peacefully for hours.
Thousands of Donald Trump supporters lined up outside the Albuquerque Convention Center Tuesday to hear the apparent Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, speak. Here’s a bit of what some of them had to say about why they plan to vote for him.
Protesters confronted Donald Trump supporters at his rally in Albuquerque Tuesday.
Police barriers created a sort of gauntlet where lots of Trump supporters walked past a protest on their way to see the apparent Republican presidential nominee speak at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
Protesters chanted and performed a traditional ceremony, and by the time Trump took the stage inside, tensions were rising at the demonstration outside. Protestors pushed past police barriers and threw objects at officers who used smoke at one point to push back the crowd.
