President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned anti-Trump protesters that attending his rallies is too “dangerous for them.”
“Whenever there was like a problem like there’d be a little argument or some kind of anti-trump person,” Trump told the crowd in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, referencing some violent clashes between his supporters and protesters at his rallies in 2016.
“You don’t see that much – I don’t wanna bring it on but you don’t see it much anymore. You know what? It’s dangerous,” Trump warned.
“It’s dangerous for them,” Trump said as he laughed.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tweeted: “Donald Trump continues his unbroken streak of celebrating violence in political campaigns. It’s un-American and the language of fascists. And Trump’s crowds eat it up.”

“Note that Trump isn’t talking about rioters or looters here,” wrote Jeff Kemp. “Just anti-Trump protesters. He’s celebrating the fact that Americans might be too afraid for their to exercise their constitutional rights at his rallies. This isn’t a president. It’s a fucking head thug.”
