A black protester was hit, kicked and pushed to the ground at a Donald Trump rally in Alabama on Saturday.


CNN caught the incident on tape.

In the video, Trump can be heard to say, "Get him the hell out of here!" as the crowd cheers. People then chant, "All lives matter."


The network described an ugly scene:

At least a half-dozen attendees shoved and tackled the protester, a black man, to the ground as he refused to leave the event. At least one man punched the protester and a woman kicked him while he was on the ground.

All of the attendees who were involved in the physical altercation with the protester were white.

It's not the first time people at a Trump rally have reacted violently to protesters. In October, supporters at a Florida rally dragged, kicked and pushed an immigrant rights activist who was attending the event.

UPDATE: Donald Trump hinted during an interview with Fox News on Sunday that the protester may have deserved to be attacked .


"Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing," he said, according to Business Insider.
