Trump Riot in New Mexico: Natives On Both Sides
The Republican presumptive presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump, was met by supporters and protesters in downtown Albuquerque Tuesday evening, where he held a rally at the city’s convention center. Demonstrators were peaceful, at first, as Trump advocates filed into the building for his appearance.
Albuquerque police monitored the Trump adversaries who were barricaded across the street from the center. But the mood changed after sunset. Protesters began getting more aggressive as chants of “F*ck Trump” echoed in the streets. The scene was a definite microcosm of the polarization and divisiveness across America that has overtaken the country during this campaign season.
