Interracial violence was perpetrated in Phoenix, Arizona, in the name of “protesting” Trump.
This morning I found two instances of white interracial violence against black Trump supporters, one of which took place in Pheonix. I can’t say the perpetrators were Antifa because they weren’t masked.
Mediaite reported on one incident, “Black Trump Supporter Punched While Fleeing Arizona Melee.”
A few thousand protesters showed up outside the event, and things were mostly peaceful until the end of the rally, when Trump supporters filtered out of the Phoenix Convention Center and police had to use tear gas to manage the crowds.
One violent clash between Trump supporters and protesters was caught on video by New York Times correspondent Simon Romero, showing a pickup truck packed with MAGA-hat-wearers arguing with protesters surrounding the truck.
The African American was obviously trying to deescalate the situation and get his friends to safety in the truck so they could drive away. Didn’t earn him any credit.

Why did the very white “protestor” feel the need to target a black man? Are African American Trump supporters especially hated by white leftists?
Here’s another incident:
