WATCH: Trump heckled at Faith and Freedom Conference as he tries to woo evangelicals
After an electoral season that saw presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s rallies continually disrupted by protesters and fights, he found no sanctuary at Friday’s Faith and Freedom Conference.
Only minutes into his speech – a rambling laundry list of topics near and dear to evangelicals’ hearts – Trump was interrupted by shouts from the crowd, forcing him to have to stop while security tracked the protesters down.
The crowd chanted “USA, USA, USA” as security officials dragged the protesters out with one, Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin, hanging desperately onto an attendees chair as they tried to pry her fingers off of it.
“Alright, alright,”Trump said as the last protesters were ejected. “Freedom of speech please. Freedom of speech. Very rude, but what are you going to do?”
He added, “Very sad, very very sad what’s happening. What’s happening in our country is so sad, we’re so divided. Such a shame. And, by the way, these are professional agitators.”
