The protester can be seen wearing a dark blue shirt and trying to wave a sign, when he is violently hit and shoved down by Trump supporters chanting “USA, USA.” The incident happened Monday at a Trump rally held at Cumberland Valley High School, in Mechanicsburg, a town in southern Pennsylvania.
A couple of men in the crowd intervene and help pull him out of the fray before police arrive and escort him out.
“People got to realize that just because you disagree with someone, doesn’t mean you can punch people,” Silver Spring Police Chief Chris Raubenstine told PennLive.
The protester, who wasn’t named in the report, declined to file charges and refused medical aid, and told authorities he “did what he wanted to get done.”
Raubenstine said the protester may file charges later if he changes his mind.

Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
