In an interview, Shirley Teter said she was outside the rally and was responding “Dump, dump, dump,” as fans of the GOP presidential candidate chanted “Trump, Trump, Trump,” stating ” It was kind of comical.”

Teter said she became involved in protesting against Trump because, “I ran into another situation that was sickening my heart.”

Confronting Campbell, she claims she said, “You better learn to speak Russian, and I said the first two words are going to be, ha ha. He stopped in his tracks, and he turned around and just cold-cocked me.”

According to the woman, she fell over her oxygen tank, resulting in sore ribs, a sore jaw and a cut on her elbow. She was later transported to a local hospital and then released.

Police state they did not arrest Campbell at the time because they didn’t see the incident.

According to WLOS, Teter called the station after her interview and asked if people would  find a Trump supporter punching her in the face deplorable.
