A Trump supporter was arrested during an altercation with a reporter and another man outside the president’s Orlando campaign rally.
Video recorded by an Orlando Sentinel reporter shows a man wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat and another man outside the Amway Center, where President Donald Trump officially kicked off his 2020 campaign.
The two men appear to be arguing with one another, although the second man also appears to be angry about something that took place inside the arena, when the man wearing the Trump hat notices the reporter recording them with a phone.
“Are you taping?” the man says. “I want it. Stop. I want this. I want it, I want it. I promise I’ll take it.”
The reporter backs away, still recording, and the man smacks the phone in front of a security guard, who pulls him away.
“This motherf*cker’s taping,” he complains.
Two security guards order the man to leave the property immediately, and he continues complaining as a police officer approaches.
The second man stands alongside as the man in the hat profanely complains about the reporter, and video later shows him being handcuffed and taken into custody.
The newspaper reported the man, whose name was not released, was arrested.
Another man was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge earlier in the day.

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit
Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.
Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."
While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
