20 people were arrested outside a Donald Trump event in Burlingame, CA. The protesters, some of whom were illegal immigrants, protested Trump’s immigration statements, including his campaign promise to build a wall at the Mexican border.
Yelling “F— Trump” and “you’re a racist,” protesters beat a Trump look-a-like and broke out the windows of a police car. Trump and his Secret Service bodyguards were forced to clamber over a roadside retaining wall after rioters blocked his entrance to the Hyatt Regency Hotel where his event was scheduled.
Helicopter news cameras captured Trump and his security detail hopping over a roadway barrier and onto grass before sneaking into the hotel through a back door.
“That was not the easiest entrance I’ve ever made,” Trump joked when he took the podium. “My wife called, ‘There are helicopters following you,’ and then we went under the fence and through the fence. It felt like I was crossing the border actually.”
