Trump: 'I'm Always Saying' We Don't Condone Violence
Donald Trump on Sunday condemned the growing violence at his rallies, saying there is no place in this country for the clashes that have been seen in the past few days.
Despite the violence, however, no one has been hurt, he said.
“It’s a shame that it happened, and I feel badly for everybody concerned. We don’t condone violence,” said Trump.
But “with rallies of 25,000 and 35,000 people, you don’t know of one injury in any of our rallies,” he said.
“Who do you know that’s been hurt over the last number of months? Nobody. Nobody.”
Trump called the protesters at his events “bad dudes” and “professional disrupters,” some of whom appeared to be organized Bernie Sanders supporters, he told Chris Wallace.
“They came in with the Bernie Sanders signs, right out of his printing press,” he said.
The presidential candidate said that while he has repeatedly condemned violence at his rallies, this is not reflected in the media.
“If you would play 99 percent of the clips, I’m always saying, ‘Don’t hurt them, take it easy. Don’t hurt them,’” he said.
