A protester who was wearing a turban was ejected from a Donald Trump rally in Iowa on Sunday. The Sikh man wearing the turban, along with another protester, held a sign that read “Don’t Hate,” a message which didn’t work out well for them at a Trump rally, so both men were removed from the main gym at Muscatine High School while the GOP front-runner’s supporters cheered it on.
Another view was tweeted:

Trump reacted to the incident, asking the crowd, “He wasn’t wearing one of those hats, was he?,” as he pointed to what several media outlets reported was one of the Trump campaign’s signature “Make America Great Again” hats, The Washington Examiner reports. Although, that’s up to speculation after seeing the video clip.
Loud chants of ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!” could be heard from the crowd. And then, of course, chants of “USA! USA! USA!” could be heard at the rally after the man was removed.
“Was he wearing one of those? And he never will … and that’s OK,” Trump said, then went on to say that Muslims have told him that he is doing a great service to members of their faith, however, the hotel magnate failed to detail how he assists them.
This is nothing new for the billionaire candidate. Unlike President Obama, dissent is not allowed in his presence. This is the GOP front-runner and his vile supporters, who think America is not great now, with its freedom of speech and other rights which we enjoy daily.
Before and after ejecting the protesters, Trump slammed Muslims during his speech at the rally, while the crowd of supporters ate it up.
Trump’s America is not the America we know and there’s a reason he’s compared to Hitler. There, I said it.
While Trump spoke of ‘radicalized’ Muslims, he spoke in front of a radicalized audience.
