Sanders and Clinton Condemn Trump for 'Applauding,' 'Literally Inciting' Violence

"What he is disturbed about and what I'm disturbed about is we have a major candidate for president of the United States, Donald Trump, who is literally inciting violence among his supporters".

On Friday night, clashes broke out between protesters and Trump supporters and forced the real estate mogul to postpone his campaign event in Chicago.

At one moment during his speech, Secret Service agents quickly surrounded Trump.

While a boisterous group of protesters gathered outside the theater where Trump spoke in downtown Kansas City, the event concluded without significant incident.

Let me say something about Mr. Trump.

He thinks protests like his may be having two reactions from Trump supporters: They either double down on their backing of Trump, or they begin to change their minds.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Trump's top competitor for the GOP nomination, said Sunday on "Meet the Press" that it's wrong for protestors to try to shut down the businessman's rallies.

Trump once said he'd like to punch a protestor "in the face" and told one crowd that they should "knock the crap" out of anyone who throws a tomato at the stage. "If they want to do this... we're going to go strongly for your arrests".
