President Trump kicked off his New Hampshire rally on Friday with a rant against the BLM protesters who accosted guests departing his RNC speech at the White House on Thursday night, branding the group ‘thugs’ and ‘agitators’.

Speaking to a crowd of several hundred people at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Trump lashed out at BLM demonstrators who had swarmed Senator Rand Paul, while praising the police officers who brought him to safety.

‘They walked out to a bunch of BLM thugs,’ Trump said as he criticized D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser for not doing more to protect his supporters. ‘Unhinged, manic rage. You ought to see it last night in Washington, it was a disgrace.’ Senator Paul on Friday said he was attacked by an ‘angry mob’ of more than 100 people near the White House and had to be rescued by the police.

Trump suggested the four cops involved ‘should be brought over to the White House and be given a medal of some kind.’ ‘We’re gonna do it,’ he said. ‘We’re gonna do it. I told that to Rand today.’ He also accused Mayor Muriel Bowser of giving police ‘bad instructions’ and said she should ‘be ashamed of herself for that kind of display of incompetence.’

BLM Organization

Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a decentralized movement advocating for non-violent civil disobedience in protest against incidents of police brutality and all racially motivated violence against Black people. While Black Lives Matter can primarily be understood as a decentralized social movement, an organization known simply as Black Lives Matter exists as a decentralized network with about 16 chapters in the United States and Canada. The broader movement and its related organizations typically advocate against police violence towards black people, as well as for various other policy changes considered to be related to black liberation.
