Protesters holding adult slot constitutions were reportedly ejected from a Donald Trump convene in Portland, Maine on Thursday. Video from a convene shows protesters station and holding a booklets in a air. Campaign staffers shortly afterward private a protesters, CNN reports.

“You can do whatever we want. Go ahead, do whatever we want,” Trump pronounced as a criticism was holding place.

Afterward, he said, “Well, we have to say, we know, a Trump convene is a safest place in a nation to be, trust me.”

In a next video, a protesters can be seen shortly after a 1:06:00 mark.

The slot structure became an instrument of criticism opposite Trump in a debate Khizr Khan delivered during a Democratic National Convention final week. Khan, a father of a depressed Muslim soldier, reason adult a slot structure as he criticized Trump: “Let me ask you: Have we even review a United States Constitution? we will gladly lend we my copy.”

Since then, a slot constitution’s approval has soared — progressing this week, a slot structure was during No. 2 on Amazon’s bestseller list, as a New York Times reported. Today, it’s during No. 5. The debate also desirous a American Civil Liberties Union to give divided giveaway copies.

But regulating it to criticism a Republican hopeful is a change from new years in that a Constitution has turn a regressive symbol, and quite a Tea Party symbol. When members of a House of Representatives did a reading of a Constitution before a start of Congress’ event in 2011, it was considered a pointer of approval to Tea Party members (though some Democrats also participated).

That done a criticism opposite a Republican claimant remarkable, as a Boston Globe’s Matt Viser noted:

Shortly after a slot Constitution protest, another protester interrupted Trump. However, Trump told his throng that protests opposite him have diminished.

“It’s function a small bit today, though it hasn’t been function much,” he said. “I arrange of skip my protesters.”
