Donald Trump challenged to boxing match, promoter Bob Arum vows to "shut his mouth"

Donald Trump is famous for saying he wanted to "punch protesters" and for violent assaults on protesters at his events. Now he has been challenged to put up or shut up by boxing promoter Bob Arum. At an unrelated boxing match he vowed "“Any time he wants, all proceeds go to charity. Let me take on Donald Trump." He added "I’ll handle him, not like these guys who don’t hit him and treat him with kid gloves. I mean, he’s a disgrace. You can’t say what he’s saying; you can’t make these hateful speeches when you’re running for President of the United States."

Code Pink activists assaulted by Trump brownshirts in Las Vegas

On the 21st of January, a Code Pink activist was punched and violently dragged out of a Donald Trump rally after raising a banner and demanding an end to the hate Trump is peddling. As the brownshirts pummeled her she lost her jacket. When someone tried to return it, Donald Trump himself ordered the good Samaritan to stand down, saying “leave her jacket there… to hell with her.” This is what makes the violent Trump supporters brownshirts-the command and control relationship between them and their Fuhrer Donald Trump. This kind of ugly violence is more commonly associated with German beer hall speeches in the late 1920's and early 1930's than with elections in the US.
