In another tragic reminder of the hatred and violence Donald Trump’s political campaign (and his resulting presidential win) has inspired, a viral video captured a Trump supporter pushing an anti-Trump protestor downstairs in Ohio. Just moments into a speech denouncing Donald Trump, Ohio State University student, Timothy Adams was charged at and pushed by another student in front of a large crowd. Individuals from the group stepped in on his behalf and restrained the violent student until cops were able to come to the scene.
The attack, however, did not stop him from finishing relaying his message.
“I think, if anything, tonight shows that we really need to bring people into social movements, bring people into social organizations and to come out for each other and stand up for each other,” Adams told Ohio State student news publication The Lantern. “Ultimately, coming together is the only thing that’s going to stop any kind of violence.”
The video was captured and shared by The Lantern, Ohio State University’s student newspaper.
