New York Times reporters have been gathering footage of Donald Trump rallies across the nation for more than a year, and what they have found is shocking and terrifying. According to this footage released earlier this week, Trump rallies are a space where his supporters feel comfortable expressing extreme, offensive behavior and racism.
“Fuck that nigger!” a supporter is seen saying as Trump mentions president Obama.
Another is kicked from the rally for wearing a shirt that says, “Fuck Islam.” Although his shirt may have gotten him officially banned, other Trump supporters seemed to agree with both his message and his manner of expression. When he gets outside, he is met with encouraging chants and praise for refusing to take the shirt off.
You can find the Times’ video below. But please watch with discretion, as it contains racial slurs and vulgarity.
