Black Students Removed From Trump Rally For Planning A Silent Protest

The Donald has apparently had it with hecklers. Earlier today at a rally at Radford University in Virginia, some black students were escorted out when they began chanting. However, at a later rally at Valdosta State University in Georgia today, the Secret Service removed about 30 black students before Trump even began speaking.

"No more hecklers... EVER!!!"
“No more hecklers… EVER!!!”

The sight of the students, who were visibly upset, being led outside by law enforcement officials created a stir at a university that was a whites-only campus until 1963.

“We didn’t plan to do anything,” said a tearful Tahjila Davis, a 19-year-old mass media major, who was among the Valdosta State University students who was removed. “They said, ‘This is Trump’s property; it’s a private event.’ But I paid my tuition to be here.”

Video of the students being escorted out has appeared on Twitter.

There was a protest planned, but it was a silent one.

And the others who were participating in the protest drew no attention from Secret Service.

The Trump campaign is trying to deny that Trump himself asked for the students’ removal.

Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks in an email late Monday night denied that the students were shown the door “at the request of the candidate.”

“There is no truth to this whatsoever,” Hicks said.

However, there is some speculation that the campaign may have invoked his name to get the Secret Service to act.

Whether it was Trump himself or his campaign that wanted these students removed, it really doesn’t matter. What it does show is that after being too clueless to quickly and decisively distance himself from David Duke and the KKK’s endorsement, the Donald and his campaign are extraordinarily nervous about allowing him to be confronted on this issue. But this time, the preemptive move to take the students out of the rally before Trump even got on stage may have been an assumption too far that will cost him. It depends on how much traction this story gets from a media who knows that they are making a pretty profit off of covering the Donald.
