Donald Trump told a crowd at an Iowa rally on Monday to “knock the crap” out of any protestors who dared to toss tomatoes at the presidential candidate.
His full quote, according to Gawker:
“So if you see someone getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of ‘em. Would you? Seriously. Ok? Just knock the hell—I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise. I promise.”
Back in January, Trump told a crowd to take away the coat from a heckler in Vermont, calling for the man to be tossed out into the cold.
Trump is trying to turn out the vote at tonight’s Iowa Caucus, and the head of the Iowa GOP said Monday that he’s never seen such a flurry of calls from interested voters.
Ted Cruz, who is currently polling closest to Trump in Iowa, has been warning that, if Trump wins in the Hawkeye State and New Hampshire, he might be unstoppable.
