Protestors removed from Donald Trump economic speech in Detroit

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was repeatedly interrupted Monday by protesters as he unveiled his economic plan during a major speech in Detroit.

The real-estate mogul was forced to pause his speech at least a dozen times as demonstrators rose from their seats and begin voicing their displeasure with his policies.

The demonstrators appeared to strategically protest as individuals, instead of as a group, to maximize the amount of disruptions. It was immediately unclear if the protesters were part of a specific group.

Trump touted lower taxes and less government regulation as key parts of his job creation and economic plan.
