Secret Service surrounds Donald Trump at campaign event

Secret Service Agents Rush To Protect Donald Trump  .MP4

A startling scene broke out during the Republican front-runner Donald Trump's gathering in Dayton, Ohio on Saturday, just a day following raucous protests in Chicago that led to the cancellation of a planned rally on Friday.

Shortly after the billionaire business man scolded a protester on Saturday to, "Go back home to mommy," screams erupted from behind Trump's podium, leading to four security members to jump onstage to protect the White House hopeful.

Saturday's incident is the latest in an escalating number of protests and violent outbursts to take place at rallies for Donald Trump.

Stop calling them protestors and start calling them terrorists, because words matter and that's what they are #TrumpChicago #TrumpRally

Earlier in the day fellow Republican 2016 hopeful Marco Rubio spoke with reporters in Florida regarding the explosiveness at Trump's rallies, saying, "This a frightening, grotesque, and disturbing development in American politics."

Trump continues to deny culpability for the reported volatile atmosphere at his gatherings, defending Friday night's canceled rally by Tweeting on Saturday that, "The organized group of people, many of them thugs, who shut down our First Amendment rights in Chicago, have totally energized America!"

During last week's Republican CNN debate, debate moderator Jake Tapper confronted the front-runner over recent controversial comments he has made during his massive gatherings.

Tapper noted that the White House hopeful has said, "I'd like to punch him in the face," referring to a protester.

"February 27: 'In the good ol' days, they'd have ripped him out of that seat so fast.' February 1: 'Knock the crap out of him, would you? Seriously, OK just knock the hell — I promise you I will pay for the legal fees. I promise, I promise,'" Tapper said, quoting Trump's previous comments.

The billionaire business man responded by calling the protesters, "Bad dudes." "They have done bad things. They are swinging, they are really dangerous, and they get in there, they start hitting people," Trump said.
