Republican 2016 Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump held a rally on March 12, 2016 in Dayton, Ohio and after cancelling a rally event in Chicago due to threats by the Black Lives Movement (BLM), a protestor jumped a barricade at the event and went after Trump before being taken down by Secret Service.
Trump was not too far into his speech when out of nowhere, the protestor jumps the fence and before reaching Trump, Secret Service agents manage to tackle the protestor before Trump was physically harmed.
Video of the attempted attack:
Trump after the attempted attack, asked the Trump supporters, “Is anything more fun than a Donald Trump rally?”
Shortly after the video was posted of the attempted attack, various sources, including NBC News has identified the suspect as Thomas Dimassimo, 32, in which it has been reported that he was charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic, both misdemeanors, Chief Mike Etter of the Dayton Airport Police Department told NBC News.
Dimassimo has been in the news on occasions due to his anti-USA protests. Dimassimo had gained national attention when he participated in a counter-protest along with other Black Lives Matter activists during a Confederate flag rally at Stone Mountain in Georgia in 2015.
In the above video, in which Dimassino posted it himself; it shows him dragging the American flag on the ground during a protest and states that this is not my flag.
