Protesters pushed, verbally harassed and spat on donors attending a Donald Trump fundraiser in Minneapolis on Friday night, the Star Tribune reported.
The Minneapolis Convention Center area became unruly as attendees left after the event, according to the newspaper.
{mosads}”Some fundraiser attendees were pushed and jostled, spit on and verbally harassed as they left the ­convention center,” the Star Tribune’s Patrick Condon reported.
Trump never appeared in public, according to the report.
A peaceful protest formed earlier in the evening, organized by the Minnesota Immigrants Rights Action Committee.
“You’ve got somebody out there saying things that used to only be said in the shadows,” said Giselda Gutierrez, a demonstrator who lives in Minneapolis, in an interview with the Star Tribune. 
“I think what he’s saying represents something pretty dangerous for our country.”
The aggressive demonstrators reportedly didn’t arrive until later. The later group of protesters hid their faces behind scarves.
