In the meantime, Trump is alternating between passing condemnations of violence paired with blatant celebrations of it.
On Sunday, he said on NBC's "Meet The Press" that he was considering paying legal bills for the 78-year old supporter who was arrested for sucker-punching a black protester on camera. He tweeted that Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, who Trump blames for the protesters at his rallies, needed to "be careful" or he'd send his supporters to disrupt his events.
Some activist groups supporting Sanders participated in the Chicago protests, but Sanders has said his own campaign had nothing to do with them and called on Trump to condemn violence.
"[My] personality, eh, they don't love it so much but that's okay," Trump told the crowd in Boca Raton on Sunday after arriving in a helicopter. "Who cares? Who the hell cares about that? We got to straighten out our country."
I think that he is going to become a nationalist icon. Combined with his support of bullying and totalitarian tactics, this could turn into a mess.

I dont agree with everything Trump says. But this violence is almost entirely being instigated by far left thugs.
