At a Donald Trump rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, a protester was shoved and put in a head lock by a Donald Trump supporter. The protester was reported to be holding a USA flag "upside down". The crowd began by yelling at the protester, and Donald Trump pointed directly at the protester to "get out!". Then one supporter shoved the protester, trying to escorting him out of the rally. When the protester fought back, the supporter put the man in a headlock. Police intervened, and both men were eventually escorted out of the rally. Trump then said to the crowd, "That's what's happening to our country, that's what happening. That is total disrespect for our flag, that's what's happening to our country. We're going to turn it around, folks. We're going to turn it around."
