By Fox News. Video taken during an anti-Trump protest in central London on Tuesday captured a group of men assaulting and knocking an elderly fan of President Trump to the ground.
The video showed a mob surrounding the man, then pushing him to the ground as they chanted “Donald Trump’s not welcome here,” during the rally in Parliament Square where Britain’s left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn gave a speech widely seen as anti-Trump.
In his speech, Corbyn criticized the “hatreds that are being fueled by the far-right in politics in Britain, in Europe and the United States.” . . .
The older man, wearing a red and white hat, could be heard in the video saying “get off” as the other men grabbed his jacket and pushed him.
People around the supporter immediately helped him get back up and made sure he was not injured. One woman standing nearby shouted, “If you act like that, you act like Donald Trump, so don’t.” Others could be heard asking the man if he was alright.

Leaders of Britain’s main opposition party are due to join demonstrators later at a rally in Trafalgar Square, just up the street from May’s Downing St. office. Police have erected barricades to stop protesters marching past the gates of Downing St. (Read more from “Trump Baby Blimp Flies in London as Protests Greet President” HERE)
