Donald Trump sparks racial conflict in Dallas

A downtown Dallas rally by presidential hopeful Donald Trump produced some of the sharpest scenes of conflict yet in his campaign as hundreds gathered to protest his positions on immigration and confronted supporters as they left the event.

Inside the rally at the American Airlines Centre sports arena, the biggest cheers from the thousands of attendees erupted when the Republican said it was time to stop illegal immigration.

“It’s a massive problem,” Trump said as the crowd around him stood roaring and waving Trump campaign signs and American flags.

But when the rally ended, supporters walked to their cars through a gauntlet of protesters, many of them Hispanic, shouting “shame on you.”

Some yelled back: “Keep them out!”

Police struggled to keep the two sides separate.

Trump, a New York businessman-turned-politician, has said he would deport the 11 million people estimated to be living in the US illegally and build a wall between the US and Mexico.

In a speech on June 16 launching his campaign, he said: “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists.”
