During a Trump Rally in North Carolina on Friday, Oct. 14, yet another altercation broke out among the crowd when a protestor held the American flag upside-down in defiance of the GOP candidate.

The man was quickly spotted by Trump who pointed at him and announced “Get out.”

Two supporters quickly made their way over to the protester and shoved him.

"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," Trump said as one supporter rushed the detractor, "We're going to turn it around, folks. We're going to turn it around."

Another man, an apparent LGBT Trump supporter wearing a “Gays for Trump” t-shirt and holding a Pride flag, put the man in a headlock before security intervened and escorted the protester away from the crowd.

The crowd then chanted "USA! USA! USA!" 

Police then came back for two of the assailants, including the apparent LGBT rallyer, and removed them from the crowd as well.

When asked by CNN why the “Gays for Trump” supporter accosted the protester, he said, “I didn’t hit him.”

Other Trump supporters chanted “Let him stay,” as he walked through from the crowd and away from the gathering.
