Examples of protester in a Sentence

  1. Donald Trump:

    First of all let's not even use the word violence, there's very little disruption generally speaking. It's a function of the press, the press likes to say what the press likes to say, if one person gets up and starts shouting and the police walks that person out, they try and make it like it's a violent thing. It's not violent. It's a protester that stands up or probably a disruptor, because I think they're sent there by people on the other side.
