Trump Accused Democrats Of Viewing 'Everybody As Fascists And Nazis' Before Protester Was Kicked Out Of New Hampshire Rally

President Donald Trump is facing fresh backlash after he body-shamed a protester at his rally in New Hampshire on Thursday night, telling the demonstrator to "go home" and "start exercising."

"That guy's got a serious weight problem," Trump said as the demonstrator was escorted out.

"Go home, start exercising. Get him out of here," the president said, adding: "Got a bigger problem than I do. Got a bigger problem than all of us. Now, he goes home and his mom says, 'what the hell have you just done?'"

While it is still unclear what the protester might have done to draw attention to his presence in the crowd, we do know what the president was saying in the moments leading up to the incident.

After touting his administration's efforts to "expand opportunity for citizens of every background and every race, religion, color and creed" in the United States, the president started railing against the Democrats, accusing them of sowing division in the country.

"My administration is fighting to expand opportunity for citizens of every background and every race, religion, color and creed. Very important," Trump said. "Because we are all Americans. We all share the same home. We all share the same heart. We all share the same dreams. We are all children of the same Almighty God."

However, Trump said, "at the very moment when our country should be coming together to enjoy these wonderful blessings the radical Democrats are trying to tear America apart."

"They vilify anyone who doesn't share their extreme views," the president said, as the crowd booed.

"They slander our law enforcement heroes," he said, pointing to an incident that saw New York residents splash water on New York Police Department officers.

"I know a lot of New York's finest. They're not happy, they're not happy and they are great people...for that to be allowed to happen is a disgrace," Trump said.

Of the Democrats, the president said: "They view everybody as fascists and Nazis."

"They use the term 'Nazi'. This was a term, you couldn't even use it. now they use it like on a regular basis. 'A Nazi. He's a Nazi.' Think of that. 'He's a Nazi.' You couldn't use it. Now they use it."

Further, the U.S. leader said, Democrats "accuse our heroic border agents of running concentration camps."

"They do an incredible job and the Democrats don't want to fix the loopholes or asylum. They do an incredible job, our border agents," he said.

Then, as Trump began to accuse Democrats of looking "down upon the hardworking citizens who truly make our country run," a commotion appeared to unfold in the crowd.

"While the Democrats rage and resist..." Trump said, before the incident caught his attention.

As security appeared to remove the protester, Trump began to hurl insults about the demonstrator's body.

"That guy's got a serious weight problem. Go home, start exercising," the president said, adding: "Get him out of here please," as the crowd chanted "USA, USA."

Commentators were taken aback when, not long after body-shaming the protester, the president claimed that his campaign "is a movement of love."

"Incredible," said journalist Aaron Rupar. "Mere seconds after he demeaned a protester for being overweight, one of the very first thing Trump read from the teleprompter was 'our movement is a movement of love'."

The incident came after Trump faced insults about his body from 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

During a recent visit to Iowa, Yang said that he would challenge the U.S. leader "to any physical or mental feat under the sun."

I mean, gosh, what could that guy beat me at? Being a slob?" he said at the Iowa State Fair, according to ABC News.

"Like, what could Donald Trump possibly be better than me at? An eating contest?" he then said.

"Like something that involved trying to keep something on the ground and having really large body mass? Like, if there was a hot-air balloon that was rising and you needed to try and keep it on the ground, he would be better than me at that," Yang said. "Because he is so fat."
