When the fight briefly interrupted the rally, Trump said, “Get him the hell out of here, will you, please?”
Afterward, Trump’s campaign said it “does not condone” the physical violence, CNN reports. But in a Fox & Friends interview Sunday, the Republican presidential hopeful himself took a different tone.

Southall said he doesn’t think he was seriously injured and that he’d like to see a police investigation into the attack against him.
