Trump - Mexican Flags

Donald Trump. At his rally in Costa Mesa, protesters were waving Mexican flags. That sends a message, it causes a perception. Some US citizens may identify with the Mexican flag, but far more with the American flag.

UK Daily Mail:
Police clashed with protesters outside Donald Trump's rally in Costa Mesa, California Thursday night
One group of protesters was filmed trying to flip over a police car outside the Pacific Amphitheater where he spoke
Hundreds of demonstrators flooded the streets, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition
One Trump supporter was seen bloodied after being punched in the face, while about 20 people were arrested

LA Times reports:
“Protesters chose to bring out the Mexican flag to demonstrate their culture and not their nationality,” Villanueva said. “In this election year, I find the fact that people are waving Mexican flags more important than people waving American flags because of the diversity within our own American culture.”
