Donald Trump was repeatedly interrupted by protesters during a campaign stop in Miami, jokingly threatening to get a "little more violent" if demonstrators continued to disrupt his event.
The real estate tycoon was speaking to a packed room at the Trump National Doral when waves of protesters stole the attention away from him.
After the first interruption, Trump said, "That's alright."
"Don’t hurt them, don’t hurt them, don’t hurt them. You can get them out, but don’t hurt them. We don’t want anyone getting hurt," he said, as supporters broke out into "USA, USA" chants. "That’s what freedom of speech — it’s all freedom of speech."

Trump then continued delivering his remarks when he was interrupted again — a second time. He issued a warning to future protesters.
"See the first group, I was nice. Oh, take your time," he said. "The second group, I was pretty nice. The third group, I'll be a little more violent. And the fourth group, I'll say, 'Get the hell out of here!'"

But, despite the ominous piece of advice he gave the crowd, the billionaire continued to be interrupted.

"Isn't this more fun than having a normal deal? Right, right?" he rhetorically asked. "Suppose we had a normal speech ... the evening ends we go home and go to sleep, this is more fun, right?"
