Donald Trump took to Twitter yesterday to warn Black Lives Matter protestors that they are not welcomed in Tulsa while he’s there for his rally. And the repercussions of that tweet were seen on Saturday, hours before the event even started.
Cameras captured the moment that police officers outside the premises pushed out a BLM protestor who was peacefully sitting and even had a ticket to the event.
The video shows the protester, Sheila Buck, wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt, sitting on the pavement and arguing as police officers and what appears to be an event official surround her.
“This is my country. This is my country. This is my city,” said Buck. “I have tickets for this event. I have clothes on. I’m protected. What’s the problem?”
“It’s a private event,” they responded.
“I have tickets to your private event,” said Buck. “I’ve been invited and have a ticket.”
“Yeah, well, my job with the campaign is to officially uninvite you,” said the event official.
Shortly after this interaction, Buck was forced to her feet and arrested.
