A Black Lives Matter protestor was hit with a nasty dose of karma last night after he decided to batter a black supporter of Donald Trump right in front of several police officers.

The video was posted to Twitter by Daily Caller reporter Jorge Ventura, who captioned it, “Breaking – #BLM protester punches Trump supporter in the face then is immediately arrested. Things are getting hostile at BLM plaza. Stay tuned for more updates on the ground.”

Ventura later told The Blaze that the man “was talking about how he couldn’t wait to get Trump reelected and he kept yelling ‘Trump 2020, 4 more years!’ which angered the crowd.”

The video opens with the Black Lives Matter protestor arguing with a black man in the middle of a street located close to what has been dubbed Black Lives Matter Plaza, which is across from Lafayette Park in Washington, D.C. As the argument becomes more heated, a crowd formed around the two men, with many urging the protestor not to get violent.

Now he probably wishes he’d followed their advice. Instead, the rioter punched the black Trump supporter in the face, ignoring the fact that several police officers were standing just a few feet away.

The cops immediately grabbed the protestor and pulled him away from the crowd, with one bystander then saying, “What he being detained for?” as if it weren’t blatantly obvious.

“He hit him first!” others could be heard shouting, even though the video footage shows this is a lie.

Ventura went on to post another video that showed what happened in the minutes after the assault. This video shows the crowd harassing officers as they escort the violent protestor into a police cruiser.

This just goes to show that the truth doesn’t matter to Black Lives Matter protestors at all. Onlookers all saw that the protestor clearly hit the Trump supporter first, yet they still tried to stop police from arresting him. In the end, this movement is not about black lives at all, and is instead about creating as much chaos as possible.
