I usually pick up on that stuff. Do you have any specific clips where he encouraged violence?
At a Las Vegas rally in late February, as a protester was again being removed from the premises, Trump lamented that "we're not allowed to punch back anymore" and reminisced about the halcyon "old days," when a protester would "be carried out on a stretcher"; "If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously." He again promised to pay for any legal fees associated with an assault; the comment about Hilary and gun owners; jokes about punching and rounding up protesters; how he could shoot someone and still get elected; "The audience hit back. That's what we need a little bit more of"; He also praised people using physical force at his rallies as "appropriate"; "In the good old days this doesn't happen because they used to treat them very, very rough"; "Get him out," he then said. "Try not to hurt him. If you do, I'll defend you in court, don't worry about it"; suggested that the problem with America is that “nobody wants to hurt each other anymore.”
At a campaign rally in Kansas City on Saturday, the day after the unrest in Chicago, Trump addressed an earlier event in Dayton, Ohio, when a protester tried to storm the stage.
The candidate said he would have fought the person had he reached the lectern and mimed punching him a few times.
"I'll beat the crap out of you," he then mouthed.
Throughout his campaign, Trump has exemplified a rhetorical strategy that mirrors the way extremists incite violence among their followers.
In a piece published in Rolling Stone, law professor David Cohen argues that Trump is engaging in what’s known as “stochastic terrorism” — an academic term that refers to the act of using suggestive language to inspire radicals to carry out violent acts. In this scenario, a lone wolf terrorist wouldn’t be explicitly instructed to commit their crimes, but they would be encouraged by rhetoric that appears to normalize that type of activity.
