Warren man booted from Trump rally after protesting racism

A 22-year-old Warren man and Wayne State student was booted from a Trump rally after protesting racism.

- A Warren man kicked out of a Trump rally in on Friday has video documenting the incident with over 4 million views.

A video regarding freedom of speech gained wide attention after Wayne State student Saqib Javed, 22, was removed from a rally for presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Born in the United States and proud of his Pakistani heritage, Javed dressed in style last Friday, sporting sunglasses and a long coat known as a shewani. During the event, he made his way to the front of the crowd and began chanting: "Not all Mexicans are rapists, not all Muslims are terrorists."

Security removed him the event within seconds after Trump said, "Get him out of here."

Javed said he wore the traditional clothing to show Trump "this is not just a white nation."

Instead of commenting on what Javed had said, Trump made comments about the protester's hair after he was escorted out.

"He looks like an Elvis impersonator," he said. "That's strange because all the Elvis impersonators love Donald Trump. They love me. That's very sad. That makes me very unhappy."

Four other people were kicked out during the rally, but Javed said he hopes his message has been heard -- no one should be hesitant to say they're Muslim.

"This is the land of the free and the brave, and I freely and bravely spoke," he said.
