Tuesday night, Donald Trump brought his particular brand of campaigning to town.

Protesters shouted down Trump at times, while he mocked them as they were taken outside. He largely played to the large crowd of thousands.

Meanwhile outside, what started as a peaceful protests turned violent with smashed windows on police cars, burning t-shirts and protesters throwing rocks at police.

NM Political Report was on hand at both the rally and the protest.
