Meanwhile, a day before his CNN interview, on Jan. 24, a turbaned Sikh man was forced out of Trump’s rally in the state of Iowa. Trump was speaking about Islamic terror, one of his common campaign subjects, when the Sikh man tried to display a ‘Stop Hate’ sign.

“When planes fly into the World Trade Center, and into the Pentagon, and wherever the third plane was going, when people are shooting their friends in California–” Trump said, according to the Washington Post, as the Sikh man was confronted by a security guard and a police officer.

“Bye, bye,” the presidential candidate said as the turbaned Sikh protestor was bundled out, before pointing to a supporter’s hat and asking: “He wasn’t wearing one of those hats was he?”
