A Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas turned nasty after several protesters interrupted the presidential candidate’s speech Monday night.

Several protesters interrupted Trump’s rally at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort, holding signs and shouting “Dump Trump! Dump Trump!” and then things got out of hand.

Video from the rally appears to show security staff attempting to remove a small group of protesters.

Another man reportedly shouted “sieg heil,” a Nazi salute, as another protester was removed from the Trump rally.

This isn’t the first time a Trump rally turned ugly.

Last month, a Black Lives Matter activist Mercutio Southall Jr. was punched and forcefully removed from a campaign rally in Birmingham, Alabama.

Southall began to chant “Black lives matter!” before the altercation took place. Several videos of the incident show Southall on the ground, and several men appear to be punching and kicking the protester.

The following day Trump called Southall’s actions “absolutely disgusting.”

“I will tell you that the man that was — was I don’t know, you say roughed up, he was so obnoxious and so loud, he was screaming,” Trump said. “I had 10,000 people in the room yesterday, 10,000 people, and this guy started screaming by himself … Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”
