LOS ANGELES: Protesters opposed to Donald Trump hurled rocks and bottles outside a Trump rally in New Mexico on Tuesday, the same day the bombastic billionaire won the Republican presidential primary in Washington state. The primary victory brings Trump, the last Republican standing in the 2016 US presidential race, one major step closer toward clinching his party’s nomination. But the success was clouded by violent anti-Trump demonstrations in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Chaos erupted outside a Trump rally when protesters threw burning t-shirts and bottles at police, and tried to storm the convention center where the provocative Republican candidate was speaking. Horse-mounted police and officers wielding clubs used pepper spray and smoke bombs to try to disperse the crowd. The protesters, several of whom waved Mexican flags, chanted expletives about Trump. Some also waved signs with expletive-laden anti-Trump slogans in Spanish.
