Watch: Trump Protestors Tear Down Barricades, Attempt To Storm California GOP Convention

Earlier this afternoon, anti-Trump protestors tore down barricades near the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, California, where the state’s Republican convention is being held in an attempt to disrupt Donald Trump’s address to attendees. The surge of protestors, which numbered in the hundreds, forced the billionaire to use the back entrance into the hotel that enabled him to deliver his remarks. Police mobilized quickly to prevent protestors from entering the hotel (via CNN):

Hundreds of demonstrators descended on the California Republican Convention Friday to protest Donald Trump ahead of his speech there.

Protesters -- some of whom wore bandanas over their faces and carried Mexican flags -- blocked off the road in front of the Hyatt Regency here, forcing the GOP front-runner's motorcade to pull over along a concrete median outside the hotel's back entrance. Trump and his entourage got out and walked into the building.

"That was not the easiest entrance I've ever made," Trump said once he began speaking at the convention, adding, "it felt like I was crossing the border."

At one point, about two dozen protesters tried to rush barriers near the hotel. Police officers then rushed to the building's doors, successfully blocking the protesters from getting in.

Several physical altercations, including shoving, could be seen between protesters and police officers, who were using batons to push them back.

Given the increased activity of the protestors, two counties worth of police have been reportedly mobilized, numbering between 150-200 officers. A “code 3 (get here ASAP)” was issued around 12:05 Pacific Standard Time, according to sources inside San Mateo County law enforcement, which is also one of counties that has been mobilized. The other being Santa Clara County. This report is subject to change. We’ll keep you updated.

Yet, in the end, the protestors’ goal of disrupting Trump from speaking failed. MSNBC broke the news to them gently.
