Detroit: Hundreds Protest 11th GOP Presidential Debate

HeadlineMar 04, 2016

Four Republican presidential candidates faced off Thursday night at the Fox Theatre in downtown Detroit. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich all teamed up against front-runner Donald Trump. Meanwhile, outside the Fox Theatre, hundreds of people rallied to protest the GOP debate and what they say is hateful and Islamophobic rhetoric coming from the Republican Party. This is William Antoun of the Michigan Muslim Community Council.

William Antoun: “We’re out here tonight to protest the Republican debate, the policies and the things that some of the candidates are saying, particularly Donald Trump, the Islamaphobic comments, the straight-up fascism that’s being presented, and his followers and their actions. We are with an interfaith coalition to protest the racism and also to support all people of color over the injustices and the racist comments.”

We’ll have more on the GOP debate after headlines.
