Brothers Scott Leader and Steve Leader from Boston beat up a homeless man with a metal pipe and then urinated on him.

The brothers stated, “Donald Trump is right. All these illegals need to be deported.”

Donald Trump responded following the incident with regret. However, Trump did add this: "I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country, they want this country to be great again."
According to CNN, the victim told police that he awoke to the men urinating on him. He was brought to Boston Medical Center to be treated for a broken nose and serious bruising across his ribs, among other injuries, the press release said.
The Leader brothers are facing assault, gross lewdness, and battery charges.
Trump has said a number of things against immigrants in the United States. And it’s clear that he does have a following. According to The PPP poll done in July, it showed Trump leading the Republican field at 16 percent. The newest survey of N.C. shows Trump has risen steeply to 24 percent.

Do you think that Trump is partially responsible of the actions committed by his supporters, the Leader brothers?

I think Trump is a joke, a monster. He must be stopped. If we let him become president, it'll be worse than Nixon. I'm sure of it.
I think @LizArnone is right, I am sure that these people held their narrow minded and racist beliefs before Trump came out and said what he did, but Trump behaving as he does, gives the racists and sexists a justification to behave badly. There is a place for politicians to speak their mind and behave in a way that is true to their beliefs, but Trump seems to do it from a position of hate. To me Trump needs to come out and comdem these actions and the actions of anyone who perpetrates hate crimes.
people are fucking stupid. i wouldn't say he is a direct result of the violence because they clearly believe this bullshit before trump got on his soap box but him completely NOT condemning them and pretty much supporting them is DISTURBING!! how the hell can people support trump ughhhhhh its only gonna make other people think they can treat other human beings unfairly
UGH. YOU SHOULD NOT SUPPORT VIOLENCE. trump makes me so angry...
Man, I really hope he doesn't end up winning. Because that can totally happen. ;__; @TessStevens
