TTrump spoke to the press in Manhattan criminal court, where he is attending the tenth day of his trial for allegedly illegally paying a porn actress to silence an extramarital affair, and praised the role of the New York police in managing the protests at the University of Columbia, as well as that of the Los Angeles agents who dispersed the camp at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), according to The Washington Post.

“I’m very proud of the best police officers in New York. They are fantastic. They did a good job in Columbia and, in the same way, in Los Angeles, they did a very good job at UCLA,” said the former US president.

“This is a movement of the left, not the right,” Trump stressed. “These are radical left-wing lunatics. And they must be stopped,” he said.

Police agents made more than 100 arrests today after raiding the pro-Palestinian camp set up at UCLA.

The demonstration that was taking place at Columbia University, in New York, ended on Tuesday with the police storming an administrative building, making dozens of arrests.

Protests have roiled many universities in several cities across the United States since the Hamas attack in southern Israel, which killed around 1,200 people, most of them civilians, and took around 250 hostages.

During the ensuing war, Israel killed more than 34,000 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, according to the local Health Ministry, which makes no distinction between combatants and non-combatants, but says that at least two-thirds of those killed are children and women.
