ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) An audio message broadcast on Sunday to supporters of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump before his speech at a campaign rally in Atlanta, Georgia instructed the crowd on how to deal with potential protesters during the event. The Republican front-runner's rallies have been occasionally interrupted by protesters critical of his stance on issues such as immigration or Muslims. The audio message said "some people" had taken advantage of Trump's support of free speech and "hospitality" by disrupting his rallies. "If a protester starts demonstrating in the area around you, please, do not touch or harm the protester," the message said. It instructed supporters to instead raise their Trump signs and chant "Trump, Trump" until officers can remove the protester from the venue. Trump, who is running as an anti-establishment outsider, rolled to victory on Saturday in the South Carolina Republican primary, helping solidify his position as the front-runners to win the Republican party nomination ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election.
