ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was greeted by several protesters at a campaign rally in New Orleans on Friday. Trump had to pause on at least six occasions while security escorted the protesters out of the premises. "Get 'em out of here," Trump repeatedly said. "See, in the old days, it wouldn't take so long, folks. Today, we're dealing... we're in a little bit of a different world," Trump added, remarking on the amount of time it took for security to remove the protesters. Trump consolidated his lead in the Republican race with a string of victories on Tuesday that moved him closer to becoming the nominee. The 69-year-old New York real estate tycoon won seven states from Massachusetts to the conservative Deep South. His victories compounded the problem for a party whose leaders are critical of many of Trump's positions and values and skeptical he can defeat the likely Democratic nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Trump has showered insults on rivals and is facing strong party disapproval over his ideas to build a wall between the United States and Mexico, deport 11 million illegal immigrants and temporarily bar Muslims from entering the country.
