Police in riot gear hold back demonstrators against Trump outside the Hyatt hotel where Trump is set to speak at the California GOP convention in Burlingame, CaliforniaBy Sharon Bernstein BURLINGAME, Calif. (Reuters) – Protests erupted in California for the second day in a row on Friday against U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is moving closer to winning the Republican nomination after a string of victories this week. The billionaire businessman was forced to halt his motorcade and go through a back entrance to a hotel to give a speech to the California Republican convention and avoid several hundred loud protesters gathered outside. “That was not the easiest entrance I’ve ever made,” Trump told the gathering in Burlingame, south of San Francisco, after weaving around a barrier and clambering across a road to get to the venue.
