No charges against Trump after protester sucker-punched

Critics of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump say the billionaire businessman's inflammatory rhetoric and barely-veiled threats directed at protesters have been fueling an increasingly toxic atmosphere surrounding his ralliesAuthorities in North Carolina have decided there is not enough evidence to charge Donald Trump with incitement after one of his supporters punched a protester in the face at a campaign rally there last week. Police launched an investigation into whether the Republican frontrunner in the White House race could be charged with “inciting a riot” after a chaotic rally in the city of Fayetteville, where a white Trump supporter sucker-punched an African-American protester. “Accordingly, we will not be seeking a warrant or indictment against Mr. Trump or his campaign for these offenses,” read the statement, which comes after a few days of particularly violent clashes and protests at Trump events.
