Donald Trump rallied supporters at the Albuquerque Convention Center Tuesday night.

The apparent Republican nominee for president’s speech included familiar themes – the U.S economy, global trade, immigration and his plan to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Protesters confronted Donald Trump supporters at his rally in Albuquerque Tuesday. 

Police barriers created a sort of gauntlet where lots of Trump supporters walked past a protest on their way to see the apparent Republican presidential nominee speak at the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Protesters chanted and performed a traditional ceremony, and by the time Trump took the stage inside, tensions were rising at the demonstration outside. Protestors pushed past police barriers and threw objects at officers who used smoke at one point to push back the crowd.
