Video shows a black man who began shouting "Black lives matter!" during Donald Trump's speech at a massive rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday, November 21, 2015, being shoved and pushed by Trump supporters.

Trump, speaking on Fox & Friends Sunday suggested the heckler had it coming. "Maybe he should have been roughed up," he said. "It was disgusting what he was doing."

This first clip shows the man shouting:

This next clip, tweeted by a CNN's Jeremy Diamond who was at the rally, shows what happened to the man as Trump told his followers "Get him out of here, get him out of here!"

Here's what Diamond reported on CNN.com:

"Several attendees at the rally punched and kicked a protester who tried to disrupt Trump's speech.

"At least a half-dozen attendees shoved and tackled the protester, a black man, to the ground as he refused to leave the event. At least one man punched the protester and a woman kicked him while he was on the ground.

"All of the attendees who were involved in the physical altercation with the protester were white."
