JNS.org – Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani was confronted by a group of anti-Trump activists on Sunday during a pro-Trump rally in Manhattan.

According to reports, far-left demonstrators gathered at the corner of 5th Avenue and 59th Street to protest the “Jews for Trump” caravan passing through the city.

Videos posted on social media show protesters hurling epithets at the caravan, with some directing their vitriol at the ex-mayor. “F*** you, Rudy,” one man screamed.

Other protesters were seen throwing eggs at the caravan, including Giuliani’s vehicle, while one person was filmed ripping a pro-police “Back the Blue” flag from one of the vehicles in the caravan.
