Rose Hamid, 56, who was sitting in the stands behind Trump in the rally held in Rock Hill, South Carolina, stood up when the billionaire businessman suggested that Syrian refugees were affiliated with the "ISIS" terrorist group.

In response, Trump commented on Hamid as she was being kicked out of the event. "There is hatred against us that is unbelievable. It's their hatred, it's not our hatred," he claimed.

Hamid, a flight attendant, later told CNN that she attended the campaign rally to "let Trump supporters see what a Muslim looks like."

"I figured that most Trump supporters probably never met a Muslim so I figured that I'd give them the opportunity to meet one," she said, wearing a shirt that read "Salam, I come in peace."
Despite her silence, Trump supporters around her began shouting "epithets" at the woman.

"The ugliness really came out fast and that's really scary," Hamid told media.
