VIDEO: #BlackLivesMatter will never take my mic, says Donald Trump

Donald Trump calls Bernie Sanders weak for giving up mic to activists in Seattle. “Will never happen with me,” he vowed at Michigan Lincoln Day event.

Donald Trump says there'll be a fight if #BlackLivesMatter activists ever try to take away his microphone -- and lashed into Democrat Bernie Sanders as weak for letting protesters take his at a Seattle rally.

"Believe me, that's not going to happen to Trump," he said Tuesday night before speaking to a friendly Republican group in Michigan.

"I would never give up my microphone. I thought that was disgusting," he said of the black female activists who swarmed the 73-year-old Sanders on stage at weekend event, pointing and shouting at him that he wasn't speaking enough about their issues.

"That showed such weakness, the way he was taken away by two young women -- the microphone; they just took the whole place over," Trump railed.

"That will never happen with me," he said.

And there'll be a fight if the activists try, he said.

"I don't know if I'll do the fighting myself or if other people will, but that was a disgrace. I felt badly for him. But it showed that he's weak."

The event in Michigan was the Republican frontrunner's first since last Thursday's GOP debate in Cleveland and his brow-raising remarks that blood was flowing from Fox newswoman Megyn Kelly.

He spoke to reporters befor a speech to the Genesee and Saginaw Republican Party for their Lincoln Day gathering in Birch Run, Michigan.

He made light of the Kelly question on why he describes women with hateful terms.

Several of the words, like "slob" were ones he has lobbed at Rosie O\'Donnell.

“Boy, did I have nasty questions,” he said.

“Actually, Rosie O’Donnell saved me . . . I never thought I’d be giving credit to Rosie, but in this case, she was great.”

The crowd ate it up.
