Donald Trump blasted a man booted out the GOP front-runner's rally on the eve of Nevada's Republican caucuses — telling an appreciative crowd "I'd like to punch him in the face."

Trump accused the man of trying to punch the security officers who were escorting him out of the rally; CNN reports the man didn't appear to be fighting off the officers.

"Here's a guy, throwing punches, nasty as hell, screaming at everything else, when we're talking," Trump railed. "The guards are very gentle with him. He's walking out, with big high-5s, smiling, laughing. I'd like to punch him in the face."

"In the old days," protesters would be "carried out on stretchers. We're not allowed to push back anymore," he added, CNN reports.

Trump has taken a hard line against hecklers at previous rallies, including a Black Lives Matters protester who was punched and kicked at a rally in November.

"Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing," Trump said the following day.
