— -- Donald Trump may now be the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, but that doesn't stop him from reacting to hecklers in the same way he has throughout his campaign.

At a particularly turbulent rally in New Mexico on Tuesday, where demonstrators clashed with police outside the venue, multiple protesters interrupted Trump during his speech.

Trump used his trademark "Get 'em out!" dismissal for at least one and brushed off another by declaring it "So exciting."

Another man's forced exit prompted Trump to go on the offensive. "He can't get a date, so he's doing this instead," he said.

The heckler who caught the most of Trump's attention was a young boy seen shouting at the candidate.

"How old is this kid? Still wearing diapers," Trump said. "I'm telling you, the kid looks like he's 10 years old. I've never seen it."

"I said, 'Get out of here,' and he ran out. It was great. I wish everybody —" Trump said without finishing the sentence.

The real estate mogul and former reality show star is known for mocking and unceremoniously ejecting hecklers at his events.

At a January event in Vermont, he called for a protester to be removed without his coat. In February he mocked a protester in Massachusetts for his weight.

"You know, it's amazing. I mentioned food stamps, and that guy who's seriously overweight went crazy," Trump said.

One of the most controversial comments he has made about protesters was at an Iowa event in February, when he appeared to encourage his supporters to fight them.

"So if you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of him, would you?" he said. "I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise."That pledge didn't last long, as his statements came under scrutiny the following month when one of his supporters in North Carolina punched a protester and Trump wavered.

During an interview with "Good Morning America," Trump said he doesn't condone violence, adding, "And I didn't say I was going to pay the legal fees."
