A California man was taken to the hospital after he set himself on fire in protest of Donald Trump outside of Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.
“I was trying to light myself on fire…it was an act of protest,” the man told NBC DC reporter Shomari Stone.
Asked what he was protesting, the man said he was “protesting the fact that we’ve elected somebody who is completely incapable of respecting the Constitution of the United States.”
The man appears to not have suffered serious injuries from the fire. NBC News cameras showed what appeared to be a pile of clothes ablaze in the middle of the street.
