While a good portion of the RNC was virtual, several speeches, including President Trump's closing speech, was given to a crowd on the grounds of the White House.

Outside of the White House, protestors held demonstrations expressing their discontent with Trump as president and outrage over Kenosha, Wis., police shooting Jacob Blake, a Black man, in the back seven times at close range in front of his three children on Sunday afternoon.

The conservative senator tweeted early Friday morning that he and his wife were attacked by an "angry mob" as they were leaving the White House.

Video of the incident does show D.C. police escorting Paul and his wife away from the White House as protesters heckled and jeered at him.

"When I walked out of the [White House] ... the security guard said, 'Be careful out there.' I didn't know what he meant," Moore told radio host John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM. I went about three or four blocks from the White House ... and I walked right into a Black Lives Matter rally. And it was very similar to the experience Rand Paul had."

Moore, who has advised the Trump White House on economic policy, added: "There were many, many [convention attendees] who were being harassed. It was a very dangerous situation. They started screaming lewd and vile things at me."

John Catsimatidis is an investor in The Hill.
