Tensions high at pro Trump rally at the Capitol

Tensions high at pro Trump rally at the Capitol

Demonstrations across the country meant to show support and unity for President Donald Trump have grown violent in some areas.

They says Trump supporters came to provoke fights in liberal Berkeley. "We just want America to be number one again", said Dusty Holmes, of Naples.

Relative to the size of rallies and marches convened in protest of the Trump administration, though, Saturday's Trump-celebrating events were small. She said the rally was worth the trip.

With hundreds wearing red, white and blue while waving "Trump-Pence" signs, it would seem like a campaign rally if Trump hadn't already been president for 43 days.

Some hoped a day of peaceful gathering could heal the increasing partisan divide that has sorted liberals and conservatives into opposing camps that interact with one another less and less.

At least one Trump supporter had pepper spray and used it a few times, hitting several people.

Rallies were scheduled in about 50 cities, including Las Vegas, according to organizers.

Jeff Ryan, a retired Trump supporter from Hayward, came draped in an American flag.

Has he read any of the president's tweets lately? In Manhattan, a couple hundred supporters gathered in front of Trump's eponymous tower and chanted "U-S-A" and held signs reminding Americans that "yes, he is our president".

In Florida, near Mar-a-Lago, people on both sides exchanged profanity, the Palm Beach Post reported.




Even on that, Trump supporters disagreed. The Feb. 1 speaking engagement was cancelled by authorities after more than 100 masked people threw rocks, broke windows and set fires outside the university's student union building.

Prior to the Berkeley event, both protesters and counter-protesters were wary of how the event would go.

As the rally kicked off with a prayer, a group of counter protesters wearing all black crowded the bottom of the hill.

According to theA, Berkeley police arrested 10 rally attendees.

It also was done without any protester interruptions, he said.

Mrs. Huss, representing Concerned Women for America, bases her decisions on issues such as when candidates believe life begins, and on religious freedom issues.

"He's doing a good job, I think", Trump supporter Trent Herbert told Roth.

President Donald Trump supporters yell at protesters during the March 4 Trump rally at the Colorado State Capitol March 04, 2017 in Denver.

But that didn't stop the media from putting one helluva spin on events, as seen in a report from The Hill that featured this headline: "Pro-Trump Berkeley protests get physical". Police officers, who were forced to intervene in several fights, arrested nearly a dozen people during the tense rally.

The police department says five people were arrested Saturday for battery, four for assault with a deadly weapon and one for resisting arrest.
