Violence erupted Saturday as Trump supporters and anti-Trump demonstrators clashed near President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The anti-Trump demonstrators largely gathered to oppose plans for a border wall and Trump’s immigration policies. Supporters “[turned] out in droves to defend the commander-in-chief, rule of law and what they say is his right to secure the nation’s borders,” according to the San Jose Mercury News.
Saturday’s standoff reportedly consisted of chants and counter-chants, with Trump supporters yelling, “U.S.A. U.S.A. U.S.A.!” while demonstrators chanted, “No KKK. No fascist U.S.A. No Trump!” according to the Mercury News.
The face-off followed Refuse Fascism L.A.’s earlier announcement that it would be holding an anti-Trump rally near the star on the Walk of Fame.
