Supporters of President Donald Trump held a peaceful rally in Washington D.C. this Saturday. During daylight hours things went smoothly, but when the sun went down, Antifa and BLM radicals came out to harass and assault Trump supporters, sometimes including families with children. Jeff Mordock reports for the Washington Times, writing:
A man was stabbed multiple times and at least 21 people are facing criminal charges after pro-Trump supporters and leftist groups clashed in downtown Washington, D.C., following Saturday’s “Million MAGA March.”
D.C. Police said Sunday they recovered seven guns and two officers were injured as pro- and anti-Trump factions brawled.
Thousands of President Trump’s supporters flocked to downtown D.C. to back his election recount efforts and refusal to concede. While the afternoon was relatively peaceful, punches were exchanged and violence erupted once night fell.
A video posted to social media showed a Trump supporter swinging a megaphone as a weapon as counterprotesters swarmed on him.
Another skirmish broke out as Trump supporters attempted to rip down anti-Trump signs and Black Lives Matters posters hanging from a fence along Lafayette Square across from the White House.
D.C. Police ultimately cleared that area to stop potential future violence.
A man was stabbed multiple times near the intersection of New York Avenue and 11th Street, but the injuries were not life-threatening, D.C. police said. It is not known if he is affiliated with any group.
Leftist agitators allegedly hurled eggs at Trump supporters, stole their pro-Trump signs, hats and banners, lighting them on fire, according to social media videos. One video allegedly showed anti-Trump demonstrators harassing an older woman carrying a Trump flag.
