Pro-Donald Trump march, counter-protesters expected in Berkeley

By around 2 p.m. the groups had drawn closer together, and, as they merged, the odd confrontational conversation had escalated into at least one fight. A few weeks later in February, thousands marched in support of Muslims and against Trump's travel ban on refugees.

President Trump has been in office for a little over a month and a half. About a dozen counter-protesters were also on hand.

"I have safety concerns", he said.

Linda Guthrie, 53, had a small Trump doll she held to people's faces as if it were kissing them.

"Well, they're wrong. Donald Trump is my president, just like our previous president was our president", said Yen, R-Oklahoma City. At its height the crowd numbered about 250 people.

Several hundred people gathered in eastern Pennsylvania for a rally in support of President Donald Trump, one of a number of such rallies across the country.

The police department says five people were arrested Saturday for battery, four for assault with a deadly weapon and one for resisting arrest. Blood was coming from his nose while a friend wiped it with a T-shirt.

The gathering brought back some of the themes familiar to candidate Trump's campaign rallies, with the crowd chanting at various times "Build that wall", "Lock her up" and "Drain the swamp".

GOP looks for ObamaCare path as right lashes out
Once Republicans take over the problem, "It becomes ours", he said. " The president's going to be very pivotal in this ", said Rep.

The opponents to Trump chanted "Out Of Berkeley" loudly. "No KKK. No fascist USA" and held signs with messages like "Your vote was a hate crime".

The group took their rally outside, eventually deciding to go to a pedestrian bridge over U.S. Highway 52 where they honked and waved flags at motorists. Many said their aim was to show the president they support him now more than ever.

On Feb. 1, violent protests erupted in response to a scheduled appearance of controversial conservative speaker Milo Yiannopoulos, causing the event to be cancelled.

In Augusta, Maine, more than 100 people turned out for the event that was supposed to last three hours, but ended early because of freezing temperatures.

The protest Saturday didn't rise to that level of violence.

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". A massive women's march engulfed downtown Denver in January.

The city of Berkeley released a statement, saying that because of the nature of the crowd, police were not always able to make immediate arrests without inciting further violence or injuring bystanders. "We also made an attempt to intercede during acts of violence".
