Pro-Trump, anti-Trump protesters clash in Berkeley
BERKELEY, Calif. (KGO) March 4, 2017 4;45PM
Arguments heated up in Berkeley as demonstrators on both sides of the debate over President Donald Trump’s policies clashed Saturday afternoon.
People participating in the “March 4 Trump” demonstration to show support for President Trump were met by members of the group “By Any Means Necessary,” and other protesters, which had planned a counter-demonstration.
More than a dozen Berkeley police officers were keeping a close eye on the demonstrations, but video shared on Twitter showed shouting matches erupting and getting physical between the two groups.
Protesters threw smoke bombs into the crowd.
Trump supporters ask Berkeley police to intervene. Say people are getting hit in the head.
Police eventually moved in to make arrests around 3:15 p.m.
