Hundreds rally to show support for Trump in Raleigh

Several hundred people gathered in eastern Pennsylvania for a rally in support of President Donald Trump. It was one of a series of March 4 Trump events held around the country.

Protesters of the president say the Trump supporters showed up to provoke fights.

DAVENPORT- More than 200 people rallied to show support for President Donald Trump at the Davenport Guns Warehouse March 4th, 2017.

Welp, that pro-Trump rally happened as scheduled on Saturday in downtown Berkeley despite the lack of a permit, and as was widely predicted, a bunch of black-clad anarchists showed up and started throwing punches.

Just as those who felt anxiety or dread following Trump's unexpected election victory took comfort in rallying alongside those of a similar mindset, the president's supporters used the day as a chance to come together around their shared morals and values.

"He does not hate Latinos, he does hate Hispanics, he does not hate Mexicans", a woman who described herself as a Mexican-American supporter of Trump said, addressing the crowd from a small stage. In many towns and cities, the rallies did not draw more than a few hundred people, and some were at risk of being outnumbered by small groups of anti-Trump protesters that gathered to shout against the rallies.

Some of those in attendance, and the injured, suggested that Berkeley police had waited too long to intervene, but Chakko said they held back initially because they thought their involvement would cause an escalation.

In Ohio, Trump supporter Margaret Howe, 57, of Pataskala, said she increasingly fears civil war. "He needs to know that we're all behind him, still, no matter what they try and do to him", said Shelly Schwab of Northeast Philadelphia.

"We are here today to declare Donald J. Trump is our president", said state Rep. Kathy Lohmer, R-Stillwater. Police said there are multiple victims of assault, but didn't give a number or the magnitude of their injuries. "I've seen some blood and a lot of people have been tear gassed". Civic Center Park even got off the ground, with pro- and anti-Trump forces facing off in sporadic violent skirmishes for almost four hours.

"We're going to confront and defeat the Trump movement", protect organizer Benjamin Lynch said.

Military veteran Jeff Godines, of Davenport, also discussed his concerns about military readiness and President Trump's hopes and plans to restructure it.

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

"Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally", Trump tweeted.

Heavy security kept both events peaceful.

At one point, a smoke bomb was thrown, spreading a smelly blue cloud that scattered the crowd.
