A pro-Trump demonstration on Saturday in Huntington Beach, California, broke into violence, with anti-Trump demonstrators with pepper spray brawling with pro-Trump protesters.
At the outset of the march, a permitted event that began at noon, there was simple antagonism, with the MAGA crowd and the anti-Trump group trading jeers.

The violence erupted, according to the Los Angeles Times, when an anti-Trump protester fired pepper spray at the organizer of the event. Afterward, the black mask-clad protester was set upon by the pro-Trump crowd.
In the videos tweeted out by reporters on the scene, pro-Trump demonstraters can be seen swinging “Trump” flags at the heads of the anti-Trump protesters.
