Protesters clash at violent pro-Trump rally

Violence erupted at a “Make America Great Again” rally in California Saturday when supporters of President Trump clashed with a group of counter-protesters.

Multiple skirmishes broke out after a group of black-clad Trump haters confronted dozens of the President’s supporters as they marched through Huntington Beach.

At least two Trump fans were hit with pepper-spray — setting in motion a wild fracas that saw the President’s supporters attacking a masked man with their fists, feet and flags.

Four counter-protesters were arrested, three for illegal use of pepper spray and one for assault and battery, authorities said.

A video obtained by the Los Angeles Times showed a group of Trump supporters force to the ground and then pummel a man dressed in all black.

More than 1,500 miles away, counter-protesters also caused chaos at a Trump rally in Omaha.

Black-clad demonstrators clashed with police after roughly 100 Trump supporters gathered near the Douglas County Courthouse, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

More than a dozen officers, some on horses and bikes, attempted to block the path of the counter-protesters. The scene quickly grew tense, with the officers firing pepper balls that released a stinging gas, the paper reported.

At least three people were arrested, authorities said. NYDAILYNEWS
