Counter-Protesters Burn Trump Flags, Attack Trump Supporters At ‘Million MAGA March’

Counter-protesters against the “Million MAGA March” in Washington, D.C. set fire to Trump flags, hats and pro-police paraphernalia Saturday evening.

Thousands of President Donald Trump’s backers flocked to D.C. to support the president despite his dwindling chances of remaining in the White House in January. The protests remained peaceful throughout Saturday morning and afternoon, though Trump supporters and counter-protesters got into frequent shouting matches.

Some counter-protesters also set fire to MAGA hats, Back the Blue flags, and various other conservative symbols.

Wow. Someone just threw a firework at two Trump supporters dining outside at PJ Clarke’s here in DC — everyone ran inside and workers locked the doors

A crowd surrounded this man and there was an altercation as he was forcibly escorted out. You can hear the big bang of the firework behind me in this video: pic.twitter.com/E3HYGsSlaT
