Things got intense in Huntington Beach today when several fights started as protesters confronted a group of marchers showing support for President Trump.
The rally was one of several pro-Trump events being held around the country today under the online banner of #MAGAmarch. Protesters faced off with pro-Trump demonstrators in California, though things turned nasty after a protester reportedly pepper sprayed the march organizer.
The face-off descended into chaos shortly afterwards, and multiple physical confrontations were filmed and uploaded to social media.
