Riot police descended in downtown Portland, Ore., Sunday to bring calm among thousands of demonstrators who converged for competing rallies in the wake of the racially charged stabbing that claimed the lives of two men.
Crowds who gathered in a public square near City Hall for a midday Trump Free Speech Rally, organized by a conservative group called Patriot Prayer, encountered a larger throng of counter-protesters led by immigrant rights, religious and labor groups, who occupied the nearby park.
According to The Associated Press, the pro-Donald Trump group "chanted 'USA' and held banners in support of President Donald Trump," while the counter-protesters drummed, played music and held signs, including, "Our city is greater than hate" and "Black lives matter."
"Some chanted 'love, not hate' and 'Go home, fascists,'" the AP says.
None of the articles I've seen explain WHY Trump supporters were rallying? WTF are Trump supporters rallying at the site of a malicious assault by a bigot on two young (apparently) Muslim girls which resulted in the deaths of two good Samaritans who intervened on the girls' behalf? What does supporting Trump have to do with the incident? It'd be like Hitler supporters rallying after an incident involving Jews.
