St. Paul police detained at least five people for lighting fireworks to disrupt a weekend pro-Trump rally at the State Capitol.

Their goal to show support for president Donald Trump.

"We're just showing here today that Donald Trump has the support, whereas lot of the people and media are saying he doesn't have the support".

Minor scuffles broke out Saturday in the rotunda of the Minnesota State Capitol at a pro-Trump rally that drew several hundred supporters of the president and a smaller group of counterprotesters.

Liz Kimmel braved the cold weather to show her backing for President Trump.

A rally to show support for President Trump was met by an equal number of opponents Saturday, trading jeers, taunts and punches at a Berkeley park.

Lourdes Leon added: "Like it or not, he is our president and we should unite and support him".

Several pro-Trump supporters say they got up at 4 a.m.to drive up from Orange County, Pacifica and Livermore.

Some of those in attendance, and the injured, suggested that Berkeley police had waited too long to intervene, but Chakko said they held back initially because they thought their involvement would cause an escalation. "I'm still keeping an open mind on those things, because even though I voted for him, I'm keeping my eye on him, you know what I mean?" said Morris.

Robin Lopez, Rajon Rondo , Nikola Mirotic, and Cristiano Felicio all contributed to the win with double-figure scoring efforts. The last time Cleveland won a game without James on the floor was March 16, 2016, when the Cavs defeated the Dallas Mavericks.

"We all love our country and just want the best for it", Stan Smith, of DeWitt said.

"He's doing a good job, I think", Trump supporter Trent Herbert told Roth.

Calling themselves the "silent majority", and "deplorables", the Trump supporters Saturday cheered the president's proposed border wall with Mexico, his economic plans, and his choice of Neil Gorsuch to be the next Supreme Court justice.

"We thought the country was going the wrong way and we have some hope now", Rose Smith said.

A stage set up along the waterfront featured numerous speakers, including a former U.S. Secret Service agent, a KFMB radio host; Gina Loudon, TV personality, writer and speaker; and Patti Siegmann, president of Oceanside Republican Women Federated. "It doesn't matter that much illegal or legal; they're not really compatible civilizations all the time".

BPD released a Nixle alert about 3:34 p.m., in which it advised the public that the demonstration had begun marching on Allston Way, heading eastbound toward the UC Berkeley campus.

At one point, a smoke bomb was thrown, spreading a smelly blue cloud that scattered the crowd.
