Video shows one of the protesters, organized by a political group called Refuse fascism to sing “America was never the great” and tried to ignite the flag — to trump supporters to intervene, KABC-TV in Los Angeles reported.

Two men have been seen, the fall short of each other to the police quickly. Several other smaller adjustments also break out and officers separating the two groups, in order to defuse the situation. The two men were temporarily detained, but not arrested, KABC-TV reported. No one was seriously hurt.

A trump card pendant with a red “Keep America Great” hat and a black “MAGA” T-shirt KABC-TV said he was attacked by an anti-Trump protester.

“I didn’t know what was going on,” Harim Uzziel, told the station. “I saw a scuffle. One of them came up on the sidewalk and he started punching me and attack me. I had a camera in each hand so I wasn’t able to defend myself.”

Another trump pendant, Gregg Donovan, said he bought a $1,000 ticket for the president’s fundraiser, but could not participate because the event was overbooked. He was told his money would be refunded, so he decided to show up in the Beverly Hills Hotel to show his support for Trump.

“All my years, I’ve never seen that,” Donovan told KCBS-TV in Los Angeles. “I was very disappointed from both sides. I took a neutral stance. I just stood there with my shield all the time, but that the flag hurt really burn.”

He also commented on WABC, explains why he supports trump for re-election in 2020.

“What he has TV done for this country,” Donovan said, this time, on KABC. “The respect we receive from all over the world. I know this because I am a tour guide in Hollywood now. I see all the people from all over the world. If I say, ‘Welcome to the United States of America,” you look happy.”
