Donald Trump supporters turned out in Washington DC on Saturday, November 14 for a ‘Pro-Trump rally’ to back his unverified claims of voter fraud in the US election. The rally started at about noon near Freedom Plaza, just east of the White House and headed toward the Supreme Court. 

After the rally far-right group, the ‘Proud Boys’ who were part of the rally, terrorized people by inducing violence on them and allegedly stabbed three people.  Earlier on November 14, the march was largely peaceful. But as the sun went down, snippets of scenes shared on Twitter showed chaos had overtaken areas of the nation’s capital. Fox News reported that one male demonstrator was stabbed multiple times near the intersection of New York Avenue and 11th Street and sustained injuries that were not considered life-threatening. It was not immediately clear which side he was on. 

The ugly scenes lasted went on as the two groups wielded batons and pushed and shoved each other until cops intervened. Another female Black Lives Matter protester was knocked to the ground where she was left lying with blood covering her face as the pro-Trump group filmed her and screamed 'F*** Antifa', reports the Daily Mail. The website reports anti-Trump protesters were seen throwing fireworks and bottles at Trump fans as they dined outside a restaurant at around 6 pm, with one Trump supporter throwing a chair back in retaliation after a firework exploded right beside him. The Trump supporters initially tried to shout back at the large group of protesters gathered around them chanting 'people are dying while you are dining', before being forced to flee inside when the fireworks began.   

Coming back to the MAGA March, the evening saw scattered confrontations and escalating violence as police reported at least 20 arrests as they tried to keep opposing groups separated. The Southern Poverty Law Center has designated the ‘Proud Boys’ as a ‘hate group’. A user shared a video on Twitter captioning it, “Here is the beginning of what happened tonight. #DCProtests.” Another user retweeted the video writing, “I wonder if this video of Proud Boys assaulting random people will get as much traction as that edited video of a Trump supporter getting punched, even though he actually started that fight.” 



 

While Trump ignored the above stated incident, he lashed out against "ANTIFA SCUM" and the media on November 14 night as violence continued in Washington, DC after the rally. In a series of tweets Trump accused Antifa activists of returning under cover of darkness to cause mayhem, claiming the pro-Trump crowd had sent the leftists running "for the hills" during daylight hours. He wrote, “Radical Left ANTIFA SCUM was easily rebuffed today by the big D.C. MAGA Rally crowd, only to return at night, after 99% of the crowd had left, to assault elderly people and families. Police got there, but late. Mayor is not doing her job!”



 

The president also blasted Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, claiming the Democrat was not "doing her job," as he wrote, “ANTIFA SCUM ran for the hills today when they tried attacking the people at the Trump Rally, because those people aggressively fought back. Antifa waited until tonight, when 99% were gone, to attack innocent #MAGA People. DC Police, get going — do your job and don’t hold back!!!” 



 

 

Trump also accused the "Silent Media" of ignoring the Washington clashes, retweeting a message from Republican US Rep Lee Zeldin of New York, who alleged a "total media blackout" as leftists launched "abhorrent" assaults against Trump supporters. “The Silent Media is the Enemy of the People!!!” wrote Trump retweeting another tweet that said, “The President’s supporters have a right to peacefully rally supporting POTUS just like his opponents have that same right. The physical assaults today by violent leftists targeting his supporters is abhorrent. The near total media blackout of the violence is terrible...& telling.”



 

 

 

Daily Caller contributor Matthew Miller shared what he described as an "all out brawl between Proud Boys and Antifa in the streets." The video shows two groups trading blows in an intersection as onlookers chanted profanities. Numerous videos on Twitter showed shouting matches and violence on streets and sidewalks. Another tweet said, “DC Police blocked off BLM again so Trump supporters couldn't get through and were made to go through BLM group which then attacked them.”
