Trump Supporters and Protesters Clash at State Capitol

What started out as competing rallies for and against President Trump at the Oregon State Capitol turned into violent skirmishes over the weekend.

After a group called the Northwest Trump Alliance for Change was granted a permit to stage a rally at the Oregon WWII Memorial in Salem, Oregon Saturday, another group called Salem Stands for Love organized their own rally just down the street on the steps of the Capitol.

What was already a tense atmosphere between two groups turned violent after a group of counter-protestors joined the fray, and now, a Terrebonne man is facing charges for his involvement in the conflict.
