USA: Protesters and Trump supporters face off at Trump rally

United States, Hershey
December 11, 2019 at 09:16 GMT +00:00 · Published

Protesters and supporters of US President Donald Trump exchanged insults as protesters burned Trump flags outside a campaign rally in Hershey, Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

Anti-Trump demonstrators were holding banners, chanting, and calling for the president's impeachment, as Trump campaign flags were set ablaze. Counter protesters chanting in favour of a new term for the President and wearing MAGA (Make America Great Again) caps were seen on site.

Protesters forced Owen Shroyer, a host on the far-right conspiracy theory website Infowars, to leave the demonstration.

"You just hate America, that's what your problem is, you hate America, you hate the record economy growth, you hate the record low unemployment, you hate the fact that American patriotism is back. It triggers you," Shroyer said through a megaphone.

The protest against Trump outside his rally in Pennsylvania, comes as the president is facing impeachment sparked by an official whistleblower complaint over a phone call in which Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate the son of democratic candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden.
