Anti-Trump protesters clashed with police and were pepper-sprayed during a wild night in Washington DC.
A massive crowd of people who are against the president-elect gathered outside the National Press Club, which was holding the ‘DeploraBall’ – a celebratory event organized by Trump supporters from the ‘alt-right’ on Thursday night.
Hundreds of demonstrators were on the street outside the press club, many chanting and holding signs.
One pro-Trump person who was in the area, but did not attend the event, claimed the protesters were violent – accusing one of them of attacking him with a flagpole.
‘I was wearing my “Make America Great Again” hat, and a white male came up behind me and swung at me with a flagpole – I kind of blacked out for a minute,’ 21-year-old James Allsup told Fox News.
‘Before I knew it my head was gushing blood – there’s blood on my Trump hat.’
