Alt-Right Demonstrators Rally In Portland

An alt-right, pro-Trump rally in downtown Portland Sunday has prompted fears of violent clashes with counter-demonstrators roughly one week after police say a white supremacist fatally stabbed two people on a light-rail train while yelling hate speech. Early in the day, pro-Trump demonstrators and counter protesters gathered and taunted each other while separated by police officers, some in riot gear, on opposite ends of a street in Chapman Square in Downtown Portland. There are three counter protests planned for around the same time during the afternoon. Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who unsuccessfully appealed for free speech rally to be canceled, told the public earlier to “reject violence” at the events. Police have also asked protesters to not bring any weapons or other items like bats and sticks.
