Violence Erupts in NYC at Jewish Event Supporting President

Altercations between the President’s supporters and counter protesters turned violent in New York City on Sunday, resulting in seven arrests during the afternoon’s Jews for Trump rally.

Videos shared to Twitter showed those who participated in the event—a large convoy that saw vehicles driving through Brooklyn and Manhattan with American flags, and signs demonstrating support for President Donald Trump‘s reelection, clearly displayed—encountered opposition from demonstrators along sections of their route.

One confrontation, which took place in the Midtown area near Times Square, escalated after a group of counter protesters surrounded a vehicle taking part in the convoy. Demonstrators appeared to douse the vehicle in red paint. A message posted alongside one of the social media videos said counter protesters also tore flags from vehicles supporting the convoy.

Footage showed individuals inside the car exit their vehicle before arguments with counter protesters became physical. A man wearing a red sweatshirt with “Keep America Great” printed across the chest could be seen tackling a woman over a low barricade near the side of the boulevard, although the specific catalyst for the quarrel was unclear.

Another incident involved a woman pepper spraying a Jewish family of seven, including young children; she was subsequently arrested.
