More than four dozen anti-Donald Trump protesters have been arrested in Washington, DC for engaging in violence, reported local police on Friday.

 

“Fifty people have been arrested,” a police officer said.

 

Earlier in day, some 500 anti-Trump protesters confronted 100 police officers, who were equipped with batons and tear gas, at a location just several blocks from Capitol Hill where Trump was sworn in as the forty-fifth president of the United States.
