Trump Protesters Clash With Police Outside Trump Rally

Police moved in to control the crowd as protests turned violent outside a Trump event in California.

Police arrested 20 people outside a Donald Trump rally in California Thursday night amid the worst violence since last month's cancelation of a campaign event in Chicago.

Protests at Trump rallies have occasionally ended in clashes. In March, a planned Trump rally in Chicago descended into chaos, with fistfights breaking out between supporters and opponents of the controversial candidate.
