Donald Trump in San Jose: Violent Protest Outside Rally, Hundreds Clash With Police
At the height of the biggest and most violent political protest San Jose has seen in decades, hundreds of people clashed with police and Trump supporters. One young woman was struck in the forehead by a flying metal parking barricade, and police were pelted with traffic cones and water bottles.
Police helicopters circled overhead for more than two hours, commanding the crowds to disperse, while police from numerous Bay Area agencies marched through the heart of downtown San Jose, containing protesters along Park Avenue, Almaden Boulevard and San Carlos Street.
Earlier, inside the convention hall, Trump supporters chanted “Build that wall, build that wall,” as the candidate repeated his call to erect a concrete wall on the border with Mexico.
