‘Jews For Trump’ car parade stirs protests, fights on way to Marine Park
Skirmishes broke out between supporters and opponents of President Donald Trump as a ‘Jews For Trump’ convoy of hundreds of cars draped with American flags and Trump 2020 banners rolled slowly through Brooklyn and Manhattan on Sunday afternoon.
The caravan traveled from Coney Island to the Trump Tower in Manhattan before heading to a rally in Brooklyn’s Marine Park. Videos shared on Twitter showed several protesters pelting the vehicles with eggs or stones, snatching flags and shouting insults.
In one video showing physical fights between several people, police officers detain an unidentified man and protesters chant “let him go.” Another video showed a small group of people throwing objects from a Brooklyn highway overpass at vehicles bedecked with Trump flags.
Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani briefly greeted supporters from the passenger seat of a car driving near Trump Tower during the parade, videos show.
