    Hundreds of anti-Trump protesters remained in downtown San Diego after his Friday campaign rally, with police reporting clashes between pro-Trump and anti-Trump demonstrators.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – At least 18 people received medical attention and at least two were arrested during Friday clashes between demonstrators in San Diego, according to The Los Angeles Times.

    ​The newspaper said that Trump left the area at about 04:30 pm local time (23:30 GMT) on Friday, but hundreds of his opponents remained in downtown San Diego, continuing protesting after his speech, despite police orders to leave.

    On Friday, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic rival of the presumptive Republican nominee, told a San Jose crowd that the United States has a duty to other nations, that look to America as a beacon of strength and stability, to defeat Trump.
