    A "USA Freedom Rally" in support of the president was supposed to take place at Beverly Gardens Park, but was apparently disturbed by counterprotesters, reportedly including Black Lives Matter activists.

    The Beverly Hills Police Department has declared an unlawful assembly near the Beverly Hills Sign after clashes between Trump supporters and counterprotesters.

    ​According to the BHPD, around 40 protesters assembled at Roxbury Park and then marched towards Beverly Gardens Park, where the pro-Trump rally was taking place.

    "A couple of the members got into a violent attack on a pro-Trump member. It was at that point that an unlawful assembly was declared", Lt Max Subin told Fox News.

    The pro-Trump supporter was injured in the face and received treatment from the Beverly Hills Fire Department.

    Footage shared on social media shows a large presence of officers in riot gear formed in a line as counterprotesters arrive at the pro-Trump rally. On the other side, Trump supporters are chanting "USA" and waving American flags. 

    Other videos captured the exact moments of the fight before police interfered to calm it down.
