    On Saturday, President Trump's supporters gathered for a massive rally in the US capital, demanding another four years for Trump in office and a recount of the votes cast on 3 November.

    Saturday's MAGA rally, though peaceful at the beginning, grew into tensions with counter-protesters, who showed up in the afternoon, intimidating Trump protesters in order to provoke scuffles. 

    Counter-protesters were seen burning Trump items, heckling and later openly harassing Trump supporters, many of whom brought their children to the rally.

    Police had to use physical force and pepper spray to scatter the most aggressive ones, and several arrests were made. Heavy police presence is still at the scene to break up clashes that continue to occur sporadically between the two sides.
