ultimately having to separate the two groups. Several people were
initially detained, but none were arrested following the scuffles.
All my years, Ive never seen that, said Gregg Donovan, a Trump
supporter, said. I was very disappointed in both sides. I took a
neutral stance. I just stood there with my sign the whole time, but
the burning of the flag really hurt.
Another man who was there with the protesters said that he understood
the frustrations of those who were also there protesting.
Ive still got family members who are struggling to pay for their
medication, Tony Blackstone, a Trump protester said. Theyre
elderly, and they have to decide whether to pay for their medication
or to pay for their bill, and thats sad.
Trump was nearby attending a fundraiser hosted by real estate
developer Geoffrey Palmer, who was a major Republican donor during the
2016 presidential campaign.
Tickets to the fundraiser reportedly start at $1,000 for individuals
and go up to $100,000 for couples who will also get to attend a VIP
reception and have a photo opportunity with the president.
The Beverly Hills fundraising event will be one of four across the
state during this trip, and the GOP says they expect to raise more
than $15 million.
