PORTLAND, OR – A large caravan of Trump supporters, armed with guns, paintball gans and industrial-sized cans of pepper spray entered Portland on Saturday. Several confrontations were recorded on video including one instance where BLM protesters shouted “F-ck you” and stole a Trump flag from a passing vehicle. The crowd then began throwing objects at the caravan. One passenger in the caravan retaliated shot the BLM protesters with a paintball gun as others sprayed pepper spray. The caravan sped away without escalating the incident.
