Anti-Trump protestors are set to burn an American flag at an undisclosed location near the RNC and take part in a wall building stunt that is aimed to mock Donald Trump for his plan to build a wall on the Mexican-American border. On Tuesday at the RNC in Cleveland, the environment was tame as there were no arrests and only a few scenes of hostility between Trump supporters and protestors. With the anti-Trump stunts, tensions could rise between the two sides.
On Wednesday, anti-racism and anti-government fans that are not in favor of Trump will burn an American flag at an undisclosed location.
A Latino social justice organization will also hold a mock wall building stunt on the city’s Public Square to symbolize Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall on the Mexican-American border, something they see as an act of hate.
A small fight between radio host Alex Jones supporters and anti-Donald Trump protestors broke out on Tuesday afternoon but was quickly quelled when Cleveland police separated the two groups by pushing them back. Afterwards, hundreds of officers stormed in the Public Square equipped with tear gas.
The Revolutionary Communist Party joined the protest and led a police brutality march out of the Public Square.
Despite the hostile atmosphere and tensions between anti-Trump supporters and Trump supporters being so high, only five arrests have been made since the beginning of the RNC, none of which occurred on Tuesday.
