Portland Airport Protesters Knock Out Trump Supporter
Portland, OR – A Portland airport protest against President Trump’s Extreme Vetting order turned violent as the “protesters” attacked Trump supporters.
The incident occurred Sunday night at around 5 PM. Preliminary information is that a group of Trump supporters showed up at the airport as counter-protesters. A group of violent protesters broke off and aggressively advanced on the Trump supporters. Under assault, the supporters tried to retreat into the airport, where one of them was hit in the head and knocked unconscious.
Airline employees responded to help keep people back. Finally police officers needed to shoot rubber bullets to get the crowd to disperse.
Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley, Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici and Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler were in attendance at the protest.
