Pro-Trump March Organizer Pepper-Sprayed by Protester
A pro-Trump rally turned violent in Huntington Beach, California, over the weekend, as counter-protesters doused marchers with pepper spray.
Three people were arrested on suspicion of illegal use of pepper spray and a fourth person was arrested on suspicion of assault and battery, according to Captain Kevin Pearsall of the California State Parks Police.
One of the people who was pepper sprayed was Jennifer Sterling, one of the organizers of the rally.
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Sterling said the event was intended to bring people together to show their support for President Trump his agenda, and our nation's military and first responders.
"It was a beautiful, beautiful celebration," Sterling said. "It was just unfortunate that we had a few bad kids out there that decided to be bullies."
She said that approximately 20 "thugs" wearing masks showed up, and they were looking for trouble.
It didn't take long for scuffles to break out and for some of the protesters to use pepper spray.
"They were violent bullies, and they were the ones that were arrested," Sterling said. "Not anyone in our group was arrested."
She said what happened to her and her fellow Trump supporters was criminal, but she's going to continue standing up for what she believes is right.
"The good will outweigh the bad," Sterling said. "With God and law and order and respect ... our country could be great again."
