Anti-Trump protesters waiting to intercept MAGA caravan violently clash with NYPD… as convoy halts traffic in New Jersey (VIDEOS)

Tensions between the demonstrators and police hit a boiling point in the afternoon as video showed officers resorting to pushing and arresting protesters who refuse to comply, some of whom even hit the officers back with umbrellas and other objects.

Other footage shows some protesters angrily yelling at the cops, one even saying, “I hope your children get raped and killed,” a video that has especially gotten attention from conservatives, including Donald Trump Jr.

Protesters also chanted, “how do you spell Nazi? NYPD,” while they marched.

Multiple people were reportedly arrested during the clashes. Some witnesses reported seeing journalists being arrested in the fray, but the NYPD denied doing so in a public statement, saying “all arrested individuals from today’s protests have been verified to not be NYPD credentialed members of the press.” This, however, does not mean independent journalists not arrested.

More video shows that the group itself that gathered, reportedly in the hundreds, was quite divided since they did not reach their goal of actually intercepting the pro-Trump caravan. Dissenters in the group can be heard yelling about a “white woman” leading the group and how the gathering accomplished “nothing.”

The pro-Trump caravan meanwhile stopped traffic momentarily while on the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey.

The caravan was reportedly miles long, with many vehicles sporting pro-Trump flags. Video of the cars and trucks stopped on the highway show supporters leaving their vehicles and waving their flags.

The stoppage, which some reported was due to police, angered Trump critics online.
