Trucks Flying Trump Flags Drive Through Protest Group in Portland

Hundreds of trucks filled with supporters of US president Donald Trump drove through the city of Portland on August 29, reportedly firing paintball guns at protesters and targeting them with mace.

The pro-Trump truck rally came on the same night that a man was shot and killed, a short distance from where confrontations between the groups had taken place. The man who was shot was reportedly wearing a hat bearing the insignia of Patriot Prayer, a right-wing group based in Portland.

In this video, trucks flying Trump and US flags can be seen driving through a group of people who had been blocking their path through downtown Portland. Separate video of the same incident shows several people pushing back against the front of one advancing truck before getting out of its path.
