A group participating in a pro-President Donald Trump march were chased out of Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington, D.C. by counter-protesters Saturday afternoon, with some incidents requiring intervention from the police.

Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) officers kept the counter-protesters and demonstrators participating in the pro-Trump march away from each other for the most part, though a few Trump supporters passing through Black Lives Matter Plaza were harassed by protesters.

Members of the Proud Boys and the AP III, also known as three percenters, marched along with other the pro-Trump demonstrators.

Thousands of Trump supporters attended the “Million MAGA March” last month, NPR reported. Few wore masks or practiced social distancing.

Proud Boys members shouted “fuck Antifa” at anyone who wasn’t wearing pro-Trump clothing that passed by the Hyatt Place on K Street, where several members of the group were staying. Multiple Trump supporters congregated on the sidewalk outside the hotel, where they drank alcohol and a few smoked a substance that smelled like marijuana out of a pipe near the hotel’s boarded up revolving door.
