The demonstration of support turned to chaos as fights broke out between protesters and Trump supporters family.
A family of seven, including four children, was gunned down by rioters on Sunday as they participated in a “Jews for Trump” rally in New York. A family member told Fox News that the unprovoked attack occurred while the family was driving down 5th Avenue with their windows down and Trump flags flying.
The man, who asked to remain anonymous, fearing that his family might be attacked, said a car had stopped next to them and spilled pepper spray on their car.
The man said the perpetrator was chasing him down 5th Avenue, trying to spray him with pepper spray again. His mother detained the officer and the suspect was arrested.
The man told Fox News that the children were “injured” and were still “coughing” from the remains.
The meeting was one of many violent clashes between protesters and protesters.
The Jewish Telegraph Agency said the convoy was to march across several Orthodox Jewish communities ahead of a planned event at Brooklyn Marine Park hosted by Boris Epstein, Trump campaign adviser and co-chairman of Jewish Voices for Trump.
A plethora of disturbing convoy video clips posted on @NYScanner show crowds are not overly supportive of the rows of cars with 2020 Trump flags raised.
One video shows a man throwing eggs at a convoy in Brooklyn.
Another video shows pedestrians throwing stones at cars with the Trump flag.
Obviously the animosity lasted all day. In several videos, people can be heard shouting curses at the Jews for Trump participants.
One man – on a bicycle, no less – looks so angry that Trump’s cars overload traffic in Brooklyn that he resorts to knocking down a window.
A woman was arrested in Manhattan for allegedly using pepper spray on a column, police said.
Later, a fight broke out in the middle of the street between supporters and opponents of Trump. In one video, masked protesters were seen gathering in a car painted in red as a YMCA exploded in the background.
“Go home! We’re not here!” Someone shouts in the crowd.
“Come back to Long Island!” the other person screams.
A video posted on Twitter shows a caravan of Trump supporters led by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani showing how eggs are thrown at him.
In the video, you can see Giuliani rolling down the window on the passenger side of the car. He has a short conversation with a police sergeant before the car drives away. The protester can be heard shouting curses, as did the former mayor.
EXPRESS LANGUAGE WARNING:
Several police officers can be seen struggling to separate the opposing sides before handcuffing the cyclist.
The fight between opponents continues, people are fighting between traffic dividers. In the confusion, a masked protester appears to hit a Trump supporter in the head. When a masked criminal tries to escape, another person knocks him down, causing him to fall and hit his head on the ground.
The police later declared the meeting illegal and made several arrests.
Chief Terence Monahan said later Sunday that NYPD detectives are investigating a stone throwing incident.
