President Trump arrived for a fundraiser in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night and a bunch of bent out of shape protesters got in a clash with Trump supporters outside the event.

Multiple fights took place in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel after protesters set fire to the American flag. Video shows Beverly Hills police officers trying to keep the two groups from fighting. 

“All my years, I’ve never seen that,” said Gregg Donovan, a Trump supporter, told KCAL9. “I was very disappointed in both sides. I took a neutral stance. I just stood there with my sign the whole time, but the burning of the flag really hurt.”

 

Several people were reportedly detained, but no one was arrested after the fights were cleared.

As for the event, KCAL9 reports:

Trump was nearby attending a fundraiser hosted by real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer, who was a major Republican donor during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Tickets to the fundraiser reportedly start at $1,000 for individuals and go up to $100,000 for couples who will also get to attend a VIP reception and have a photo opportunity with the president.

The Beverly Hills fundraising event will be one of four across the state during this trip, and the GOP says they expect to raise more than $15 million.
