NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Two people were arrested as protesters clashed with supporters of President Donald Trump during a rally at the Tennessee Capitol.

WPLN reports (https://bit.ly/2mRr8SG ) that at Saturday’s pro-Trump rally, the groups at times cursed at each other and made physical contact, which state troopers broke up.

Dozens of officers were on site and a law enforcement helicopter hovered overhead. Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Bill Miller said someone was arrested for stealing two Trump shirts, and an anti-Trump protester was arrested for trying to incite a riot and calling for violence.

Several Republican lawmakers and other figures spoke at the event.

One Trump opponent took another approach. He brought camping chairs, held a sign that said “Talk to a Democrat” and sat with Trump supporters to discuss their differences.
