VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Scores of people have rallied in Virginia Beach in a show of support for President Donald Trump.

The Virginian-Pilot reports (https://bit.ly/2lrmX2J ) around 200 Trump backers showed up Saturday for the event at Mount Trashmore Park. It was one of many March 4 Trump demonstrations held around the country.

Some held American flags and others wore “Make America Great Again” hats and Trump t-shirts.

Also in attendance were some 100 counter-protesters, who quietly marched in from a nearby parking lot carrying a banner with the words “No Hate in Our Town.” Some wore tape over their mouths and they stood nearly silent behind a barricade.

Dozens of police officers were mainly on the fringe of the event.
