The melees started nearly as soon as Trump supporters arrived at the Martin Luther King Jr. She said the rally was worth the trip.
The city of Berkeley released a statement, saying that because of the nature of the crowd, police were not always able to make immediate arrests without inciting further violence or injuring bystanders.
Protesters were also on hand at the pro-Trump rally Saturday March 4, 2017 at the state Capitol. Hours later, anti-Trump protesters clashed with police in front of the Four Seasons hotel where Trump met with members of the Republican National Committee.
In Columbus, a rally at the Ohio Statehouse turned into a clash of words when Trump protesters shouted, "No Trump, No KKK, No Fascist USA" over the supporters' "U-S-A" chants. "It's okay to voice support for the president and the country".
One rally was held at Neshaminy State Park in Bensalem and hosted by People4Trump in Southeast Pennsylvania, a grassroots activist group founded by Worthington, who addressed the crowd of supporters. Another read: "Yes he is our president".
Another rally in Rochester drew about 10 people, and no counterprotesters, the Rochester Post-Bulletin reported.

Powell said he likes Trump because he is not a typical politician and wants to support the president in any way he can.
Christy Trammell of Franklin, Tenn., says she's attending the Nashville demonstration - her first political rally - as a direct response to January's women's marches. What he says he does support is free speech - a right he believes was violated when a lecture by former Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopolous was canceled amid protests and vandalism.
The Minnesota State Patrol arrested six people, five of whom were detained for allegedly setting off firecrackers inside the capitol building, not for fighting, according to Steve Linders, spokesman for the St. Paul Police.
Berkeley police officers in riot gear are standing by at the rally of about 500 pro-Trump supporters and opponents at a park less than a mile from the University of California, Berkeley campus.
