Four Stabbed, One Shot As Trump Supporters Protest In Washington

Washington: Violent clashes between pro-Donald Trump protesters and Black Lives Matter supporters on both sides of the country ended in bloodshed on Saturday.

In Washington, four people were stabbed as violence escalated Saturday night following competing protests during the day. The president’s supporters, including the far-right Proud Boys, had gathered in the afternoon to denounce the results of the 2020 election — baselessly decried as fraudulent for weeks by Trump.

Meanwhile, across the country in Olympia, Washington, a person was shot during similar protests on Saturday.

A person was taken into custody there.

The Washington Fire Department and EMS confirmed local news channels that as of 7 p.m. Saturday, at least nine patients — including four stabbing victims — were transported to area hospitals with injuries connected to demonstrations in the District.

The stabbings took place in the area of 11th Street Northwest and F Street Northwest, about four blocks west of the White House. All four patients are in critical condition, officials said.
