Right-wing activists and supporters of President Donald Trump gathered in the Willamette Valley on Monday, caravanning down highways around the Portland area in support of the president and police, and in opposition to protests in Portland this summer. Part of the group broke off and gathered at a smaller event at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem in the afternoon, which quickly spun off into violence and led to multiple arrests. The “Cruise Rally” in support of President Trump began in the parking lot of Clackamas Community College in Oregon City on Monday morning, where several hundred people dressed in red, white and blue, wore “make America great again” caps and carried signs bearing Trump’s likeness. The event was organized by Oregon For Trump 2020, a Facebook page for supporters of President Trump’s candidacy. Speakers at the morning rally often spoke in religious terms, invoking Christianity in their efforts to stand against protesters who have been speaking out against police violence and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement since the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department in May.
