Representatives of the Revolutionary Communist Party of the United States burned the national flag on Independence Day. Fox News reported.
Opponents of Donald Trump’s policy made it near the White House, chanting, “America has never been great.” Law enforcement agencies immediately intervened and put out the fire.
After the flag was put out and the group under the leadership of activist Joey Johnson clashed with supporters of the incumbent President of the United States, chanting “Trump 2020”. The US secret service has arrested at least two activists.
The incident occurred an hour before Trump’s speech at the Lincoln Memorial. The President of the United States was to make a speech in honor of the holiday at the event “Salute to America.”
