Hundreds show up for dueling BLM, Trump rallies in Greensburg

GREENSBURG, Pa. — Hundreds of people turned out for dueling rallies for Black Lives Matter and in support of President Donald Trump.

Channel 11′s crew at the scene said things were mostly peaceful at the Greensburg events until a shouting match broke out between the two groups.

The rally for Trump was meant to be a “patriotic celebration” and show support for the president’s claims of voter fraud, according to organizers. Organizers of the Black Lives Matter event have been holding regular rallies at the Westmoreland County courthouse for several months.
