Hundreds at a Second Pro- Trump Rally in Portland on Labor Day

Hundreds of the president’s supporters gathered for an ‘Oregon for Trump’ caravan rally on Labor Day. A second pro- Trump rally held after the death of one Right-wing activist on Monday.

The event came a week after a man shot and killed Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of the far-right group Patriot Prayer, at a similar vehicle rally in Portland.

Danielson’s suspected killer, Michael Forest Reinoehl, was fatally shot by police Thursday. Reinoehl was a supporter of antifa — shorthand for anti-fascists and an umbrella description for far-left-leaning militant groups.

Wide protests are ongoing in Portland since the death of a black man, named George Floyd in May.

Vehicles waving flags for President Trump, QAnon and the Thin Blue Line gathered at Clackamas Community College around noon Monday for the rally.

On Monday, hundreds of pro-Trumpers gathered in Oregon City and drove down to Salem waving American flags and donning MAGA gear for miles.

Some of the rally-goers blamed Democrats for the ongoing rioting and looting in Portland, which have gone on for more than 100 nights straight. The caravan avoided actually entering the city of Portland in an effort t “help keep everyone safe.”

In a statement on the event’s Facebook page, organizers confirmed local law enforcement stood guard at the starting and ending locations to provide a “fun, safe and peaceful event for all participants.” Meanwhile, local media outlets confirmed there were no counter protesters present at Monday’s event.
