WASHINGTON, DC- On Saturday Black Lives Matter protesters confronted Trump supporters at a “Million MAGA March” on Saturday in Washington, DC.
One of the protestors, who assaulted multiple pro-Trump demonstrators, has been identified as a journalism student at Howard University.
Brittany S. McAlister, 29, was captured on video kicking and punching Trump supporters throughout the demonstration. McAlister is a third year journalism student at Howard University and a self-proclaimed freelance journalist.

McAlister was seen early Saturday morning giving a speech at Black Lives Matter Plaza against President Trump and his supporters. The radical leftist group “Refuse Fascism” spoke about McAlister’s speech in a, now deleted, tweet saying:
“DC native [Brittany McAlister] out here on Black Lives Matter Plaza in the middle of a fascist #MillionMAGAMarch letting Trump and his followers know he lost and take his white supremacist ideology up out of here!! MAGA Racism has no place here!”
McAlister appeared on social media later in the day as well where she is seen assaulting multiple pro-Trump supporters. First, another Black Lives Matter protester, Kenneth Wayne DeBerry, snuck up behind a man and punched him in the face. The man then fell to the ground unconscious. McAlister took this as an opportunity to run up to the clearly injured man and kick him in the head.

President Trump later retweeted a video of the attack that was captioned:
“Are these so-called ‘peaceful protestors’ CNN told us about?
So much for Joe Biden’s ‘unity’”

Less than an hour later the “journalist” decided to attack yet another demonstrator for no apparent reason. McAlister took a leaf from DeBerry’s book and punched a Trump supporter in the back of the head. The Howard University student then joyfully skipped away from the woman she assaulted.

The DC Police Department released a statement claiming that multiple arrests have been made in conjunction with the assault on Trump supporters. However, the department has not yet arrested McAlister for her role in the violent attacks.
MPD announces arrests have been made in an Aggravated Assault offense that occurred on 11/14/20 in the 1700 b/o I Street, Northwest.
This case remains under investigation.
Have info? Call (202) 727-9099/text 50411
— DC Police Department (@DCPoliceDept) November 15, 2020
In a press release the Metropolitan Police Department included a picture of McAlister and other rioters marking them as “additional suspects” that “were captured by a surveillance camera,”
The department also stated:
“Anyone who can identify these individuals or who has knowledge of this incident should take no action but call police at (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to the Department’s TEXT TIP LINE at 50411.”
The statement then offered a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of these criminals:
“Crime Solvers of Washington, DC currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for a crime committed in the District of Columbia.”
In a statement to Fox News on McAlister’s actions Howard University condemned “all forms of violence and abhorrent behavior.”
The university asserted:
“The University has stringent policies and procedures in place to investigate potential wrongdoing and will take the appropriate action against any student found to be in violation of our Code of Conduct,”
Right now it is unclear if McAlister will face consequences at the university level as well for her violent crimes.
President Trump also commented on the abhorrent actions by several Black Lives Matter protestors on Saturday. The president labeled the rioters “ANTIFA scum” and claimed that the violent gang purposefully waited until most of the pro-Trump supporters left to begin their attacks:
“ANTIFA SCUM ran for the hills today when they tried attacking the people at the Trump Rally, because those people aggressively fought back. Antifa waited until tonight, when 99% were gone, to attack innocent #MAGA People. DC Police, get going — do your job and don’t hold back!!!”

Young female Trump supporter brutally beaten at women’s march in Washington DC
WASHINGTON, DC – Isabella DeLuca, the Outreach Director for the Republicans for National Renewal, was in Washington, DC to show her support for President Donald Trump and his nomination for the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett.
Her views were disliked by members of the Women’s March and allegedly Black Lives Matter, who attacked her because of her opinion.
Isabella DeLuca, a young Trump supporter, was attacked today at the Woman’s March.
She was brutally beaten by the “tolerant” Left.
Her attackers must be brought to justice.
— Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) October 18, 2020
DeLuca alleges that she was in the nation’s capital holding a Trump reelection banner when an older woman attacked her and stole the banner. DeLuca told the National File:
“The first woman was a white older woman – she had glasses on, a glittery bedazzled Black Lives Matter shirt. She looked like she could’ve been a grandma, honestly.”
The altercation started when the woman alleged stole DeLuca’s Trump banner and she tried to get it back. DeLuca alleged that she attempted to retrieve the banner and the older woman began to punch and choke her.
DeLuca claimed that she did not fight back as the woman was much older and she did not want to hurt her, but she was not about to let someone steal her Trump banner. While trying to get the banner back, another woman jumped into the mix and began hitting and punching DeLuca.
After the fight, both attackers fled the scene and DeLuca went to receive medical attention for her injuries. DeLuca alleges that she received head and neck injuries and now has blurry vision.
If the allegations of DeLuca are true, it is yet another shocking example of liberal people who preach equality and understanding of all yet cannot deal with anyone who supports something they do not. One would think that they would be welcoming and just agree to disagree.
Women march against Trump and Republicans in major US cities https://t.co/MDsHTg1Ami

The Women’s March was in Washington, DC to protest Barrett’s confirmation hearings. Their march started on a parade route that started near the White House and eventually ended at the National Mall.
The Executive Director for the Women’s March, Rachel O’Leary Carmona, started out the speech stating:
“His [President Trump] presidency began with women marching and now it’s going to end with women voting. Period…The first Women’s March in 2017 was historic. Now, four years later…with 17 days to go [until election day], we’re going to finish what we started.”
Pictures of the event show a sea of women walking around the capital carrying several signs, ranging from women’s rights (which was settled decades ago) to anti-Trump slogans. Organizers for the event are convinced that they are the reason why President Trump will be defeated in November.
This family came from Boston to attend the Supreme Court protests as well as today’s @womensmarch. Their mother says this is her daughter’s third #WomensMarch and her son’s second. #WomensMarch2020 @wusa9 #RBG #johnlewis pic.twitter.com/rn8TRsiRir

Sonja Spoo, the director of Reproductive Rights Campaigns at UltraViolet, said:
“When we vote him out, come 3 November, there is no choice. Donald Trump will not get to choose whether he stays in power. That is not his power, that is our power. We are the hell and the high water. Donald Trump is leaving office, there is no choice for him.”
The march in DC was not the only one that was being held in the country. There were additional smaller ones that were reportedly happening in all fifty states, including in New York.

In Manhattan, roughly 300 people set up around Manhattan’s Washington Square to show their support for Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden. Which is really shocking because large groups are banned in the city because of COVID-19 concerns, but that did not stop people from congregating.
Yvonne Shackleton, one of the women who attended the event, said:
“It’s really important to be here and try to encourage people to vote out Trump and his misogynistic policies, especially now, with Covid, when a lot of people are isolated.”
