Nine days after anti-Donald Trump student protesters interrupted the first "PSU Students For Trump" meeting, supporters of the leading Republican presidential candidate returned the favor and confronted an anti-Trump rally on the Portland State campus, with the help of right-wing conspiracy theorists from Infowars.

The anti-Trump folks met at 1:30 at Urban Center Plaza on the PSU campus. The pro-Trump folks met outside the PSU student union building, and marched the few blocks together to confront their adversaries soon after. Each side yelled at the other from opposite ends of the plaza for a few minutes before approaching each other and yelling face-to-face.

Infowars' Joe Biggs used his megaphone to chastise the anti-Trump crowd for shutting down the April 7 PSU Students For Trump meeting. Most of the Infowars crowd used their phones to live-stream the event. People yelled at each other for about a half hour, before the pro-Trump crowd, led by Biggs, marched around the PSU campus. The anti-Trump crowd followed in a counter-protest of the counter-protest.

Here are some pictures from the event (and follow the PSU Vanguard for their coverage):
