|Washington protests turn violent as Trump assumes presidency - |
By David Lawder and Scott Malone WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Black-clad activists angry about U.S. President Donald Trump's inauguration smashed store and car windows in Washington on Friday and fought with police in riot gear who responded with pepper spray and stun grenades. Police detained about 50 people a few blocks away, as a crowd chanted "Let them go." The number of people who turned out to view the midday swearing-in, on a gray day threatened by rain, appeared to be significantly smaller than the estimated 2 million who turned out for President Barack Obama's first inauguration in 2009.
