Tensions are high at a Southern California park where demonstrators for and against Donald Trump gathered near a fundraiser attended by the president.

A few hundred people rallied Tuesday evening in Beverly Hills, including anti-Trump protesters who hoisted signs that read “Treason,” ″Impeach” and “Trump U R Fired.”

At one point a man wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat claimed he had been hit by a protester on the other side. Police stepped in to diffuse the situation.

Jennifer Medina says she attended the rally to speak out against Trump’s immigration policies. She was among a group of protesters who chanted “Say it now, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here.”

Trump is at a fundraiser at a Beverly Hills estate where guests paid up to $250,000 to attend.

President Donald Trump is spending his evening in Southern California at a high-dollar fundraiser hosted by the co-chairman of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Guests are paying up to $250,000 to attend the event held at the Beverly Hills home of Ed and Shari Glazer.

The money raised will go to a joint fundraising committee that benefits Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee.

Los Angeles is the second stop of Trump’s maiden visit Tuesday to the state as president. He spent the afternoon in San Diego touring prototypes for his stalled border wall.

The Los Angeles Police Department is warning about traffic snarls along the president’s route to Glazer’s home.
