Pro-Trump supporters and demonstrators opposing the president had been at the site from 3 p.m. on Tuesday. Three hours later, things got heated when some of the anti-Trump protesters set the flag on fire and several fights broke out, forcing police to intervene.

While the fights were taking place, Trump was at a nearby fundraiser hosted by real estate developer Geoffrey Palmer, who was a major donor to his 2016 campaign.

Gregg Donovan, a Trump supporter, told CBSLA: "All my years, I've never seen that. I was very disappointed in both sides. I took a neutral stance. I just stood there with my sign the whole time, but the burning of the flag really hurt."

Anti-Trump protester Tony Blackstone explained why he turned up to voice his opposition to the president.

CNN reported that ahead of Trump's visit, a White House official floated the idea of deregulating housing, which Newsom saw as a dig at Los Angeles' homelessness problem.

"He's got to find the areas where we're not performing and that's the issue of poverty, affordability and homelessness, and exploit those as a way of tearing down a new governing philosophy."

"Stay out of our way. Let California continue not to just survive, but thrive ... despite everything you're doing to try to put sand in the gears of our success," he told CNN.

There is no love lost between Trump and Newsom. Last year, the president called him a "clown," prompting Newsom to call Trump "Pennywise," the clown from the movie and Stephen King horror novel It.

Trump will end his tour by visiting a section of his much-touted border wall in Otay Mesa, where he will spend about an hour. Trump went there in March 2018 to look at prototypes of the barrier.
