Police had earlier declared the much-hyped demonstration against Purnama, in which 50,000 protesters gathered at the city's largest mosque before taking to the streets in a huge show of force -- a largely peaceful affair.

An anti- Trump rally in Portland, Oregon , revved up as protesters confronted police Thursday night.
