She said the rally was worth the trip.
"President Trump has been all talk and no action", Mike Gwin, state Democratic Party spokesman, said in a statement. Some Trump supporters followed them out, jeering insults.
Some hoped a day of peaceful gathering could heal the increasing partisan divide that has sorted liberals and conservatives into opposing camps that interact with one another less and less. "One pro-Trump supporter was apparently sprayed in the face with Mace".
Rallies were scheduled in about 50 cities, including Las Vegas, according to organizers.
The demonstration turned ugly at times, with several fights breaking out.
President Trump has been in office for a little over a month and a half. Another read: "Yes he is our president".
Videos show Trump protesters chanting, "No Donald Trump, no KKK, no racist, fascist U.S.", while his backers countered, "Build the wall". Near Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach Post reported that people on both sides exchanged profanity.
Even on that, Trump supporters disagreed. There were more than 200 people there.
"We're just showing here today that Donald Trump has the support, whereas lot of the people and media are saying he doesn't have the support".
An estimated 1,200-1,500 attended the rally.
Prior to the Berkeley event, both protesters and counter-protesters were wary of how the event would go. In many towns and cities, the rallies did not draw more than a few hundred people, and some were at risk of being outnumbered by small groups of anti-Trump protesters that gathered to shout against the rallies.
Asked if police had any plans to prevent violence between different factions of demonstrators on Saturday, Frankel said, "The department is prepared for a number of different contingencies". "It's a march for free speech", said rally organizer Rich Black, adding it was also in response to the Yiannopolous protest.
Supporters of President Trump are gathering at locations across the US on Saturday, in a bid to challenge what rally organizers call the country's "seditious fringe". American flags and Trump-Pence flags flapped in the wind.
"We've got a president that is actually following down to the letter what he promised he would do", said Kaufmann.
"I thought it was mandatory that each and every one of us, stand up for Trump, President Trump", one supporter said.
