Eleven people were injured, with seven transported to the hospital in unknown condition, Berkeley Police spokesman Byron White told CNN.

About 200 people gathered at a downtown Raleigh plaza to protest Trump's decision, as well as his performance in the White House.

It was not immediately clear what protesters were charged with, or whether there would be more arrests.

Trump, a billionaire property tycoon, released a financial statement but has kept his tax returns private, both during the election campaign and since taking office in January. Organizers for Tax March San Francisco discovered the chicken and re-dubbed it "Chicken Don" to poke fun at the President for being too afraid to release his tax returns.

Police had erected a light, neon-orange plastic barricade at the park between the two sides to separate the groups and were collecting sticks, flagpoles and other objects that protesters had brought, which were banned at the park in advance of the protest.

City officials imposed a one-day rule for the protest.

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people marched through midtown Manhattan and dozens of United States cities on Saturday to demand that Mr Trump release his tax returns and to dispute his claim that the public does not care about the issue. So Trump critics are prepared to make some noise.

The two forces met Saturday during the pro-Trump Patriot Day rally.

For the past 40 years, every USA president and presidential candidate has released tax documents.

Demonstrators came out in large numbers in about 200 other cities, including a few outside the US, according to organizers. "We march because it is in the best interest of the American people to know what financial entanglements and conflicts of interest our leaders have".
