>> Fist fights near Michigan State University broke out Monday, in the latest clash between supporters of Alt-right leader Richard Spencer and those protesting his white supremacist views. Spencer's speech at the university went ahead but not before a protest erupted as about 40 backers of Spencer were met by about 500 demonstrators.

Spencer, an outspoken supporter of Trump during the 2016 campaign, rose out of relative obscurity after widely circulated videos showed some Trump supporters giving Nazi style salutes to him during a gathering in Washington to celebrate the Republican candidates electoral win. Trump condemned them meeting. It's not the first time a protest like this has broken out.

In October, Florida declared a state of emergency to guard against violence between Spencer's supporters and hundreds of protestors as Spencer gave a speech at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Two months before that, a 20 year old man said to harbor Nazi sympathies drove his car into a crowd of counter protesters after White Supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virgina killing a 32 year old woman.
