Earlier, Senator Kamala Harris joined protesters outside the White House before the rally turned violent.
Photos emerged on Saturday of demonstrators shouting into megaphones and standing on cars, many holding signs that read "Black Lives Matter" and "Justice for George Floyd."
A WTOP journalist on the scene said that people were being hit with pepper spray and at least one person was tossed to the ground.
Earlier, Trump warned protesters that his administration "will stop mob violence and we’ll stop it cold."

Speaking in Florida, the president blamed the protests on "radical left-wing" groups.
"I will not allow angry mobs to dominate," he said.
On Friday, Trump praised the Secret Service for coming down on "frisky or out of line" protesters "hard" on the first night of demonstrations.
Protesters across the nation have gathered in cities across the US to protest George Floyd's death, after the black man died on Monday when Minnesota cop Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck during an arrest.
"Great job last night at the White House by the U.S. @SecretService," Trump tweeted early Saturday.

"They were not only totally professional, but very cool. I was inside, watched every move, and couldn’t have felt more safe," he said.
He added that the officers "let the 'protesters' scream & rant as much as they wanted."
If someone "got too frisky or out of line," however, Trump said Secret Service "would quickly come down on them, hard."
"The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence," he added in another tweet.
The White House was briefly on lockdown Friday amid the protests, as demonstrators faced off with Secret Service and burned American flags.

At least one person was arrested by federal agents outside the White House on Friday, as Secret Service officers were forced to close the entrances and exits.
Trump said if people crossed the fence, they would "have have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen."
"That’s when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action," Trump tweeted.
In another tweet, he added:" As you saw last night, they were very cool & very professional. Never let it get out of hand. Thank you!"
He then took a jab at Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser.
Trump said the mayor, "who is always looking for money & help, wouldn’t let the D.C. Police get involved."
“'Not their job,'" he said, quoting Bowser.
"Nice!" he added sarcastically.
Trump then continued on his Twitter storm, slamming demonstrators and saying the protests had "little to do" with Floyd.
