"I'm concerned about Marin City, because it's the only Black community in Marin and there is only one entrance and one exit," resident Amber Allen-Peirson told the Chronicle.

Multiple reports of a Trump 2020 rally today at the Marin City shopping center parking lot off Highway 101.

Residents are shocked and confused why Trump supporters decided to go to Marin City, a predominantly Black community, so close to Election Day.

Allen-Peirson also described feeling unsafe at the sight of the so-called Trump Train, adding it was like "the Taliban had come to town.".

"It felt like local terrorism, especially since it was Sunday, which is a holy day for the black community," she added.

"There is nobody who can tell me Marin City wasn't targeted because we are the only diverse community in the county.". »
