Trump Rally and parade backs the blue in Mendota Saturday morning. Mendota resident Kyle Clark wanted to show local police officers his support, so he organized a gathering at the Mendota Civic Center.
Roughly 100 or so vigorously enthusiastic Donald Trump supporters cheered Clark on under a deep blue sky and autumn sunshine.
The Protest in support of Trump and the Police was met with some counter protesters bearing black lives matter banners. The BLM crowd was much smaller in number but just as committed to expressing their dislike of Donald Trump.
Counter protester Jackie Margowski of Mendota expressed said she was there to oppose racism in any form.
Neither groups ever met or even came close to meeting.
