According to the San Francisco Chronicle, local residents reported that supporters used racist language, including towards children, while taking part in the parade just days before the election.

"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. "Are they going to attack us in the future? What was their point? Were they trying to make a statement?"

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. "If this is what is happening on November 1st, then what is going to happen on the 3rd or 4th? It makes me scared of what we can expect moving forward."

  Donald Trump demolished the Republican Party and rebuilt it in his own image. Even after losing the US election, his legacy will live on After four years of open rebellion, Trump's anti-establishment message ultimately failed to rally enough voters for a second victory. But no matter what happens next, his legacy will continue on and he will be a thorn in the side of the next President.The man who became a household name on The Apprentice, had defied the pollsters and been elected to the highest office in the United States.

Trump has narrowed the gap on Biden from 10 points to just 6 in those states.

Trump said black Americans 'never' liked Biden – despite the former vice president holding a solid lead over Trump when it comes to the black vote. The accusation from Trump appears to be a conflation between Biden' s remarks and ones made years later by Hillary Clinton.

The parade was met with counter-protests, including reports of physical altercations and eggs being thrown at Trump supporters.

Sgt. Brenton Schneider of the Marin County sheriff's office said they received no reports of any injuries during the parade and no arrests were made.

"We just did our best to keep the peace," Schneider told the Marin Independent Journal.

"The entire Gateway Shopping Center was nothing but Trump supporters," he said.

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

Lisa Brayer, a Mill Valley resident who went shopping in Marin City on Sunday, described the procession being attended by "mainly big trucks driven by a group of white men."

She added: "It was exactly like what you see on the news," she said. "It was all a big joke to them, but it was super scary. You just don't expect to see it in Marin at all. It was awful."

The Marin County sheriff's office has been contacted for further comment.

The caravan was one of a number of "Trump Trains" to have taken place across the country over the weekend in the run up to the election.
