At San Francisco rally, some worry Trump 'is going to come after us'

Several hundred people gathered at Justin Herman Plaza here on the edge of San Francisco Bay for a rally that was to precede a short protest march.

It was peaceful, almost muted.

"Trump hates kids and puppies," suggested one sign.

Lori Koon, a 60-year-old hairdresser from the Mission District, wore a San Francisco Giants cap and a yellow slicker to ward of the light showers. She is part of the Courage Campaign, a grassroots group that aims to protect and promote California interests.

"I think he is going to come after us (Californians) ... to weaken our position in the country and hurt us any way he can," she said of President Trump.

"I don't know what that is, but it isn't going to be pretty," she said.
