Expect other protests too, including one that will start at Clark Park and another being planned by Pride Festival organizers.

This shit again. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is back in Washington today to whip his supporters into a frenzy about immigrants, refugees, and Hillary Clinton's failing health.

Consequently, his presence here is more to buck up the locals while raising some much-need cash at a fundraiser prior to the public event. The rally includes Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson.


The event also comes as Trump has made a concerted effort to court black voters, who view him unfavorably in historic numbers. The city's mayor, Ray Stephanson, and other officials are scheduled to lead a protest at 4 p.m.in Clark Park before moving to the arena to rally outside.
