Pro-Trump truck rally rolls through Pleasanton

Hundreds of pickup trucks and other vehicles adorned with campaign flags, signs and merchandise in support of President Donald Trump, along with U.S. flags and a range of other items, drove a rally route through Pleasanton and other Tri-Valley cities on Saturday.

The "TriValley Trump Truck Rally II," which started with a gathering in the Stoneridge Shopping Center parking lot before proceeding into Pleasanton and beyond, crowded several central city streets for multiple hours on Saturday, according to traffic alerts put out by the Pleasanton Police Department.

The sights and sounds of the rally, as well as its impact on local traffic, were noticeable to detractors and supporters alike, according to various resident posts on social media that day.

The parade, which followed a smaller version last month, was sponsored by a group called the United Conservative Coalition -- though its website provides little detail about the group's purpose or where it's based.
