The crowds have also pushed the METRO Blue Line to its max capacity.
This is the most crowded I've ever seen the lightrail on the way to target center. This train is at capacity. We are going to start skipping stops. The rain ain't keeping the protestors away. #MinneapolisProud #TrumpMinneapolis #TrumpRally pic.twitter.com/EakehUi2Dd
