Organizers worked hard to nail down the location of Trump's San Francisco Bay Area visit for a fundraiser on September 17. Team Trump played footsie for days leading up to his appearance, saying that they feared a "criminal element" would endanger their event. In the nick of time protest organizers determined the fundraiser location to be a home owned by Scott McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems CEO in Palo Alto Hills.
