Dahlonega city officials are preparing for a pro-Trump rally and possible counter protests on Saturday in the town square. 

According to a flyer for the "American Patriot Rally,” it’s an event to honor the flag and President Trump. But promoters of the rally have a history of ties to the Ku Klux Klan, and the event has been heavily shared on white supremacist websites.
