Latest reports suggest that real estate baronâ€™s campaign canceled a rally that was set to be organized at an arena at the University of Illinois at Chicago after protesters overwhelmed the event.
The protesters were not only present in large number outside the rally venue, they were inside the arena too with their banners and loud slogans. Donald Trumpâ€™s campaign managers said that the rally was cancelled due to safety concerns and tense confrontations between Trump protesters and supporters.
It is being reported that hours before Donald Trump landed in the town, a large number of demonstrators numbering more than a thousand lined up outside the arena to protest the Republican presidential front-runner.
The campaign while announcing the cancellation of rally said, “Mr. Trump just arrived in Chicago, and after meeting law enforcement, has determined that for the safety of all the tens of thousands of people that have gathered in and around the arena tonight’s rally will be postponed until another dateâ€¦Thank you very much for your attendance, and please go in peace.”
Trump himself seems hostile to protesters and had said a few weeks ago that he would like to punch protesters in face. Later he went on to add, “We have some protesters who are bad dudes, they have done bad thingsâ€¦And if they’ve got to be taken out, to be honest, I mean, we have to run something. And it’s not me. It’s usually the municipal government, the police because I don’t have guards all over these stadiums.”
