Fascist Donald Trump has called off a rally in Chicago for safety reasons after a massive protest led to violent outbursts. A statement from Trump’s campaign said the rally was cancelled on advice from the police. Thousands of protesters gathered outside the University of Illinois hours before Trump was due to arrive. Inside the auditorium, fights began between supporters and protesters, who were waving flags, carrying banners and chanting. Several violent outbreaks, some sparked by Trump supporters attempting to wrestle flags from protesters, led to one protester being forcibly removed by what seemed to be a Secret Service agent.

Trump was continually interrupted by the noise, eventually calling the activists a “disgrace”. He has called his supporters’ actions “appropriate”, unsurprising for someone currently banned or in the process of being banned from several nations across the globe.

Earlier Friday, 32 protestors were arrested in St. Louis for similar actions against Trump.
