CHAOS AT CHICAGO TRUMP RALLY: Cancelled Due to Protesting Thugs [WATCH]

With crowds like that, you would think a civil war was about to break out. Does this help or hinder Trump’s campaign?

Donald Trump‘s rally in Chicago has been postponed amid huge protests against him.

Large crowds of protesters flocked to his event Friday, which was scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and was postponed about 40 minutes later.

CNN and Fox News are playing footage that shows hundreds of protestors chanting and holding signs critical of Trump, surrounding the location of the GOP front-runner’s rally in Chicago, Ill.

According to the Associated Press:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has cancelled a rally in Chicago, calling off the event due to safety concerns after protesters packed into the arena where it was to take place.

The announcement that Trump would postpone the rally for another day led the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers.

Meanwhile, supporters of the candidate broke out into chants of “We want Trump! We want Trump!”

There was no sign of Trump inside the arena on the college campus, where dozens of UIC faculty and staff had petitioned university administrators to cancel the rally. They cited concerns it would create a “hostile and physically dangerous environment” for students. (Source: AP)
