Protesters brag ‘we shut Trump down!’ after rally cancellation: Domestic terrorism? Trump’s response

A scheduled Donald Trump rally in Chicago devolved into utter chaos Friday that resulted in the cancellation of the event.

Protesters, including domestic terrorist and Obama supporter Bill Ayers, clashed with Trump supporters inside the arena prior to Trump’s arrival.



“Mr. Trump just arrived in Chicago and after meeting with law enforcement has determined that for the safety of all of the tens of thousands of people that have gathered in and around the arena, tonight’s rally will be postponed to another date,” the Trump campaign wrote in a statement Friday night.

“Thank you very much for your attendance and please go in peace.”

Anti-Trump protesters chanting slogans like “Black Lives Matter” and waving Mexican flags, pushed, shoved and swung at Trump supporters who simply gathered to watch the event.

The MoveOn.org website that supports Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took partial credit for the disruption and threatened that the same type of actions would continue at future Trump rallies.

And there was plenty more evidence, like the following tweet from “People 4 Bernie,” that showed the protests were anything but spontaneous.

Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio spoke out about the event.

Below are pictures and videos of the chaos that swept the streets of Chicago Friday night.
