Anti-Trump activists sparked security fears in Chicago on Friday and shut down a rally that had drawn tens-of-thousands of supporters.

 

Stunned fans of presidential hopeful Donald Trump were informed at the University of Illinois-Chicago Pavilion on Friday that activists had succeeded in derailing the event.

 

Do you support Trump? Tell the world with this brand new bumper sticker: “DONALD TRUMPS THE REST”

 

“Mr. Trump just arrived in Chicago and after meeting with law enforcement that for the safety of tens-of-thousands of people that have gathered in and around the arena, tonight’s rally will be postponed until another date,” someone announced over a loudspeaker. “Thank you very much for your attendance and please go in peace.”

 

The Chicago Police Department, Chicago Fire Department, the Secret Service and the FBI all coordinated efforts to provide security.

 

“I feel a lot of hate,” 18-year-old Trump supporter Veronica Kowalkowsky said, Fox News reported. “I haven’t said anything bad to anyone.”

 

Some protesters wore shirts that read “Muslims United Against Trump” and “Make America Hate Again.” They were escorted out of the building as others cheered “USA!”

 

More than 10,000 officially RSVP’d for Trump’s event, which was scheduled to take place at 6 p.m. EST. The first person in line arrived at 3 a.m., NBC-5 Chicago reported.

 

“We’re not going to let Donald Trump take us back to the 1950s,” said Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a Chicago Democrat and staunch advocate for illegal immigrants told the station. “We’ve worked too hard.”

“[The goal is] for Donald to take the stage and to completely interrupt him. The plan is to shut Donald Trump all the way down,” added activist Quo Vadis, Fox reported.

 

Gutierrez’s and Vadis’ glee to stop Trump was shared by the protesters, who chanted “We stopped Trump!” after the announcement was made, Chicago Tribune reporter Bill Ruthhart tweeted.

Friday’s protests come just one day after Grammy-winning artist Chris Brown called for mobs of black people to provoke Donald Trump’s supporters at rallies.

 

“What you need to start doing — all these black people, go together 40, 50 deep. See what they do then,” Brown said in a video posted to his Instagram account on Thursday, WND reported.

 

“God will have his revenge. F–k Trump and f–k the pigs,” Brown added.

 

Trump has four more days to reschedule the event before Illinois primary voters head to the polls March 15.
