'Not welcome here': protesters prepare for Trump Chicago visit | US news | The Guardian

Trump is set to go face-to-face with the city he maligns as a ‘disaster’ for his first time as president

The last time Donald Trump came to Chicago, protesters forced the cancellation of a campaign rally.

It was March 2016, and the reality TV star was on his way to becoming the Republican nominee for president. His events were already infamous for the violence they inspired in his supporters. The Friday evening rally on the campus of University of Illinois at Chicago, one of the most diverse colleges in the country, had a powder keg feel. It turned out even more chaotic than expected, marked by angry clashes between protesters and Trump supporters.
============================================
The rally, which was all about campaign $$$, was scrapped because of the massive demonstrations.
