Donald Trump has been dominating the GOP presidential race for months now, so liberals are becoming increasingly desperate to stop him. Last week, Trump made the sad announcement that he had been forced to cancel one of his rallies due to threats of violence. We never thought things would go this far…
According to recent reports, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was forced to cancel one of his signature rallies on Friday, claiming that he didn’t want to see “people get hurt.”
When the announcement was made, a crowd of protesters outside of the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion broke out into cheers. Contrastingly, supporters of Trump started chanting, “We want Trump! We want Trump!”
There were some physical altercations between the two groups reported, but it was likely significantly less than if Trump had moved forward.
In an interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren, Trump claimed that he arrived in Chicago two hours before and more than 25,000 people were trying to enter the arena.
“I didn’t want to see people get hurt (so) I decided to postpone the rally,” Trump comment, saying he met with law enforcement authorities. “What we did was intelligent. A very good decision…a wise decision. If we had the rally, I think it would not have been a good situation.”
Still, he argued, the entire situation was disturbing.
“Our First Amendment rights have been violated,” he commented.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, on the other hand, argued that the legendary businessman brought it on himself by creating “an environment that encourages this of nasty discourse.”
“When the candidate urges supporters to engage in physical violence, to punch people in the face, the predictable consequence of that is that it escalates,” Cruz told reporters. “Today is unlikely to be the last such incidence.”
