Donald Trump canceled a rally Friday at the University of Illinois at Chicago after protesters and Trump supporters confronted each other in the venue.

Trump, who never made it inside, issued this statement:

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.

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