Students And Professors Are FREAKING OUT Because Trump Is Speaking On Their Chicago Campus

Students and professors at the University of Illinois at Chicago are freaking out because Donald Trump is scheduled to appear on Friday evening on campus at the UIC Pavilion.

A petition demanding that officials at the taxpayer-funded school cancel the Trump campaign event has accumulated nearly 50,000 signatures.

Almost 10,000 Facebook users have pledged to show up to protest Trump’s Chicago rally.

“Donald Trump is running on a platform of hate and dangerous intolerance,” the Moveon.org petition states. “It has no place in Chicago but especially not at an institution of higher learning.”

“In many instances Trump rallies have led to students, youth, and people of color being violently attacked by attendees.”

The references to violent attacks relate to previous Trump rallies held on college campuses. At Virginia Commonwealth University, protesting students say Trump supporters shoved them around and spat at them. At Georgia’s Valdosta State University, a group of 30 black students say they were ejected from a Trump gathering when they attempted to protest peacefully.

The petition also criticizes Trump for his call for a moratorium on Muslims entering the United States and for his refusal to condemn the support of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke during a CNN interview.

“Trump is a danger and so are his events,” the petition concludes. “UIC should not be host to them.”
