Donald Trump called off his Chicago rally due to strong opposition from protesters.
Donald Trump has been a divisive figure in the American election to say the least, and the tension around his campaign came to a head in Chicago last night. Protesters showed up to the potential republican candidate's rally at the University of Illinois hours before his appearance, having a strong presence both inside and outside the venue.
Due to conflicts within the building (According to BBC1, Trump supporters were "wrestling" flags out of the hands of protesters, and one Trump opposer was able to make his way on stage before being escorted out by what seemed to be a secret service agent), Trump postponed the event before he even showed up.
Meanwhile, rap played a large role in the protests, with Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" being chanted, as well as a refrain inspired by Crime Mob's "Knuck If You Buck," but perhaps the most memorable hip-hop reference came with a sign that read, "Metro Boomin doesn't trust trump". Of course, the root of that particular phrase comes from Metro Boomin's drop, which most recently appeared on Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Part 1". The tag is a clip of Future saying "If young Metro don't trust you I'm gon' shoot you," a quote that has inspired countless memes over the last few weeks.
