BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) - A large police presence is overseeing a rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Bloomington, Illinois.

The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports (https://bit.ly/21pA25P ) officers from several law enforcement agencies are working together to staff the Sunday morning event.

Local anti-Trump activist Sonny Garcia says more than 1,000 people have indicated on a Facebook page that they plan to protest Trump’s central Illinois campaign stop. Garcia has appealed for a peaceful demonstration.

On Friday night, Trump canceled a rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago after a large number of protesters showed up.

Some isolated confrontations took place afterward and police reported three men from Chicago and a 45-year-old woman from Michigan were arrested and charged for participating in a disturbance at the protest.
