UPDATE: Political world closely watching Trump's Saturday events

Mar 12, 2016 10:30 AM

The political world is closely watching the latest Donald Trump campaign events after the Republican presidential candidate canceled a Chicago rally over fears of violence.

The GOP front-runner is scheduled to campaign Saturday in Ohio - Dayton and Cleveland - before an evening event in Kansas City, Missouri.

It was a raucous scene Friday night in Chicago when Trump called off the rally due to safety concerns after protesters packed the arena where he was to speak.

The announcement of the postponement led a large portion of the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers.

Sharp words from Marco Rubio about Donald Trump and the mess at Trump's canceled rally in Chicago.

Rubio is still hoping to be the Republican presidential nominee, but he's also said he'd support whichever candidate the party picks. Trump is the front-runner, and Rubio says he'll stick to his pledge, but "it's getting harder every day."

Rubio says that some of the blame for what happened Friday night in Chicago lies with the protesters, but he says much of the divisiveness is in Trump's hands.

Rubio says Trump is feeding into some voters' anger and bitterness and is manipulating that for votes.

Rubio - a Florida senator - is campaigning Saturday in his home state, which holds its presidential primary on Tuesday.
