    Protesters briefly clashed with police officers providing security at the rally of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump in the US state of Utah, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A group of anti-Trump protesters broke a tent located in front of Trump's rally in the Salt Lake City and had reportedly thrown rocks at people supporting the presidential candidate. Police were forced to push the angry crowd back, Fox 13 broadcaster reported.

    Trump's campaign rallies have been repeatedly disrupted by protesters over the past several days.

    Last week, Kansas City police used pepper spray to disperse large crowds of protesters who gathered outside the Arvest Bank Theatre to demonstrate against Trump. In Chicago, a similar rally was canceled after a brawl between thousands of Trump’s supporters and opponents.

    Trump has been widely criticized for his inflammatory rhetoric and controversial statements, including in relation to immigrants, particularly from Mexico, Muslims, and women.
