Trump holds fundraiser in Chicago amid protests

CHICAGO --Donald Trump brought his campaign for president back to Chicago Tuesday.

He collected cash in a private meeting with donors at Trump Tower.

A small group of protesters gathered outside the hotel, criticizing the republican candidate for his statements and tweets on immigration, Muslims and other topics.

Tuesday's fundraiser is Trump's first campaign stop in Chicago since March, when he canceled a speech at UIC because of protests and safety concerns.

Ahead of his visit, Trump tweeted about crime in Chicago: "Crime is out of control, and rapidly getting worse. Look what is going on in Chicago and our inner cities. Not good!"
