Donald Trump supporters and protesters have clashed again following a rally that the Republican presidential frontrunner held in Cleveland, Ohio as he blamed Democrat Senator Bernie Sanders for escalating chaos. US police also fired pepper spray against an unruly crowd of demonstrators outside Trump’s rally in Kansas City on Saturday.

“Bernie’s People,” Trump repeatedly said in Cleveland, referring to several demonstrators before having them escorted out of the venue. The crowds later faced off outside, arguing about immigration and racism, before they were broken up by law enforcement. “I’m terrified by Donald Trump, by the way I see his supporters behaving, by the things he says about women, people of colour, anyone that’s different to him,” said Ben Bowman, a Trump protester.

At the rally, Trump also referred to “Bernie our communist friend” and called him a “lousy” senator while blaming him for the disruptions at his rallies. Rosa Rossi, a Trump supporter, said she thinks the former reality TV show star can revive the US’ past standing in world affairs.

“I believe he can get the illegal immigrants in control, he can build a wall, and he can also make better deals for America, where America will rise and be the most powerful country in the world again,” Rossi said.   In a Twitter post late Saturday, Kansas City police said they used pepper spray twice outside a rally adding two people were arrested. It wasn’t clear if those sprayed were demonstrators or Trump supporters. Videos posted on Twitter showed a large number of people being sprayed during the incident.
