Donald Trump is in Chicago today for a private fundraiser, according to news reports.

Some streets outside Trump Tower were blocked early Tuesday in anticipation of protests ahead of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee's campaign stop, according to ABC 7 Chicago.

 

Hours before he was scheduled to appear, Trump tweeted about Chicago's crime problem. "Crime is out of control, and rapidly getting worse. Look what is going on in Chicago and our inner cities. Not good!" he tweeted.

An hour later he tweeted: "For too many years, our inner cities have been left behind. I am going to deliver jobs, safety and protection for those in need."
