Cage is a well-known local activist in St. Louis who previously was involved with protests stemming from the Michael Brown case in 2014.

At least 35 protesters were removed during the event Friday, St. Louis police Chief Sam Dotson told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Earlier, multiple protesters disrupted the GOP front-runner during his rally. News media captured video of the people being removed from the room as Trump shouted: "Get him out! Let's go ... out!"

Violence at recent Trump rallies has made national news, including an incident earlier this week in North Carolina when a man was charged for hitting a protester in the face.

It was even a talking point in a Friday morning press conference where former GOP rival Dr. Ben Carson endorsed Trump for the Republican nomination.

The businessman addressed the protesters and how the media portrays them during Friday's rally.

"You know, they talk about a protest or something. They don't talk about what's really happing in these forums and these rooms and these stadiums," Trump said. "They don't talk about the love."

During last night's CNN Republican debate in Miami, moderator Jake Tapper asked Trump if he's contributed to a specific "tone" that promoted violence.

"I hope not. I truly hope not," the billionaire-turned-politician said. "We have some protesters who are bad dudes, they have done bad things. They are swinging, they are really dangerous ... And if they've got to be taken out, to be honest, I mean, we have to run something."

If it's any indication in recent days, attend the rallies at your own risk.

Later Friday, Trump will hold an evening rally at the University of Illinois at Chicago -- a civil and immigrant rights organizing hub with large minority student populations.
