"We didn't plan to do anything ... They said, 'This is Trump's property; it's a private event.' But I paid my tuition to be here," 19-year-old Tahjila Davis told The Register.

After leaving the complex where the rally was held, the students reportedly argued outside with police officers, who told them that they needed to leave the premises.

The rally drew 7,500 people.

The incident comes just a day after Trump was asked repeatedly by CNN's Jake Tapper to denounce former KKK grand wizard David Duke's support for his candidacy.

Donald Trump's campaign was not immediately available for comment.
