With statements like "[Muslims are] not coming to this country if I'm president," it's no wonder why hundreds of University of Central Florida students are protesting The Donald's rally at the CFE Arena on Saturday, March 5.

Doors open for Trump's rally at 9 a.m. with The Donald himself scheduled to appear around noon. Protesters plan to meet outside the arena at 8:30 a.m. 

Organizers stress this is a peaceful protest and that the "use of foul language, physical force, or inappropriate sign decoration is prohibited and any use of that will be done at the expense of the individual."

The event is restricted to the outdoors and does not sanction any protests that occur inside the rally.

Organizers are currently in communication with campus administration and UCFPD to ensure the protest follows university policy.

The Trump Dumpers have a Facebook event page that'll keep you up to date on all the protest happenings from here to Saturday.
