Donald Trump’s rally in Kansas City, Missouri, Saturday night looked a little familiar. 

"Go home to mommy, get them out of here, get them out," Trump said. Protesters congregated both inside and outside of the Midland Theatre. 

And after dozens were escorted out of the venue, the police sprayed the crowd with pepper spray. 

At the rally, Trump said: "I hope you arrest 'em and do whatever you have to do. And you know what? Once that starts happening, we're not going to have any more protesters, folks. We're not going to have any more protesters."

This comes on the heels of violent protests at Trump rallies in both St. Louis and Chicago Friday night. The Trump campaign was forced to cancel the Chicago rally. 

During Sunday’s rally, Trump said he was encouraged by Kansas City officials not to come because protests were expected. 

"I told the police I knew there was going to be problems here," Trump said. 

But several officials, including Kansas City's city manager, tweeted saying that's not true. 

After the rally, Kansas City Police tweeted, "We had to use pepper spray 2 times outside Trump rally and arrested 2 people who refused to follow law." Newsy’s partners at KSHB later reported four were arrested.
