The Donald Trump Rally in Chicago recently got out of hand, and the Presidential hopeful was surrounded by Secret Service after a man tried to breach security and attack him.

It seems that the anger is spilling over into Cleveland, Ohio. While a group of protestors was assembling outside of Donald Trump's rally in the city, a Trump supporter shot back with an offensive statement.

"Go to Auschwitz, go to f---ing Auschwitz,' the supporter said, as he walked past the group at the rally.

The man was seen carrying a Donald Trump poster at the rally on Saturday.

Auschwitz was one of the most horrifying concentration camps during World War II. It is just one of the many sites where Nazis tortured Jewish prisoners during the Holocaust. The entire tragedy killed 6 million Jews.

This comment came after Anti-Trump protestors and supporters clashed and fought after his rally at Cleveland's International Exposition center. Trump is currently the frontrunner in the Republican campaign.

Trump may make headlines for his outlandish statements, but having one of his supporters telling protestors to go to one of the Holocaust's worst labor camps does not help his campaign, even if those words didn't come out of his mouth.

Trump has been known to make offensive comments towards Mexicans, immigrants, African-Americans, Jews, and the list continues. Many have compared his rallies to Adolf Hitler's early speeches, citing comparisons to how Trump is blaming immigrants for America's problems to how Hitler blames Jews for America's problems.

This statement just makes his campaign a whole lot worse, due to the fact that many will see Trump's supporters as ones who support the horrifying things that happened at Auschwitz and use that statement to attack protestors.

Despite the backlash, Trump is leading all Republican nominees in votes and could be the one to take the GOP nomination come election time.
