As presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump rallies supporters in Las Vegas, Nevada.... Opponents in Phoenix, Arizona are setting up a demonstration that features a giant balloon of the New York billionaire dressed as in the robes of the white supremacist group, the Ku Klux Klan. The 30-foot tall figure is adorned with a Nazi swastika and holds a klansman's hat. The protest is set up a short distance from the Arizona State Fairgrounds, where supporters are gathering for a Trump rally on Saturday. Local media say temperatures are expected to hit more than 110 degrees, and officials fear the heat will shorten tempers and trigger outbursts between Trump supporters and opponents. Scenes of mayhem have become increasingly common at Trump rallies, which have been frequently interrupted by protesters, who say Trump's controversial remarks on immigrants and Muslims are dangerous.
