CINCINNATI -- Donald Trump added a stop in "Cincinnati" on Sunday afternoon to his campaign travel schedule

The rally -- actually held in West Chester at the Savannah Center -- will take place at 2 p.m.

Butler Co. Sheriff Richard K. Jones tweeted Saturday that he will speak at the West Chester rally.

Hundreds of Facebook users have already RSVPed to planned protests at the West Chester event and throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.

Trump held a  Dayton rally  at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Dayton Airport Expo Center. During the rally, Trump was surrounded by security when a protester jumped on stage. Deputies confirmed that the protestor was arrested.

The Republican front-runner made stops in Cleveland, Kansas City, Missouri, and Bloomington, Illinois between the Dayton and Cincinnati rallies.

Trump's visit to Cincinnati comes days after a rally in Chicago was canceled due to protests and " security concerns ." A  journalist filed a police report  against Trump's campaign manager saying she was grabbed when she attempted to ask a question at the rally.

Other candidates made rounds through the Cincinnati area during the last weekend before the Ohio primary; John Kasich was the keynote speaker at a pancake breakfast Saturday in Sharonville and Bill Clinton campaigned for Hillary Clinton at the Underground Railroad Freedom Center Saturday morning.

Bill Clinton and Kasich both denounced Trump at their rallies Saturday.

"I'm worried about what I saw in Chicago last night," Clinton said. "I'm worried about the tone of the debates on the other side. This has been building for a long time."

Kasich blasted Trump for violence and danger in Chicago Friday (read more about Kasich's remarks  here ).

"I will not seek the low road to the highest office in America," Kasich said.

Trump responded by calling Kasich a "weak baby" who "couldn't be president" at his rally in Dayton Saturday.

Democratic candidates Clinton and Bernie Sanders will both be campaigning in Columbus Sunday evening.
