WASHINGTON (AP) – Donald Trump is complaining that a fire marshal in Ohio is capping attendance at his town hall on Monday.

Trump, the Republican nominee, told reporters before his event in Columbus that it’s “a disgrace” that more people were not allowed to attend.

He added that the move is “for purely political reasons they were turned away.”

He said officials capped attendance at 1,000 people and that several thousand more people were unjustly denied entry.

“That’s politics at its lowest,” he said.

Several hundred people snaked around the block at the cavernous Greater Columbus Convention Center at the slated 3:00 p.m. start time.

Trump’s remarks came just three days after he made similar complaints about a fire marshal in Colorado Springs.
