DOWNTOWN — Activists plan to ask Chicagoans how they feel about Donald Trump during a Tuesday event in Daley Plaza.

Jedidiah Brown, who has spoken out against Republican presidential candidate Trump in the past, said he's holding the event because he's trying to encourage people to vote "based on how they believe."

Brown also wants to "troll" the Trump campaign, he said, by laying out a sheet of paper in Daley Plaza and asking passersby to write on it and describe how they feel about Trump. He'll provide the pens.

"We're trying to encourage our people to go out and vote," Brown told DNAinfo Chicago. "We're not telling them who to vote for, even though I'm making it clear that I'm against Donald Trump."

People will also be able to write about why they'll vote the way they will, Brown said, and either Tuesday or sometime later activists will bring the sheet to Trump Tower.

Brown also spoke about his plans in a video on Facebook:

Brown has spoken out against Trump before: He rushed the stage at Trump's canceled rally in March and received death threats afterward; earlier this month, he posted a video showing him going around the suburbs taking pro-Trump signs. He promised to bring those signs "back home to Chicago."

Meanwhile Trump's own relationship with Chicago has been strained: His rally was canceled with activists gathered against it, an honorary street sign with his name has been stolen and activists have gathered outside Trump Tower to speak out against the candidate multiple times.

For his part, Trump has repeatedly criticized the city, likening it to a "war-torn country" at one point, while citing incorrect information about the city's violence.
