5.00 min mark — Trump taken off stage
Details surrounding the event are few – according to initial unconfirmed reports, a person in the crowd allegedly pulled a gun – but shortly after appearing on stage at a Nevada rally, Donald Trump was rushed off stage by Secret Service agents.
While many have donned their tin foil hats over the past few months, the big question everyone is asking is – will the establishment use the ultimate tool to stop Trump winning the election? Initial unconfirmed reports suggest that a man in the crowd pulled a gun:
Massive disruption here in Reno. Armed officers jumped in. People on the floor said — & this is unconfirmed — that they saw a man pull a gun
According to The Hill, the Republican presidential nominee noticed a protestor in the crowd and told event security to remove him. But as Trump looked out over the crowd to spot the protestor, two men in suits ran to the stage, grabbed him by the shoulders, and rushed him behind the curtain.
A group of security officials jumped over the barricade, protecting the stage and looking into the crowd, backing up shocked attendees who tried to take video of the protestor.
Security led a bald man out of the convention hall as the crowd cheered and also booed the protestor.
And moments later:
Trump is back on stage. Looks cool as a cucumber. Crowd goes wild.
Trump returned to the stage moments later to continue his speech. “Nobody said it was going to be easy for us, but we will never be stopped. Never ever be stopped,” Trump said. “I want to thank the Secret Service. These guys are fantastic – they don’t get enough credit,” he said.:
