Trump rushed off stage at campaign rally

RENO, NV (CNN/WSPA) – Donald Trump was rushed off the stage by Secret Service agents in the middle of his rally after an incident in the crowd, near the front of the stage.

Trump was in the middle of a campaign speech when the incident happened.

CNN reports that he was looking into the crowd, with his hand over his eyes to block the glare from the stage lights, when his Secret Service grabbed him and escorted him off the stage.

They say he ducked his head as he left the stage.

Security personnel then detained a man in the crowd and rushed him into a side room.

Several people at the rally said they saw a Trump supporter raise up a sign and then the incident occurred.

Trump returned to the stage moments later, saying, “Nobody said it was going to be easy for us, but we will never be stopped. We will never be stopped. I want to thank the Secret Service. These guys are fantastic.”
