Secret Service stopped a would-be assassin from shooting Donald Trump at a campaign event in Reno, Nevada
Donald Trump was rushed off the stage by Secret Service agents on Saturday night while making a speech at a rally in Reno, Nevada.
The Republican nominee shielded his eyes and looked into the crowd and was then suddenly rushed off the stage as an incident unfolded at the front of the crowd.
Several minutes later, a balding white male wearing a hoodie was escorted out in handcuffs by number of police officers.
Eventually, Trump returned to the stage and said: “Nobody said it was going to be easy but we will never be stopped. We will never be stopped.”
He added “I want to thank the Secret Service, those guys are fantastic.”
The Republican nominee then returned to his stump speech and finished reading it from a teleprompter.
This was the second time that the Secret Service was forced to remove Trump from the stage. At a March rally in Ohio, Trump was escorted off after a man rushed the stage, saying he wanted to “bully the bully”.
