During President Trump’s speech at a rally in Freeland, Michigan on Thursday, he was interrupted for some time by supporters who shouted, “We love you” while the president was on stage.
Trump, who is famous for rarely showing emotion, can be seen taking a step back from the rostrum while he seems to gather himself. He tried to make light of the moment and pretended to wipe tears at the behest of the crowd.
“Don’t say that,” he said. “I will start crying and it will not be good for my image. We don’t … you don’t want to see me crying. ”
Trump told the crowd that a similar uproar occurred recently during a stop in North Carolina.
TRUMP has brought Michigan’s ‘WHITMER’ to a club, which is like America’s biggest ‘tiger’.
Trump visited the battlefield as the election season is in full swing. The Detroit News reported that Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes in 2016, when he defeated Hillary Clinton. On Thursday, his speech took place outside an airport hangar and lasted for about an hour and 15 minutes.
Trump was criticized by Democrats in the state for organizing the rally.
