A protester who appeared to be yelling tried to rush the stage at Donald Trump’s rally in Dayton, Ohio on Saturday morning.
Trump’s speech was interrupted as his Secret Service detail rushed to protect him. Trump was visibly startled, but then thanked the crowd for warning him, reports CNN.
“I was ready for him,” Trump said to the audience, according to NBC. “But it’s much easier if the cops do it.”
The protester’s motivations were not immediately clear, but law enforcement officers told CNN the man will be charged with disorderly conduct.
