Donald Trump Is Rushed Off Stage by Secret Service After Protester Storms Podium

(Before It's News)

The left wails and warns about the decent and rational right but it is the left that are violent. Always. Throughout modern history, it has been the left behind the major genocides. It is the left behind the assassination of JFK and attempted assassination of Presidents Reagan and Ford (and a Palestinian behind the murder of RFK).

These savages project their soulness hate on us — but it’s them. It’s always been them.

And bless the Secret Service – who Hillary treated them like the dirt on her shoe. Shouting profanities at them, abusing them, one Secret Service agent wrote a book about Hillary’s degrading abuse.

“BREAKING NEWS – Donald Trump is rushed off the stage by Secret Service while speaking during Reno rally after a protester runs at the podium and is tackled to the ground by supporters,” By Daily Mail, November 5, 2016:

Secret Service agents rushed Donald Trump offstage on Saturday evening during a rally in Reno, Nevada after they determined a protester in the audience posed a threat to the Republican presidential candidate.

‘Go! Go!’ agents shouted as they whisked him away and a combination of local police and private security wrestled a man at the front of the crowd to the ground.

A sea of bodies scattered, screams rang out and authorities dragged the man away as he kicked and strained.

A Trump campaign source who spoke with DailyMail.com said someone in the audience had shouted ‘gun’ kicking off the ensuing chaos.

While there has been confusion as to whether the man had a weapon, authorities have not recovered one and police do not think the man was armed, the source said.

Just before the fracas, Trump could be seen shielding his eyes from the lights in order to peer into the crowd as a struggle broke out.

Three agents then stormed the stage and hustled the Republican presidential candidate away.

The man removed from the crowd by police was belligerent before Trump supporters jumped him, the Trump campaign source told DailyMail.com.

A witness watching the scuffle yelled ‘He’s got a gun’ before Secret Service acted and removed Trump from the stage, according to the source.

Two audience members told DailyMail.com they had seen the man holding a firearm, however that has not been confirmed by law enforcement.

As police and good Samaritans took the man down, the crowd surged backward and strained against the press section.

‘CNN sucks!’ one man yelled. ‘You people caused this!’

Witness Donald Newton, 45, of California who was in the crowd at the time said he was next to the man, who he said was holding a sign and started heading toward the stage, as the chaos unfolded.

‘He had something on his belly. I don’t know what it was,’ Newton told the Reno Gazette-Journal.

‘Somebody yelled ‘gun’ and everyone jumped on him. My friend put his knee on his head, but he kept getting up.’

Television footage showed a white male suspect pinioned on the ground by officers and searched, before he was led away from the convention center.

At this time a motive is not clear. Authorities placed the man in a bathroom near a secure entrance where Trump's motorcade and the press vehicles were staged

Federal agents and tactical officers with rifles from Reno Police removed the man and placed him in a bathroom near a secure entrance where Trump’s motorcade and the press vehicles were staged.

Just before 11pm EST, it was reported that the man had been released.

Trump returned onstage a short time after the fracas and addressed the audience as he continued his rally speech, appearing unrattled by the scuffle and spoke with his usual self-confidence.

‘Nobody said it was going to be easy for us,’ Trump declared. ‘But we will never be stopped. Never, never be stopped.’

‘I want to thank the Secret Service. These guys are fantastic. They don’t get enough credit. They don’t get enough credit. They’re amazing people.’

Trump said he had spotted the protester and claimed he was a Hillary Clinton supporter before asking security to ‘take him out.’

Trump’s Secret Service detail were able to remove the Republican presidential candidate from the Reno-Sparks Convention Center without incident.

As he returned to his speech, he thanked a group of fans near the stage who had stepped in to subdue his would-be attacker.

‘You were amazing, fellas,’ he said.

‘I saw what you were doing. That’s a tough group of people right there… Nobody messes with our people, right?’

He and his staff later made it aboard his custom Boeing 757, dubbed Trump Force One, in advance of a flight to Denver for the day’s fourth rally in as many stages.

Trump issued a brief statement before the plane took off, but shed no new light on what had happened.

‘I would like to thank the United States Secret Service and the law enforcement resources in Reno and the state of Nevada for their fast and professional response,’ Trump said.

‘I also want to thank the many thousands of people present for their unwavering and unbelievable support. Nothing will stop us – we will make America great again.’

Trump and his traveling press corps had flown five hours from coastal North Carolina to western Nevada on Saturday to appeal to rock-ribbed conservatives in the key battleground state.

His 11th-hour punches left a mark on the U.S. Senate’s most senior Democrat, just three days before Tuesday’s election.

‘Don’t let crazy, broken Harry Reid and his corrupt political machine decide this election,’ Trump said, painting the retiring Nevada senator as ‘a political hack.’

The Republican presidential nominee has warned his devoted followers for nearly a year that America’s elections – both primaries and general – are ‘rigged’, with him getting specific in Reno.

‘It’s being reported that certain key Democratic polling locations in Clark County were kept open for hours and hours beyond closing time to bus and bring Democratic voters in,’ he claimed, referring to the Las Vegas metro area on the state’s southern tip.

‘Folks, it’s a rigged system. It’s a rigged system and we’re going to beat it. We’re going to beat it.’

Saturday’s incident marked the second time Secret Service had to intervene to get Trump out of harm’s way.

In March, a man leaped over a police barricade during a Trump rally at an airport hangar in Dayton, Ohio.

The man, Thomas Dimassimo, was charged with disorderly conduct and inciting panic, but he never reached the stage.

Secret Service tackled him when he was still several yards away from the candidate.

‘I was ready for him, but it’s much easier if the cops do it, don’t we agree?’ Trump said at the time.

‘And to think I had such an easy life! What do I need this for, right?’
