As a doctor attended to the woman, Trump graciously paused his rally for a few minutes. Some of the audience intermittently broke the silence by shouting their approval of the president.
Other’s insulted CNN while some were heard saying the Lord's Prayer. However, the most beautiful part came when someone started singing “Amazing Grace” as the woman was carried out.
Everyone at the venue joined in as Trump stood on the podium proudly. When the crowd was done singing, the president commented:
"That was really something. I want to just thank everybody for the way you behaved, and at the end was beautiful, ‘Amazing Grace,’ that was beautiful.”
He then added that he hoped the woman would be fine. This was the second time that Trump needed to pause his speech following a medical emergency.
On the same day, during a rally at Fort Wayne, Indiana, the president paused after a person required medical attention. At the Missouri rally, Trump was joined by Fox News host Sean Hannity, radio host Rush Limbaugh, and TV personality Jeanine Pirro.
The president pushed for Missouri Senate Republican candidate Josh Hawley at the rally. Hawley is running to unseat Democrat Claire McCaskill in Tuesday’s midterm elections.
Trump’s midterm election campaign advert featuring convicted felon Luis Bracamontes has been removed from Facebook. The advert tried to link Bracamontes to migrants who left Central America to seek asylum in the US.
The felon murdered two sheriff’s deputies in 2014.
