The Star (Kenya) - - News World -

Re­pub­li­can can­di­date Don­ald Trump was briefly rushed off the stage by Se­cret Ser­vice agents at a rally in Reno, Ne­vada, in a false alarm. A man hold­ing a sign say­ing Repub­li­cans against Trump was tack­led by se­cu­rity agents, af­ter claims he had a gun. Trump re­turned to the stage min­utes later. The Re­pub­li­can can­di­date says he will tar­get states seen as Demo­cratic strongholds ahead of to­mor­row’s elec­tion. Trump is set to visit Penn­syl­va­nia, Michi­gan and also Min­ne­sota, which has not voted Re­pub­li­can since 1972. On Satur­day evening, he stopped speak­ing at the Reno rally af­ter see­ing some­thing in the au­di­to­rium. He was grabbed by two agents, who rushed him off stage, while the pro­tester was held down and searched. When he re­sumed his speech, Trump said: “No­body said it was go­ing to be easy for us... I want to thank the Se­cret Ser­vice.”
