NEW YORK — United States pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Don­ald Trump asked a wo­man with a cry­ing baby to leave his rally in Ash­burn, Vir­ginia, on Tues­day.

The Repub­li­can nom­i­nee ini­tially sug­gested that he did not mind the dis­rup­tion.

“Don’t worry about that baby. I love ba­bies,” Trump said af­ter hear­ing the baby cry­ing dur­ing an aside about the trade im­bal­ance. “Don’t worry about it. I love ba­bies. I hear that baby cry­ing, I like it. What a baby. What a beau­ti­ful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s run­ning around like — don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beau­ti­ful and healthy and that’s what we want.”

Trump then re­turned to his non-baby-re­lated re­marks, only to hear the baby make more noise.

“They have ripped us to shreds, ripped us ab­so­lutely to shreds,” Trump said of China, be­fore turn­ing back to the wo­man with the child.

“Ac­tu­ally, I was only kid­ding, you can get the baby out of here,” the Repub­li­can nom­i­nee said to laugh­ter and ap­plause. “That’s all right. Don’t worry. I, I think she re­ally be­lieved me that I love hav­ing a baby cry­ing while I’m speak­ing. That’s OK. Peo­ple don’t un­der­stand. That’s OK.” — Politico
