It’s been a big week for Donald Trump. The GOP nominee attacked the family of a Muslim-American soldier killed in the line of duty, took a shot at victims of workplace sexual harassment, and on Tuesday, started beefing with a baby during a Virginia rally.
“Don’t worry about that baby,” Trump said after a crying infant could be heard on a broadcast of the speech. “I love babies, I hear that baby crying, I like it! What a baby! What a beautiful baby.”
“Don’t worry, the mom’s running around, don’t worry about it! It’s young and beautiful and healthy, that’s what we want,” he continued.
The New York businessman went on talking about China’s “devaluation” of its currency.
“Actually, I was only kidding. You can get the baby out of here,” he then said to laughs from the crowd. “I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking.”
