Chicago police responded to the incident and assisted the Secret Service, according to a Chicago Police Department spokesperson.

Trump confirmed the incident during an interview with Breitbart Tuesday evening, calling it a “disgusting” act by someone with “emotional problems.”
“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Trump told Breitbart. “For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.”
Trump did not press charges, Breitbart reported.
