It all started out so well...
From the Washington Post:
"Don't worry about that baby, I love babies!" he interjected. "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."
While it is decidedly rare to hear anyone proclaim that they "like" hearing a baby cry, it was a human moment – a move by Trump to say to a mother in the audience: don't worry about it, we'll keep the speech moving. And for a minute, he did. Until the baby dared to interrupt his thoughts on China with a second outburst.
"Actually, I was only kidding. You can get the baby out of here," Trump said. "I think she really believed me, that I love having a baby crying while I'm speaking!"
"People don't understand, but that's okay," he added.
