Complaining to supporters from the Florida panhandle that migrants are trying to enter the U.S. through the Southern border, the President asked, "How do you stop these people?"
One supporter, as The Guardian reported, responded, "Shoot them!"
President Trump laughed, paused, then turned it into an applause line.
"That's only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement," Trump proclaimed. As the audience broke out into cheers and applause, Trump, who himself has called labeled immigrants "animals," repeated: "Only in the panhandle."
At his rally tonight, Trump says the government is unable to violently attack immigrants, someone in the crowd shouted "Shoot them!"
The crowd & Trump erupt in laughter & cheers. Trump says, "Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement."pic.twitter.com/SgQd2OH9ti
