Watch: Trump Laughs, Jokes After Supporter Calls for Shooting Migrants

 
 
 
President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Panama City Beach, Florida Wednesday night was the usual raucous affair – except for one exchange which has many even more outraged than usual.

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."
