Is it teething time for your little one?


There has been controversy at every step of his campaign, but Donald Trump’s latest move has angered a lot of people today.


The Republican candidate has come under fire after telling a mother attending a campaign rally that she needed to remove her crying baby.


Trump was delivering a speech in Virginia when the baby began crying, and at first it seemed as though the father-of-five was sympathetic to the plight of the tot’s mother.



“Don’t worry about that. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it...Don’t worry, don’t worry,” he said.


However, when the baby interrupted him once more, Trump seemed to change his mind: “Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here…I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking.”


“That’s OK. People don’t understand,” he added.


As you can imagine, many people watching the rally were left shocked by the Republican presidential candidate’s reaction to the mother and child – with rival Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, among them.




Kaine tweeted: “First Trump attacked the Hotel Roanoke. Then a Gold Star VA family. Today, he kicked a baby out of a VA rally. Virginia is not for haters!”


Meanwhile, a father summed up the general consensus as he tweeted: “We're watching the Trump rally at home and my daughter Ella turned to me while he kicked the baby out and said, ‘This is not what we're about.’”
