President Trump’s speech at a rally Thursday in Freeland, Michigan was briefly interrupted by supporters who chanted “We love you” while the president was on the podium.
Trump, who is notorious for rarely showing emotion, may be seen stepping back from the podium as he appears to be recovering. He tried to lighten the moment and pretended to wipe away the tears on the crowd’s gesture.
“Don’t say it,” he said. “I’m going to start crying and that wouldn’t be good for my image. We don’t … you don’t want to see me cry.”
Trump told the crowd that similar chants erupted during a recent stop in North Carolina.
