President Donald Trump abruptly paused his speech Saturday evening while doctors attended to a medical emergency in the audience. The president had opted to speak at a campaign-style rally in Michigan rather than attend the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
The president spoke for over an hour, but about 50 minutes into his remarks, he abruptly paused in the middle of a comment about ICE agents dealing with gangs. “A doctor please? Doctor. A doctor please.”
Shouts of “thank you, sir!” could be heard from the audience, and President Trump then left the podium. He walked to the edge of the stage and waited nearly a full three minutes nodding and clapping along with audience members once he was satisfied that the situation had been handled.
When he returned to the microphone, he had nothing but good things to say about those who had stepped in to help. “Those are the people we love, those are great people, I’ll tell you. And the doctors, thank you, doctor. Great job. Amazing! What people we have, what people we have.”
