Midway into his speech, the crowd suddenly grew restless, so Donald Trump paused. An increasing number of people began pointing at a person to Trump’s right. Soon, hundreds of people who had gathered for his Wednesday evening campaign rally in Kinston, N.C., were frantically waving their “Trump Pence” signs in that direction.

According to Yahoo news, Trump glanced at who his supporters were singling out: A black man wearing a suit jacket and sunglasses. “That’s all right, leaving him alone,” Trump said, at first seemed dismissive of what he saw. He quickly pivoted. “We have a protester,” Trump declared. The crowd booed.
