'I love babies! I don't throw babies out!' - Donald TrumpSaturday, August 06, 2016
Trump blasted media for over-blowing an incident when he asked a mother to leave a rally with her crying baby. 'This baby could have been Pavarotti!' he said, insisting that he'd gently suggested they go.
Donald Trump has dropped jaws at a campaign rally by telling the mother of a crying child to "get the baby out of here". The Republican has responded to the backlash. Read what he said:
'A beautiful baby was crying. And I felt like crying like you would not believe,' Trump explained at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.
'This baby could have been Pavarotti! In fact, I'm going to find out who that baby is. I'm going to make a deal with their parents because we can take that baby to training school and it will be the next great Pavarotti.'
'I want to sponsor the baby!' 'And the baby will sing someday in Philharmonic Hall.'
'This was a beautiful baby, and beautiful mother,' And the baby was crying, and I jokingly said, "Y'know what, that's okay. Let the baby cry. We love babies." You know, something to that effect,' 'Love babies!'
'And then about two minutes later, it didn't stop. It just went on, and I'm trying to speak in front of thousands – we had thousands of people in the room – And I said, "Alright." I actually said the first time, "Alright, keep the baby here, don't worry about it."Watch the video when you continue......
