WASHINGTON, D.C., August 2, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Planned Parenthood presented Donald Trump as cold hearted for jokingly ejecting a baby from his rally, in the process touched provoking massive backlash that Planned Parenthood may not be the most sensitive organization to babies’ needs.
At a rally in Ashburn, Virginia, today the Republican presidential candidate sought to reassure a concerned mother that her crying baby did not upset him.
“Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies,” he said. “Don’t worry. I love babies. I hear that baby crying – I like it.”
“What a beautiful baby,” he continued as the crowd applauded. “Don’t worry. Don't worry. The mom's running around like — don’t worry about it, you know.”
“It's young and beautiful and healthy and that's what we want,” he said.
He briefly returned to his speech’s theme of trade deals with China before he heard the baby crying again.
“Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” he quipped. “That’s alright. Don’t worry. I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking.”
