USSS did an excellent job stopping the maniac running to the stage. He has ties to ISIS. Should be in jail! https://t.co/tkzbHg7wyD?ssr=true

“USSS did an excellent job stopping the maniac running to the stage. He has ties to ISIS. Should be in jail!” Trump Tweeted on Saturday evening. The Tweet includes a video apparently indicating the individual’s Islamic ties. No more information is available at this time.
Breitbart reported that after the agents rushed on stage to protect Trump, and removed the individual, Trump continued his rally unfazed.
“Thank you for the warning. I was ready for him, but it’s much easier if the cops do it, don’t we agree? What a great job!” he said, before continuing his speech.
