Trump tells mother to 'get the baby out of here' during rally

While stumping in Virginia on Tuesday, Donald Trump asked the parent of a crying baby to leave his rally.

At first, the GOP presidential nominee told the parent to not worry about the baby. "I love babies," he added.

However, moments later, while the baby was still crying, Trump stopped his speech to ask the parent to leave.

"Actually I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," Trump said. "I think she really believed me that I like a baby crying while I am speaking."

The billionaire businessman also got social media fired up when he received a Purple Heart from veteran before his speech began.

"I always wanted to get the Purple Heart," Trump said. "This was much easier."

Hillary Clinton was quick to respond to the remark on Twitter.

"This from a man who says he's 'sacrificed' for our country," Clinton's team wrote, alluding to Trump's recent remarks concerning comments made against him by the family of a fallen U.S. solider.

Just as he has done since the start of his campaign, Trump hammered away on the "rigged" system and media.

"We're running against a rigged system and we're running against a dishonest media," Trump said.

Trump's tweet rant during Hillary Clinton's speech
Hillary's refusal to mention Radical Islam, as she pushes a 550% increase in refugees, is more proof that she is unfit to lead the country.
Our way of life is under threat by Radical Islam and Hillary Clinton cannot even bring herself to say the words.
Hillary will never reform Wall Street. She is owned by Wall Street!
Hillary's vision is a borderless world where working people have no power, no jobs, no safety.
Hillary's wars in the Middle East have unleashed destruction, terrorism and ISIS across the world.
