Trump’s secret service may have thwarted an assassination attempt in Reno tonight.
Trump got rushed offstage by secret service during a rally just after 9PM EST on Saturday, Nov. 5th 2016 in Reno, Nevada. This may have been an assassination attempt. In the below video you can hear escalating shouts of “Gun, Gun” from the audience as they try shouting louder than the crowd to alert secret service:
In the below clip posted by CBS News you can see two agents shuffling away from Trump’s podium. The audio muffles, and at 11 seconds in a young girl calls out “Daddy!” amidst the chaos.

Ben Jacobs of The Guardian tweeted a photo after the scuffle that supposedly shows a ‘Bald white guy in hoodie being led out in handcuffs after rushing stage at Trump’.

Trump returned to stage after the chaos cleared, but resumed speaking without seeming shaken nor stirred:
“Nobody said it was going to be easy for us, but we will never be stopped… never ever be stopped…”
“I want to thank the secret service, you guys are fantastic, they don’t get enough credit, they’re amazing people…”
“So let’s get back to repealing the defense sequester…”
