A protester attempted to storm the stage Saturday morning at an event for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and new footage from the Dayton, Ohio, rally reveals that the situation was actually much more dangerous than it originally appeared.
In the extended video, a man is seen jumping a barrier and passing several security guards. Ultimately, he was stopped only feet away from Trump.
As Secret Service agents rushed the platform to surround the GOP front-runner, the man was swiftly removed from the event site.
“Kick his ass, Donald,” one audience member can be heard screaming. Another can be heard yelling, “Rip his hair out!”
“Thank you for the warning,” Trump says. “I was ready for him, but it’s much easier if the cops do it.”
