I Love It': Trump Celebrates Reporters Nearly Missing His New Hampshire Rally


"I have really good news for you..."

A giddy Donald Trump expressed excitement Thursday night at the fact that reporters traveling with him were running late to his New Hampshire rally.

"I have really good news for you," Trump enthusiastically told the crowd. "I just heard that the press is stuck on their airplane, they can’t get here. I love it."

He went on to tell his Granite State supporters that the traveling press gaggle was working on getting to the event as soon as possible, but said they would be roughly a half hour late. Trump said the reporters asked if he could hold off starting the rally, but he said, "Absolutely not, let's get going."

While the Republican presidential nominee found the development humorous, reporters stuck on a bus complained about the Trump campaign mishandling their travel arrangements. In the end, reporters arrived at the rally with only minutes to spare — literally.

Several journalists critiqued the GOP candidate — and hit him for not traveling with a protective press pool — on Twitter.
