From Newsweek: Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump took the term “party faithful” a bit more literally than usual when they sang a renowned hymn after a woman took ill.
Trump was speaking on the final day of campaigning in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, on Monday night when he stopped after being told about a medical emergency among the crowd.
At the time, Trump had been recounting his 2016 election victory and criticizing Hillary Clinton for calling some of his supporters “deplorables,” The Hill reported.
Trump then said: “Is there a doctor in the house, please? Doctor? Please. Thank you.”
Emergency workers made their way to the elderly woman on the floor of the Show Me Center while Trump said on stage “take your time, take your time, relax.”
Trump urged the crowd to “say a little prayer,” and those behind the stage bowed their heads. Soon after, the audience began singing the Christian hymn “Amazing Grace.”
As the crowd broke into song, Trump nodded his head along with the words. After she was taken out of the arena, the president said of the singing “That was beautiful…hopefully she’ll be OK. That was really something. I want to just thank everybody for the way you behaved. That was beautiful.”
The Daily Mail reported how someone from the crowd yelled out: “Mr. President thank you for putting God first.”
The collegiate atmosphere contrasted somewhat with earlier on in the evening when Trump was introduced by talk show host Rush Limbaugh who had riled up the crowd by saying: “The Democrats haven’t even accepted that they lost the election in 2016. Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia. Hillary Clinton rigged that election,” he said, according to the Daily Caller.
