Two Secret Service agents hurried Donald Trump off the stage at a Nevada political rally Saturday night after a disturbance broke out in front of the stage where the Republican presidential nominee was speaking.
With some attendees at the Reno event recording the incident on their phones, law-enforcement officials quickly brought the situation under control and officers were seen leading one man out of the event.
Trump returned moments later to speak, briefly alluding to the commotion and thanking the Secret Service before going on to prepared remarks.
"Nobody said it was going to be easy for us but we will never be stopped. I want to thank the Secret Service. They don’t get enough credit. They’re amazing people," Trump said in comments carried by MSNBC.

He then began talking about political issues. "So, let’s get back to repealing the defense sequester. Right now it doesn’t sound that exciting, but it’s very important," the candidate said, returning to his speech.
Trump issued a statement through his campaign: "I would like to thank the United States Secret Service and the law enforcement resources in Reno and the state of Nevada for their fast and professional response. I also want to thank the many thousands of people present for their unwavering and unbelievable support. Nothing will stop us — we will make America great again!"
