Trump pauses North Carolina rally after attendee suffers medical emergency

 March 4, 2024

Donald Trump paused a MAGA rally Saturday after a person in the crowd had a medical emergency. 

The concerning incident took place at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, where Trump campaigned ahead of the state's primary on Super Tuesday.

Emergency at MAGA rally

Videos show Trump standing quietly as medics attend to the person. The nature of the emergency was not immediately clear.

During the pause, a person shouted, "You knocked him dead, Trump!" as members of the crowd start singing the hymn "Amazing Grace."

After about four minutes of silence, Trump took back the podium and praised the emergency response.

"Did you see? That medic was unbelievable. The way he was working. Boom, boom. Right?" Trump said.

"That's an incredible job, wow. Unbelievable. That's what we have in this country, it's like incredible," he added.

"I think he's gonna be alright"

Trump expressed concern about the person who suffered an emergency, saying, "That's a bad one right there. I think he's gonna be alright, but boy."

"That was - did you see him working? He was working. He knew what he was doing. He was doing a job, to get him going, get that heart going," Trump said.

Trump closes in on primary victory

Trump's rallies have sometimes been interrupted by protesters and the occasional medical episode.

At a rally in Las Vegas earlier this year, Trump similarly paused the event and urged medics to attend to someone in attendance.

"Medical. Medical please," he added. "Are they OK? Doctor in the house, thank you."

The Greensboro rally on Saturday was Trump's first of the day. He later flew to Virginia to continue his pre-Super Tuesday sprint.

"Judged and convicted"

In a defiant speech, Trump thundered against rival Joe Biden and turned his opponent's narrative about democracy on its head, pledging that Biden would be "judged and convicted" at the ballot box.

Trump is widely expected to win the Republican primary after securing a series of decisive wins in early contests, leaving his last challenger, Nikki Haley, with a yawning gap to close.

The frontrunner swept caucuses in Michigan, Idaho, and Missouri on Saturday, a final warning to Haley ahead of Tuesday's high-stakes contests.
