Watch: Trump Rally Crowd Protests When He Says He Wants to ‘Tone it Down’

On the same day as a shooter opened fire at a Pittsburgh synagogue killing 11, President Donald Trump went ahead with his rally in Illinois.

After making brief, scripted remarks on the deadly shooting, Trump quickly changed his tone and said, “Let’s have a good time.”

Then he said this: “If you don’t mind, I’m going to tone it down just a little bit. Is that okay?”

The crowd shouted back, “NOOOO!!!”

The president then said he had a “feeling” they might say that.

Trump was previously asked by reporters —  on the same day as the mail bomber’s arrest — if he intended to tone down his rally rhetoric.

Trump responded that instead of toning it down, he could really “tone it up.”
