President Donald Trump decided to go ahead with his rally in Illinois on Saturday despite the attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 dead earlier in the day.
Justifying his choice during another speaking engagement in front of a group of Future Farmers of America, Trump said this:
At first I was thinking I’ll cancel. And then I said, you know, we can’t let evil change our life and change our schedule. We can’t do that. We have to go and do whatever we were gonna do, otherwise we give them too much credit. We make them too important. And you go with a heavy heart, but you go.
Illinois is the home state of Barack Obama.
