Fence jumper at Trump rally talks

- A man arrested and charged after he tried to get on the stage at a Donald Trump campaign rally in Ohio on Saturday reportedly told police he planned to grab the microphone and yell that Trump is a racist but didn't intend to hurt anyone.

The Dayton Daily News says it obtained a report from police that included comments the 22-year-old made to officers after his arrest.

Cell phone video from the rally provided by rally-goer Joel M. shows security hauling the protester away.

As officers surrounded Trump, the crowd could be heard booing and chanting Trump’s name. Trump supporters then cheered as the protester was led away, chanting "USA, USA".

Trump made a double thumbs up to the crowd.  Some supporters could be heard shouting things like, "kill him," and, "kick his [expletive].”

Trump thanked the officers, adding a thanks for the crowd.

"Thank you for the warning. I was ready for him, but it's much easier if the cops do it," Trump said to the crowd.
