A protester was stopped by Secret Service agents after he lunged at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during a rally in Cleveland on Friday.
The agents temporarily formed a protective ring around the Donald before quickly leaving the stage and allowing Trump to carry on with his speech at Dayton international airport in Ohio.
It was not immediately clear why the agents rushed onto the stage Saturday morning to surround Trump, who appeared to jolt after hearing something in the audience standing behind his right shoulder.

Trump did not explain what had happened, but said: “Thank you for the warning. I was ready for ’em, but it’s much better if the cops do it, don’t we agree?”
Both the Secret Service and Trump campaign staff did not immediately respond to questions seeking comment.
Trump was able to finish his speech and did so without apparent incident.
The billionaire businessman called off a rally on Friday night in Chicago, after protesters filled the arena where he was scheduled to speak.
So this just happened at Trump rally in Dayton. No wonder he is sweating so much, crowd is on edge.
