Trump boots baby from Va. rally: 'You can get the baby out of here' (VIDEO)

Donald Trump asked a mother with a crying baby to leave a Virginia campaign rally Tuesday, after first indicating the distraction didn't bother him. 

At the rally in Ashburn, Va., Trump first stopped his speech to acknowledge a crying baby in the audience. He seemed to joke about it, telling the mother repeatedly not to worry about it.

"Don't worry about that baby, I love babies," Trump said. "I love babies! I hear that baby crying, I like it!"

"I like it! What a baby. What a beautiful baby," he continued.

"It's young and beautiful and healthy, and that's what we want."

But a few minutes later, it became apparent that what Trump wanted was for the still crying baby to leave.

"Actually I was only kidding. You can get the baby out of here," he said, again stopping his speech as laughter erupted from the crowd.

"I think she really believed me that I loved having a baby crying while I'm speaking," he added.

"That's ok. People don't understand. But that's ok."
