After Donald Trump expressed his love for babies, he asked a woman with a crying infant to leave his rally in Ashburn, Virginia on Tuesday.

When the baby began to cry, Trump told the crowd, "Don't worry about that baby, I love babies. I love babies. I hear that baby crying. I like it. I like it! What a baby! What a beautiful baby. Don't worry, don't worry. The mom's running around, like don't worry about it, you know. It's young and beautiful and healthy and that's what we want."

He then continued his speech, criticizing China for devaluing its currency but not before the baby disrupted him.

"Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here," Trump said. "That's alright. Don't worry. I thinks she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I'm speaking. That's ok. People don't understand. That's ok."

Democratic vice presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, mocked Trump while discussing pre-K programs during his Florida rally, saying, "I saw Donald Trump kicked a crying baby out of an event earlier today. As I'm thinking about pre-K, sometimes you wonder who the baby is."
