THIS is America – Woman Faints at Missouri Trump Rally, Crowd Prays for Her, Starts Singing
Medical emergencies are common at political rallies, since people often have to stand for hours. Yesterday, at a Missouri Trump rally, a woman fainted, needing medical attention. The President saw it, quietly called for a doctor, and asked the crowd to pray. He stepped respectfully away from the microphone until it appeared she would be alright. The crowd of thousands began to sing “Amazing Grace.” THIS is America, my friends.

The Daily Caller reported,
The crowd applauded and cheered as emergency medical staff rushed to the fainted woman. President Trump stepped away from the mic and looked on somberly for minutes on end. The crowd stood silently. “Say a little prayer. That is good. Say a little prayer,” Trump said to the audience. A minute later a spontaneous rendition of the classic hymn ‘Amazing Grace’ began to ring out.
The hymn echoed throughout the arena as the woman was carried out of the hall.
President Trump then turned to the audience, “I want to just thank everybody. That was beautiful. At the end was beautiful. ‘Amazing Grace.’ That was beautiful. Hopefully, she will be ok.
Folks, THAT was the America of my childhood. The America that cares. The America that has a President who openly asks for prayer, who is not ashamed of being a Christian.
