A reporter asked him if he was rattled. The president said he was not. "Do I look rattled?" he asked calmly. "I didn't even think about not coming back," Trump added.
Trump continued: "There was an actual shooting and somebody has been taken to the hospital, I don't know the condition of the person. Seems that the person was shot by the Secret Service. It's unfortunate that this is the world but the world has always been a dangerous place."
