Just three days before being abruptly escorted out of a press briefing by Secret Service, President Trump spoke to workers at a Whirlpool factory in Clyde, Ohio at one point saying, “I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you see me for a while.”
Trump spoke to workers to tout his efforts to restore America’s manufacturing base. During the speech, Trump also spoke about his working to reform prescription drug pricing by the pharmaceutical industry, as previously reported by 100% FED Up. While speaking about reducing drug prices by cutting out the middlemen, Trump said he has made a lot of enemies.

“…So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other President is going to do what I do. No other President would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy,” the President said.
On Monday afternoon, President Trump was abruptly pulled by Secret Service from a press briefing due to shots fired by Secret Service agents directly outside the White House complex. The President was speaking on the topic of fraudulent, mail-in ballots prior to being whispered to by a White House Secret Service agent. Trump abruptly left the press briefing room and was briefed on the situation from the Oval Office.
Leftist Democrats were quick to mock and harass the President for following Secret Service protocol. Twitter user, Cernovich, was quick to point to the President’s comments to Whirpool workers:
Trump said this last week.
Moments ago a man was shot outside of the White House. https://t.co/7URD6RvbU8

Others mocked President Trump as a “Bunker B*tch” alleging that he hid in the White House bunker. Upon returning to his press briefing, Trump was asked by reporters where he was taken. President Trump informed reporters and the American people of the situation – a shooting outside the White House complex – and that he was briefed of the situation from the Oval Office.
President Trump answered questions of his personal reaction to the situation telling reporters “I didn’t even think about not coming back.” Further, Trump was asked, “Are you rattled by this at all, Mr. President?” The President quickly responded, “Do I seem rattled?”

Far-left radicals also mocked and harassed former Secret Service agent and Fox News contributor, Dan Bongin0, for applauding the Secret Service and President’s reaction to the unexpected situation.
