Trump unfazed by phone-throwing protester while speaking to NRA: ‘I will never, ever, let you down’

Not everyone was happy with President Donald Trump’s visit to the annual meeting of the National Rifle Association in Indiana.

As the president took the stage at the event, someone hurled what appeared to be a cellphone toward him. Trump could hardly be bothered with the protester. He simply watched the phone miss him by a mile and then went right into a talk that earned plenty of applause from the audience in attendance.

The man who threw the phone did not have as good of a time. He was ejected from the event and arrested.

Check out the phone-throwing moment below and be sure to keep an eye on the president’s casual reaction:

Trump went on to address both gun rights and the recent release of the Mueller report.

On the Mueller report, the president said he stopped a “coup” from ending his presidency.

“They tried for a coup, didn’t work out so well. And I didn’t need a gun for that one, did I?” he said. “All was taking place at the highest levels in Washington, D.C. You’ve been watching, you’ve been seeing.”

Trump continued, “You’ve been looking at things that you wouldn’t have believed possible in our country. Corruption at the highest level. A disgrace. Spying, surveillance, trying for an overthrow. And we caught them. We caught them.”

He later blasted Democrats for being angrier than ever before despite the country’s future being “brighter” than ever.

“America’s future has never been brighter and yet Democrats have never been angrier,” said Trump. “Especially now that their collusion delusion has been exposed to the world as a complete and total fraud.”

He also warned the audience about “far-left radicals in Congress.”

“Far-left radicals in Congress want to take away your voice, your jobs, your rights, and they especially want to take away your guns. You know that,” he said. “They want to take away your guns. You better get out there and vote.”

Trump also announced that he will unbind the United States from the U.N. Arms Treaty, which was signed by John Kerry in 2013 — he was secretary of state at the time. The treaty was an attempt to regulate international weapons trade.

The president even signed a document asking the Senate to stop the ratification process.

“My administration will never ratify the UN Arms Trade Treaty,” Trump said.

President Trump assured the crowd that he has no intention of disappointing them.

“I will never, ever, let you down,” he said.

The president was introduced at the NRA event by Vice President Mike Pence, who touted the Trump administration’s strong stance in support of the Second Amendment. The vice president also said conservatives should be focused on more than just the next election.

“The National Rifle Association stands for freedom,” said Pence. “It won’t be enough to win the next election. We’ve got to win the next generation.”

Trump tweeted about the “enthusiasm” from the NRA crowd following his speech.

“Great NRA crowd and enthusiasm in Indiana. Thank you! Leaving now for meetings in the Oval Office,” he wrote.
