Donald Trump, trying to reassure a distressed mother with a crying baby, said Tuesday that he loves hearing babies cry at his rallies and told her not to worry — only to change his mind just a moment later.

“I love babies. I hear that baby cry, I like it,” Trump said at a campaign event here as a baby could be heard crying in the audience. “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.”

But less than two minutes later, as the baby continued to wail, Trump took back his words.

“Actually I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here,” he said to laughs. “I think 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.”

Later on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, speaking about the incident, asked, “You wonder who the baby is.”

“I saw that Donald Trump kicked a crying baby out of an event earlier today, so as I’m thinking about pre-K, sometimes you wonder who the baby is. Right? You wonder who the baby is,” the former Virginia governor said to laughter and clapping.

He later tweeted, “First Trump attacked the Hotel Roanoke. Then a Gold Star VA family. Today, he kicked a baby out of a VA rally. Virginia is not for haters!”
