Trump Pauses Missouri Rally After Woman Faints, Crowd Starts Singing ‘Amazing Grace’

Sean Hannity kicked off Election Day by going after the "fake news" media, just hours after ignoring his own declaration that he would not speak at President Trump's final rally before the midterms on Monday night in Missouri.

But at the IN rally, the president relished IN making Democrats go nuts and said he's not yet ready to tone it down.

"It's all fragile. Everything I told you about, it can be undone and changed by the Democrats if they get in", Trump told supporters on a telephone "town hall" organized by his re-election campaign.

Monday's rally appearance was not shown on Fox News Channel, but was aired on C-SPAN.

In 2010, when Fox News executives learned Hannity planned to broadcast his show from a Tea Party rally in Cincinnati, the network took action.

"Fox News does not condone any talent participating in campaign events", the network said in a statement to TheWrap on Tuesday.

Hannity had done his show as part of a Trump spectacle before in September at a rally in Las Vegas when the president was launching his prime-time media effort to win Senate confirmation for Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

The Trump campaign had announced beforehand that conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity would join the president for his last rally as "special guests", but before the rally, Hannity denied he was appearing to campaign for the president. He did return to tell the crowd to "say a little prayer", and soon after members began singing "Amazing Grace".

Israel, which considers Iran an existential threat and opposed the deal from the beginning, welcomed Friday's announcement. The White House did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment on the tweet and HBO's statement.

It happened nearly immediately after Trump took the stage in Missouri following an introduction from conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh, who had warmed the crowd up.

"I do eventually want to unite, " Trump said in Fort Wayne, Indiana, "but I'm driving them insane".

In his remarks on stage, Hannity also publicly disparaged his colleagues in the press corps at the back of the rally.

Trump told the medical staff to take their time as he stepped away from the podium and stopped talking.

Their appearances caused CNN to question Fox's credibility.

Trump will tweet about Fox News personalities and segments and is known to frequently talk to Hannity on the phone about his show's monologue. "Anyone doing business with Fox News should worry about the network's inability to enforce even the most bare minimum standards".

And after Hannity spoke with Trump backstage, Bill Shine, the former Fox News president turned White House communications director, offered him a high-five, according to the White House pool report. "The White House-Fox News nexus has rarely been as evident as tonight in Cape Girardeau", said Philip Rucker, White House bureau chief at The Washington Post, on Twitter.
