WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump paused his rally for nearly three minutes after protesters interrupted his remarks Wednesday evening in Cincinnati.

The protesters held signs that said "Immigrants Built America" and "Chinga La Migra" — Spanish for "f*** border patrol." The protest broke out when Trump began talking about immigration and building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

One of the president's supporters took the "Immigrants Built America" banner out of the protester's hand and threw it in the crowd.

The protester then held up the second sign, which the same supporter tried to rip from the protester's hand. The action resulted in a small scuffle before the protesters were escorted out.

"Cincinnati, do you have a Democrat mayor?" Trump asked sarcastically during the long pause in his stump speech.

John Cranely, mayor of Cincinnati, is a Democrat.

Later in the rally the president was again briefly interrupted by another protester.
