Trump could be seen taking a step back and collected himself. He attempted to make light of the moment, pretending to wipe away tears.

“Don’t say that,” he said. “I’ll start to cry and that wouldn’t be good for my image. We don’t … you don’t want to see me cry.”
The president said that a similar chant broke out during a rally in North Carolina.
Several thousand people attended the rally in Michigan.
“This is not the crowd of a person who comes in second place,” Trump said. “Tell your governor to open up your state!” he demanded, referring to Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, adding that the state would be better if it “had a governor who knew what the hell she was doing.”
Trump is slated to visit Nevada over the weekend, despite airport authorities saying that a scheduled rally won’t be held.
A campaign spokesperson, Tim Murtagh, told news outlets: “President Trump will be traveling to Nevada on the dates planned. Additional details will be announced soon … Democrats are trying to keep President Trump from speaking to voters because they know the enthusiasm behind his re-election campaign cannot be matched by Joe Biden.”
