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

TONIGHT, 9:00pm ET: Hannity One-on-One With President Trump on Election Eve

TONIGHT, 9:00pm ET: Hannity One-on-One With President Trump on Election Eve

Fox News Channel said it did not condone host Sean Hannity's appearance Monday night during President Donald Trump's campaign rally and called the episode "an unfortunate distraction".

Control of the House gives Democrats the ability to launch investigations into the president and stifle his agenda. "We have an extraordinary team of journalists helming our coverage tonight and we are extremely proud of their work", the statement read. "This was an unfortunate distraction and has been addressed".

He also denied that he had referred to any of his Fox colleagues as "fake news" in a second tweet.

A network spokesperson pleaded against Hannity taking the stage with the president in a statement on Tuesday.

"They do incredible work day in and day out in a fair and balanced way", he said on Twitter.

Hannity, who had said earlier on Monday that he would not appear on the campaign stage, tweeted that he was "surprised, yet honoured" by the president's request that he come up on stage.

Fox News canceled a planned Sean Hannity appearance at a Tea Party rally in Cincinnati in 2010.

The Gambia was welcomed back into the Commonwealth during a visit by the Gambian president to London earlier this year. Britain's Prince Charles has begun a nine-day Africa tour aimed at strengthening ties with Commonwealth nations.

Attendees at a Trump rally Monday sang "Amazing Grace" as an elderly woman who collapsed was tended to by medical professionals and eventually escorted out of the building on a stretcher.

Trump was expected to further address the results at a White House news conference later Wednesday.

Hannity tweeted on Tuesday that his decision to praise Trump on stage and urge voters to cast their ballots for Republicans was "NOT planned", just hours after he insisted he wouldn't appear on stage with the president at the event. But in an interview with The New York Times a year ago, he said he was a journalist, more specifically an advocacy or opinion journalist. Angelo Carusone of Democratic watchdog group Media Matters for America proposed a celebrity-enhanced attack campaign to punish Fox News for its partisanship. "They've been with us from the beginning", Trump said of Hannity and Pirro. Alisyn Camerota, herself a former Fox News reporter, wondered aloud if Fox could even still be called a "news organization". There is nothing real about what Fox News reports on any given day.

"Mr. President, I did an opening monologue today, and I had no idea you were going to invite me up here". "We're driving them insane".

Hannity and Pirro spent the night broadcasting from the rally while simultaneously hyping the crowd ahead of Trump's arrival.

"People throughout the company think a new line was crossed", one employee of the network told CNN.
