President Donald Trump’s speech during a Sept. 10 campaign rally in Freeland, Michigan, was briefly interrupted by the president’s supporters chanting, “We love you” as the president stood at the podium.
The images show President Trump, who rarely expresses his emotions publicly, taking a step back from the podium and turning his head to face the crowd, in what appears to be a gesture to recover from the emotion.
HUGE Michigan crowd chants "WE LOVE YOU" and "FOUR MORE YEARS" to President Trump.

Seconds later, people began chanting “Four more years” to express their support for the president’s re-election on Nov. 3 when he faces the Democratic Party candidate, Joe Biden, at the polls.
After continuing with his speech, which took place outside the hangar of the MBS International Airport in Freeland and lasted one hour and 15 minutes, minutes later the people present sang “We love you” again, to which Trump thanked and signaled that they were going to make him cry.
“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.”

Trump won Michigan in 2016 by 10,704 votes, when he defeated Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Before reaching the White House, the then-Republican candidate had promised to return jobs to Michigan that had been lost during previous administrations.
During the first four years of his term, President Trump succeeded in bringing the United States to its lowest unemployment rate in 50 years. After the crisis caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus broke out, unemployment rose in Michigan due to economic paralysis and then fell back to 8.7 percent in July.
“After the last administration nearly killed the U.S. auto industry, I saved the U.S. auto industry,” Trump said at Thursday’s rally.
“No president has done for Michigan what President Trump has done for Michigan,” the president added in another installment of his speech according to a report by the local Detroit News.
Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel, a Michigan native, said that Thursday’s campaign event symbolized President Trump’s recognition that America needs to reopen its economy and it must do so in a “healthy and safe way.”
“That’s the reality for most Americans and most Michiganders that we can’t bunker down in our basement forever. We all have to go back to work,” McDaniel said, according to the Detroit News.
