"All right. Get 'em out. Get 'em out," Trump said as the demonstrator was removed. "Get 'em outta here."

As the woman was leaving, media cameras caught her making obscene gestures toward the crowd and the stage, which was met with responses of "USA! USA!" from attendees moments later.

The president's rallies are a frequent target for protesters, and administration officials have been subject to more demonstrations in recent weeks over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump faced criticism for his rhetoric aimed at protesters who interrupted his rallies, after he seemed to encourage his supporters to "knock the crap" out of a protester.
