Cameras showed a woman wearing yellow being escorted out by security personnel.

"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.

The president has been an active campaigner on behalf of Republicans he sees as loyal to his agenda ahead of the November midterm elections.

Republicans are hoping to maintain control of the Senate, where they have a 51-49 majority. Casey is seen as a vulnerable Democrat and a prime target for Republicans.

Trump won the state in 2016 by less than a point over Clinton.
