President Donald Trump and his supporters joked about shooting undocumented immigrants at a rally in Panama Beach, Florida (more video below).
Trump was complaining about not being able to use violence to stop migrants: “How do you stop these people from crossing the border?”
Someone in the crowd shouted: “Shoot them!”
The crowd cheered, and Trump added: “Only in the panhandle can you get away with that statement.”
One female Trump supporter recalled the incident for ABC News reporter Rachel Scott.

One Trump supporter tells me she heard someone in the crowd shout “shoot em’”.
