    US election 2016: Trump to target Democratic states

    Nov.6, Washington: Republican candidate Donald Trump has said he is going to target states seen as Democratic strongholds in the last two days before the US election. He will visit Pennsylvania, Michigan and also Minnesota, which has not gone Republican since 1972.

    On Saturday evening, he was briefly rushed off the stage by secret service agents at a rally in Reno, Nevada.

    Mr Trump had stopped speaking after seeing something in the auditorium, but returned to the stage minutes later.

    When he resumed his speech, Mr Trump said: "Nobody said it was going to be easy for us... I want to thank the Secret Service."

    There were reports that the man had a gun, but the secret service later said that "upon a thorough search of the subject and the surrounding area, no weapon was found".

    Austyn Crites, the man at the centre of the disturbance, was holding a placard saying Republicans Against Trump when he was tackled by security officials.

    "I keep repeating - I'm down, someone is trying to choke me - and I'm saying to these people; 'There is no gun, I just have a sign'," Mr Crites explained after the incident.
