Donald Trump, speaking in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Tuesday, could not seem to decide how he felt about a crying baby in his vicinity.

"Don't worry about that baby—I love babies," the Republican candidate said, to the mother of a baby that had started crying during his stump speech. "I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it. What a baby, what a beautiful baby. Don't worry, don't worry. The mom's running around, like, don't worry about it, you know? It's young and beautiful and healthy and that's what we want."

The audience laughed and clapped politely.

But later, when the baby continued crying, Trump was a little rougher.

"Actually, I was only kidding—you can get the baby out of here," Trump said firmly. "That's all right, don't worry. I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I'm speaking. That's OK. People don't understand. That's OK."
