Seddique Mateen, who is apparently running for president of Afghanistan despite living in the United States, was seated behind Democrat Hillary Clinton on Monday at a rally in Kissimmee. Fla.
"If he was at our rally, it would be front-page news all over the world," Trump said. "It would be a disaster.
"They knew he was there — because those seats behind, they're very prized seats, and only people with a certain level of contact get those seats.
"I think that in this case, Rush is 100 percent right."
