Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was quickly rushed off stage by the Secret Service during a rally on Saturday in Nevada.

Trump was in the middle of a stump speech in Reno, Nevada on Saturday when agents rushed the stage and escorted him off. Reports indicate that threatening protestors in the crowd prompted the response.

Trump was uninjured during the incident.

The New York businessman returned to the stage moments later, saying "Nobody said it was going to be easy for us. But we will never be stopped. Never, ever be stopped."

Less than an hour after his rally ended, Trump issued the following statement:

"I would like to thank the United States Secret Service and the law enforcement resources in Reno and the state of Nevada for their fast and professional response. I also want to thank the many thousands of people present for their unwavering and unbelievable support. Nothing will stop us - we will make America great again!"

The Secret Service also issued a statement about the incident Saturday night.
