Donald Trump and members of his Secret Service team got trapped in an elevator on Friday (July 29) in Colorado.
The 70-year-old Presidential nominee was getting ready to speak at a rally when he got stuck and was rescued by members of the Colorado Springs Fire Department, according to CNN.
When he later took the stage at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, Trump blamed the fire marshal who “was probably a Democrat.”
“This is why our country doesn’t work,” Trump said, adding that the man, Brett Lacey, didn’t know “what he was doing.”
Fire Marshal Lacey later told KKTV, “There’s an old adage that when a fire marshal walks into a room, milk curdles. So because we’re always looking out for public safety and trying to make certain venues go off successfully and safely, sometimes there are people that aren’t very happy with some of the rules and regulations we’re required to enforce. But it doesn’t bother me at all.”
