While speaking at a rally in Colorado Springs on Saturday, Donald J. Trump promised the crowd he will "get very tough" after an explosion rocked the New York neighborhood of Chelsea. The explosion happened around 8:35 pm EST. Trump spoke less than 45 minutes later.
NBC's Katy Tur reported on Twitter that sources on the Trump campaign told her that he was "briefed" about the explosion on the plane before speaking in Colorado.
