WASHINGTON (CNN) — Donald Trump’s Las Vegas rally Thursday was interrupted when an adoring Hispanic fan was led to the stage and proclaimed that Latinos love the Republican businessman.

“Hello Mr. Trump!,” said the woman, who Trump kissed as she clutched a copy of his People magazine cover. “I’m Hispanic and I vote for Mr. Trump! We vote for Mr. Trump! Yes! Mr. Trump! We love you! We love you, all the way to the White House!”

Trump, who has come under fire for his comments about Hispanics, seemed to understand how it might be perceived.

“I swear to you — I think she’s totally beautiful and great — I’ve never met her before, I swear,” he said, as he criticized his own nose and his face in the cover photograph.

“It’s beautiful and perfect,” said the woman, who was not identified but said she was originally from Colombia.

Trump sent her off the stage after obliging the woman’s request for an autograph.
