Donald Trump Jr and senior Donald Trump adviser, and girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, were forced to retreat from the stage after attendees sporting MAGA hats and shirts began to heckle the pair after learning a Q&A session had been cancelled.

The couple was soon forced to retreat backstage, ending the two-hour presentation 20 minutes from its start.
