if we are limiting to this basic concept. I would put it to you would you rather him stay reading books to unaware children than showing a willingness to pretend to do something?

The children have already witnessed his reaction. This is what put the fear and confusion into his minds.
If someone displayed these characteristics and remained to for a further 10 mins (roughly) whilst reading a book with clearly something else on his mind, I feel this will amplify the fear in the children more than if he were to leave.
I also believe that would have been my opinion if I was a child( wasy to say i know) in the classroom, knowing his job.
Cheers for the response but how can you panic children who by your own admission will have little concept for it?
Secret service don't need to dive on him, he can walk out the class normally.
When people say him leaving would create fear and confusion for the children, what would they assume at that age? Really? Please think about it. Would they become emotionally unstable for a prolonged time ash a result of a president leaving the book club early. Would they assume terrorist acts.
He was gone for a purpose, those kids were a shield, that delay was intentional, the events planned.
