Trump Tells Reporter She Asked Him A Racist Question, Goes On To Lecture Her
President Donald Trump has just accused a female reporter of asking him a racist question during his post-election news conference inside the White House.
"On the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist. Some people saw that as emboldingly white nationalist."
That's when Trump cut her off: "I don't know why you'd say that. That's such a racist question."
The reporter from PBS, widely seen as one of the least partisan news outlets in the nation due to its funding, kept on: "Some people would say that the Republican Party is seen as supporting White Nationalists."
Trump could be heard in the background saying "Ugh, Ugh, I don't believe that."
Trump went on to say that he has the "highest poll numbers ever with African-Americans."
Trump is referencing a Fox News poll that shows a 40% approval rating. It must be noted, though, that was just one poll, and is questioned by mainstream pollsters. Remember: 88 percent of black voters opted to vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
After Trump used this as evidence he continued to berate the reporter for "the racist question," refusing to let her get away with confronting him on the issue of race, which many Americans are concerned with.
