After President Trump signed a proclamation honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Friday, an obnoxious White House reporter yelled at him multiple times about a “s***hole” comment Trump allegedly made yesterday during immigration policy negotiations with congressional representatives.
Trump signed the King proclamation while surrounded by top African-American supporters, when CNN contributor and Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan started shouting at the president, The Hill reported.
“Mr. President, will you give an apology for the statement yesterday?” Ryan asked.
Another person, who has yet to be identified, shouted, “Mr. President, did you refer to African nations using the word “s***hole?”
“Mr. President, are you a racist?” Ryan continued. “Mr. President, will you respond to these serious questions about your statements, sir? Mr. President, are you a racist?”
President Trump denied using the language that was reported by The Washington Post, whose sources were “several people briefed on the meeting.”
Trump tweeted: “The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used. What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
Trump continued, adding: “Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!”
