President Donald Trump ignored shouted questions Friday from reporters about unconfirmed and likely false (see below) remarks about foreign countries, including one from April Ryan asking him directly if he is a racist. After Trump signed a proclamation in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., day, CNN analyst and White House reporter April Ryan could be heard asking Trump if he is a racist or would be apologizing for the comments.
APRIL RYAN is like so many other liberal reporters and politicians who want to destroy President Trump. The Russian collusion scandal is falling apart so this the next attempt at burying Trump. Who believes Dick Durbin or RINO Jeff Flake? We certainly don’t!
The Washington Post reported the claim that Trump called Haiti a “sh*thole” Do we believe POTUS said it? Consider that the source is The Washington Post and that should tell you it’s not true. Others in the meeting have weighed in that they don’t recall Trump saying that word:
Two of the president’s closest allies in the Senate, Republicans Tom Cotton and David Perdue, said in a statement: “we do not recall the president saying these comments specifically.”
APRIL SHOUTS AT PRESIDENT TRUMP:
“Mr. President, are you a racist?” Ryan asked. “Mr. President, will you respond to these serious questions about your statement, sir?”
Ryan could be heard arguing with someone else off-camera about her questions.
Trump did not acknowledge the questions, and after he shook hands with the people assembled for the proclamation, he left the room. Among those with him was King’s nephew, Isaac Newton Farris.
