Since last Friday, the media has been going pretty hard on Trump. And, with all the bad press he’s had for the past week, he’s refused to take reporters’ questions. Well, he finally gave into the pressure and faced the music. After his nonsensical and nervous answers in this interview there’s one thing I can tell you for sure….Trump is having a very bad week.
Last Friday Trump may have finally pushed the media too far. His campaign promised them that he was going to make a statement on birtherism. But when the press showed up, they had to sit through a 30 minute infomercial for Trump’s new hotel. At the very end, he spent about 30 seconds discussing his new birther stance.
Did he admit he was wrong? No. Did he apologize? Not even close. What he did instead was to blame the entire thing on Hillary. Because of course he did.
And, after his little statement, he refused to answer any questions. The press realized they’d been conned–and they haven’t let up on him since.
On Tuesday, a story came out in the Washington Post with several shocking revelations about Donald Trump’s foundation. The Post found that Trump used money from his charity foundation to pay his own legal bills.
And again, after this story broke, Trump wouldn’t take questions. But Wednesday in Ohio at a rally, Trump sat down for a few questions from a local reporter in Toledo. Trump told him that he was running late and only had time for 3 questions.
Here’s the full transcript for the interview from ABC6/Fox28 in Toledo….
