Trump Interrupts Press Conference to Call ABC Reporter ‘Sleaze’
During Donald Trump‘s Tuesday press conference addressing the scrutiny of his claim to have raised $6 million for veterans groups, Trump suddenly went of on a tangent to call a reporter a “sleaze.”
“What I don’t want is when I raise millions of dollars, have people say– like this sleazy guy right over here from ABC, he’s a sleaze in my book,” Trump said.
“Why am I a sleaze?” ABC’s Tom Llamas could be heard asking.
“You’re a sleaze because you know the facts and you know the facts well,” Trump responded.
Llamas later took to Twitter to confirm he was the “sleaze” in question.
Trump just called me a “sleaze.” Should be an interesting week.
