Following the President’s signing ceremony of the yearly proclamation for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, White House press reporters shouted questions at the president as he left the room, shaking hands along the way.
While this is rather typical of the press, today reporters were asking Trump to respond to “Mr. President are you a racist?” and categorizing it as a “serious question” in a follow-up loud comment.
The president’s response was the best and most appropriate, he didn’t respond.
JUST IN: Pres. Trump does not respond when asked during an event honoring MLK if he described African nations with the term "shithole," if he will apologize and if he is a racist. https://t.co/tHk5hLN24j pic.twitter.com/kf0JJpwdL8
