VIDEO: Trump slams black reporter for racist question
At a lengthy and often heated press conference at the White House Wednesday, PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked President Trump a question about him being a “white nationalist” that he became extremely upset over.
“On the campaign trail, you called yourself a nationalist. Some people saw that as emboldening white nationalists. There are some people that say that the Republican Party is seen as supporting white nationalists because of your rhetoric,” she said.
“That’s a racist question,” Trump responded, adding, “I love our country. I do. You have nationalists and you have globalists. I also love the world, and I don’t mind helping the world, but we have to straighten out our country first.”
“What you said is so insulting to me, it’s a very terrible thing that you said to me,” the president told her.

Trump just pulled the reverse-racism card on @Yamiche for asking about his “nationalist” self-description and the emboldening of white nationalists.
