Angry Trump Snaps at Black Reporter When Asked About Putin Meeting, ‘You are So Untrusting!’
Donald Trump went off on White House reporter April Ryan on Wednesday as he took questions from journalists in the Oval Office.
As Trump sat beside Polish president Andrzej Duda, he was asked about how Russia has denied a recent statement of his that they are supposedly withdrawing military forces from Venezuela.
“Well, let’s just see who’s right,” Trump said. “You’ll see in the end whose right okay? You just watch it. And we’ll see who’s right. Ultimately, I’m always right.”
After that, Ryan got in a question about who Trump expects to meet with at the upcoming G20 summit. When she tried to follow up by asking if he’ll be flanked by national security officials when he meets Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, the president responded: “well it’s probably easier because you people are so untrusting so it’s probably better.”
“Would you like to be in the room? I can imagine you would be,” Trump continued with visible agitation. “I think it’s probably easier if we have people in the room because you people don’t trust anything.”
Trump is scheduled to meet with Putin at the G20 meeting in Japan near the end of June. He and the White House have been notoriously secretive about his meetings with the Russian president in the past, and several meetings have happened between the two men with nobody else present besides their translators.
