Donald Trump accuses black reporter of asking 'racist question' during White House press conference

A black reporter is accused by Donald Trump as being racist after she raised a question regarding his “nationalist” rhetoric.


Trump was visibly touchy during his press conference at the White House the day after the results of the midterm elections which saw the Democrats taking back the House of Representatives and the Republicans overpowering the Senate.


When black reporter Yamiche Alcindor asked him if his frequent use of the word “nationalist” in his campaign rallies emboldened white nationalists, he cut her off and said,

"That's such a racist question … Let me tell you, it's a racist question."

He added,

"I love our country. I do. You have nationalists. 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. We have a lot of problems. But to say that, what you say is so insulting to me. It's a very terrible thing that you said."


In a tweet following the presscon, Alcindor explained she “was simply asking the questions the public wants to know.”


Alcindor added that in her past interviews with white nationalists, they appeared more excited over Trump than any other past presidents of the country.

“Even if President Trump doesn’t intend it, some see him as directly appealing to racists.”


Trump’s attack towards Alcindor follows his hostility towards CNN reporter Jim Acosta. When Acosta asked him about the migrant caravan on its way to Mexico, the president accused him of being a “rude, terrible person.”

CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them. You are a rude, terrible person. You shouldn’t be working for CNN.”


Trump previously threatened to open fire on migrants traveling from Mexico to the US border. He said that if they continued to throw stones at his military deployed at the border, he will consider it as a firearm and authorize his men to fire back.

Trump has been tightening the doors on migrants attempting to enter the US. He claims they are violent and a threat to the country.
