President Donald Trump ignored questions from Fox News journalist after an interview with Maria Bartiromo about his feud with the late Senator John McCain.
When Bartiromo said Trump’s feud with McCain had been a major news focus over the past week and “bashing” him had taken up a good deal of Trump’s time, Trump responded by saying it is no a “good portion” of his time and rather a “very small” one.
As reported by Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts, president Trump “glared” at him like never before over the questions on criticism of late Sen. John McCain. In the interview with Bartiromo, Trump said he only talks about McCain in response to questions.
“The president was not happy with us this morning either. He glared at me like I’ve never seen him glare at me before.”
Co-anchor exclaimed at the remark, saying they would have to “get to the bottom of that”.
ABC News White House Correspondent captured the glare Roberts was referring to in a video he posted on Twitter.
According to the president, he was forced to attack McCain in the first place because the Arizona politician had worked with Hillary Clinton to spread the “fake dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele.
“They gave it to John McCain, who gave it to the FBI for very evil purposes. That’s not good. And the other thing, he voted against repeal and replace — now he’s been campaigning for years for repeal and replace.”
Trump also blamed the media for fueling the dispute between McCain and himself, saying that he does not bring it up himself and only responds to questions from people.
The president appeared on the show to have a discussion about the economy, claiming he would keep it expanding with the help of his revamped economic foreign policies.
