Chelsea Clinton on Thursday hit President Trump for his response to a question on anti-Semitism during his first full press conference as president.

A Jewish reporter asked Trump how he would address rising anti-Semitism in the United States during the briefing. Trump said the question was "not a simple or fair question."

He went on to say: "I’m the least anti-Semitic person you’ve ever seen in your entire life. Number two, racism, the least racist person. In fact, we did very well relative to other people running as a Republican.”

Clinton hit his defensive response in a tweet, saying, "One would think he would have thought of an answer since yesterday. Here's one: There's no place for any bigotry, ever, in America."

Trump has taken flak for his response during the press briefing, especially after he was criticized for a White House International Holocaust Remembrance Day statement that failed to mention Jewish victims specifically.
