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.”
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. https://t.co/XBtcgFnRxd— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) February 16, 2017
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.
