At a contentious press conference on Tuesday, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump blasted the media for making him “look bad” by insisting that he account for $6 million, which he had claimed to raise for veterans charities.
But it was ABC’s Tom Llamas who really got under the candidate’s skin.
“I’m not looking for credit,” Trump insisted. “But what I don’t want is when I raise millions of dollars have people say — like this sleazy guy over here from ABC. He’s a sleaze in my book.”
“You’re a sleaze!” the billionaire shouted as Llamas tried to respond. “Because you know the facts and you know the facts well.”
Moments later, Llamas noted the exchange on Twitter.
Trump just called me a "sleaze." Should be an interesting week.
