Donald Trump's attempt to disassociate himself with the racist "Send her back" chant he incited while trashing Rep. Ilhan Omar (R-MN) in North Carolina on Wednesday night is being greeted with rolled-eyes and exasperation by Twitter users who have seen the video.


Asked about the offensive chant by ABC White House reporter Jonathan Karl  who pressed the president with “Why didn’t you ask them to stop saying it?” Trump answered, “Number one, I think I did. I started speaking very quickly.”

He then added, “I disagree with it, by the way. But it was quite a chant and I felt a little bit badly about it but I will say this, I did and I started speaking very quickly, I started rather fast as you probably noticed.”

With video showing Trump basking in the nativist response from his adoring fans for approximately 13 seconds, Twitter users were quick to call out the president for telling them to believe him and not what they witnessed with their own eyes.
