Donald Trump Brags About Electoral College Votes (Again) When Asked About Anti-Semitism

"We were not supposed to crack 220", he continued as Netanyahu looked on. You know that, right? Neither had they seen the White House articulate a response to this apparently worsening problem, Turx said.

"There's tremendous enthusiasm out there", he said.

"Three hundred and six electoral college votes", he said enthusiastically while explaining his campaign wasn't expected to get 221. But what connection is he drawing between charges of bigotry and the strength of his win in the election?

Trump responded by talking about his election numbers.

He then vowed: "We are going to stop crime in this country".

Turx followed up on Twitter, saying the president "clearly misunderstood my question".

The reporter then chimed in to try to finish his question, and Trump told him to be quiet and called him a liar.

The Trump administration drew criticism from Jewish groups late last month when it released a statement to memorialise victims of the Holocaust, but failed to mention Jews - 6 million of whom were killed by the Nazis. "I think we should put that to rest". Very divided and hopefully, I'll be able to do something about that.

"I think that you're going to see a lot different United States of America over the next three, four, or eight years".

"I want to find a friendly reporter", the president said at the one hour-and-18 minute mark, in possible open mockery of the forest of raised hands in front of him.

Trump noted that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who visited the White House a day earlier, had vouched for his love of the Jewish people. A son-in-law, and... three handsome grandchildren.

Trump fired back that the rise in anti-Semitic attacks is coming from his political opponents. Trump denied the allegations, along with highlighting his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is an observant Jew.

Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and director of the Anti-Defamation League, blasted Trump's comments in an interview with CNN following the news conference and called on Trump to answer the questions about what he termed the "crisis" of rising anti-Semitic acts and take "concrete steps" to resolve the issue. I think a lot of good things are happening.

"See, it just shows you about the press, but that's the way the press is". You're going to see a lot of love. Worse than asking just a non-simple question, Trump said, Turx had asked "a very insulting question", one that Trump refused to dignify with an answer.
