Transcript for Trump claims he was not happy with 'send her back' chant at campaign rally
We moved to Washington where things are also heating up that outrage over president trumps a racist tweets. Telling for freshman congress women of color to go back to their countries. This was followed by his raucous campaign rally in North Carolina where the crowd chanted send her back when the president talked about represented ill Han Omar's I wanna go to Karen Travers. At the White House. Caring and that the president has now said he disagreed with the chanting. He distanced himself from that send her back chant from his supporters at the rally in North Carolina on Wednesday night. Yesterday he had a photo opportunity in the Oval Office and our colleague Jon Karl asked him. Why didn't you stop the chance and the president said he wasn't happy with it that he disagreed with that. But he also pushed back Kimberly and said that he did jump and now the video shows a very different story. The chance to start the president pauses for about thirteen or fourteen seconds. Before he started speaking again about congresswoman Omar. And Kimberly the chance of that point had almost died down so it was the crowd stopping and then the president picking up his remarks. Yeah and so let's just talk about. Out I'm representative Omar's welcome when she got back to Minnesota. Very very supportive crowd for her last night several hundred people greeting her in her district. And it's with a standing ovation essentially giving her that show of support. She overwhelming support where she is from her district her constituents really really like her unsurprisingly she won overwhelmingly. When she was elected to congress and at the district that is very young and the district it's very diverse. It's not a district that would be considered trump country. Last night she said to that crowd that this was a distraction. From other issues and she did not want it to continue being a distraction. Certainly she wanted to start focusing on policy issues and dive right in talking about Medicare. Brawl. All right Karen Travers at the white house on thanks for joining us today we appreciate it.
