President Trump addresses his feelings toward the “send her back” chant during his recent North Carolina rally.
In a tweet Saturday, the president posted a video form the event when the chant broke out. He said “as you can see, I did nothing to lead people on, nor was I particularly happy with their chant.”
During a press conference earlier this week, the president said he “was not happy” when the chant broke out, and said he “disagreed with it.”
This comes amid criticism the president didn’t do enough to stop the chant. On Friday President Trump said fake news is “crazed” over the crowd’s chant from his “packed” rally.
It is amazing how the Fake News Media became “crazed” over the chant “send her back” by a packed Arena (a record) crowd in the Great State of North Carolina, but is totally calm & accepting of the most vile and disgusting statements made by the three Radical Left Congresswomen…

He also said it’s amazing how mainstream media outlets are “calm and accepting” of “the most vile and disgusting statements” by three radical left congresswomen.
President Trump said fake news even covered a small “staged” crowd when Ilhan Omar” arrived in Minnesota, a state he will win in 2020 because, “they cant’ stand her hatred of the country.”
