Donald Trump isn’t taking a holiday from controversy as video of him from a campaign rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on Tuesday night where he appears to mock a reporter is making headlines.
The U.S. Republican presidential candidate is now denying that he wasn’t making fun of the reporter.
In a statement posted on his Twitter account Thursday afternoon, Trump said he had no idea what the reporter Serge Kovaleski looked liked or “his level of intelligence.”
Trump goes on to add, “I merely mimicked what I thought would be a flustered reporter getting out of a statement he made long ago. If Mr. Kovaleski is handicapped, I would not know because I do not know what he looks like. If I did know, I definitely would not say anything about his appearance.”
