PBS Report Just Called Trump A Liar To His Face On Live TV, He Didn’t Take It Well: Watch
Donald Trump made a complete fool of himself on the international stage on Monday when he made multiple wrong accusations during a press conference at the G7 summit. One of the accusations he made was that former President Barack Obama kicked Russia out of the G7 because he was “embarrassed” that Putin had taken Crimea on Obama’s watch.
“President Obama was not happy that this happened because it was embarrassing to him, and he wanted Russia to be out of what was called the G8. He was outsmarted by Putin, he was outsmarted. President Putin outsmarted President Obama,” he said.
But Trump’s false claims were quickly shut down by White House correspondent for the PBS NewsHour, Yamiche Alcindor.
“Why do you [keep repeating] the misleading statement that Russia outsmarted President Obama when other countries have said that the reason why Russia was kicked out was very clearly because they annexed Crimea. Why keep repeating what some people would see as a clear lie?” she asked.
Trump didn’t seem too thrilled after getting called out.
Take a look at the altercation in the video clip below:
