‘I know you’re not thinking, you never do’: Trump spars with ‘loco’ media over trade, Kavanaugh

02 Oct 2018 National Radio TV of Afghanistan

Eager to promote his new trade deal with Canada and Mexico, US President Donald Trump got a little salty when reporters insisted on asking about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh instead.

During the White House press conference on Monday, Trump insisted on answering questions about the trade deal before addressing the Kavanaugh confirmation controversy. When ABC’s Cecilia Vega tried to bring up the judge, this exchange ensued.

She’s shocked that I picked her. It’s like in a state of shock,” Trump comments.

“I’m not, thank you Mr. President,” says Vega, standing up.

“That’s OK, I know you’re not thinking, you never do,” the president retorts.

“I’m sorry?” says Vega.

“No, go ahead. Go ahead,” says Trump.

Another reporter who tried to ask about Kavanaugh instead of the trade deal was told to hand over the microphone to someone else.

“Don’t do that. Excuse me? Do you have a question on trade? Don’t do that. That’s not nice,”Trump told her.

Eventually, though, he relented, commenting that “people are falling asleep” even though he considers trade one of the most exciting subjects.

“You don’t understand what I’m saying. You do understand, you just don’t want to report it that way,” he said, answering a reporter who asked about the scope of the FBI investigation into allegations against Kavanaugh.
