Katy Tur stumbled while interviewing Donald Trump
Tur was really against Trump’s idea of labeling Mexican immigrants as ‘rapists’ and ‘criminals’. She also got the opportunity to interview Mr. Trump while she was covering the campaign.
Tur was really nervous as she wasn’t a political reporter and didn’t have many ideas about Mr. Trump. The interview lasted for 29 minutes. But, Trump gave negative opinions to Tur. Trump accused Tur of being naïve, clueless and even shamed her when she stumbled.
Watch Katy Tur interviewing Donald Trump:
Just after the cameras went down, Trump told Tur:
"You couldn't do this. You stumbled three times.
"It doesn't matter if I stumble. I'm not running for president."
