During an impromptu press gaggle in New Jersey Tuesday afternoon, Trump was asked about his tweets attacking Cuomo over the aborted bar fight that was caught on video.
“I think that what Chris Cuomo did was horrible,” Trump told reporters. “His language was horrible, he looked like a total out-of-control animal. He lost it. You’ve never seen me do that. And frankly, I don’t think anybody should defend him, because he spews lies every night.”
According to The Washington Post, Trump recently made the 12,000th false or misleading statement of his presidency. Trump has, in the past, offered to pay the legal fees of rallygoers if they carried out violence on his behalf.
