Trump Claims He Was “Too Busy” to Watch Impeachment Inquiry

HeadlineNov 14, 2019

At the White House, President Trump denied watching the televised impeachment inquiry, saying he was “too busy” working for the American people. Despite that, Trump tweeted or retweeted about the inquiry more than 30 times throughout the day. During a joint press conference with Turkey’s authoritarian President Recep Tayyip Erdogan just after the hearings wrapped up, Trump called on reporters from far-right news outlets — One America News Network and Fox News — before demanding a question from “friendly reporters.”

President Donald Trump: “Would you like to pick somebody? A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters we like to see. There aren’t too many of them around.”
