8 things President Trump actually said during his press conference

“Let’s do a press conference today!” Brace yourselves…

By Lorna Gray
Donald Trump held a surprise press conference with members of the media on Thursday afternoon Washington D.C. time, reportedly walking into the Oval Office earlier that day saying "Let's do a press conference today".
It's been called 'erratic' and 'unhinged' and it's not hard to see why. Here are some of the best(?) parts...

1. President Trump explained what uranium was. Got it wrong.

"We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country. You know what uranium is, right? This thing called nuclear weapons, and other things. Like, lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things. Nobody talks about that."

2. President Trump labelled an entire country "fake news".

"Russia is fake news. Russia – this is fake news put out by the media. The real news is the fact that people, probably from the Obama administration because they’re there, because we have our new people going in place, right now."

3. President Trump asked a black reporter if she was friends with black members of Congress (Why of COURSE!).

April Ryan: "Will you meet with the Congressional Black Caucus?"
Trump: "I would. You want to set up the meeting? Are they friends of yours?"

4. President Trump awarded himself title of "least racist" and "least anti-Semitic" person.

“Folks, number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you have seen in your entire life. Number two, racism. The least racist.”

5. President Trump told a porky pie when it came to electoral college votes.

"I put it out before the American people. I got 306 electoral college votes. I guess it's the biggest electoral college win since Ronald Reagan."
Reporter: "In fact President Obama got 365..."

6. President Trump made this admission about drugs:

"Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars."

7. President Trump took the opportunity to discuss his favourite TV shows.

"And I have to say Fox and Friends in the morning - they are very honourable people."

8. President Trump also made it obvious he's still threatened by Hillary.

"Does anybody really think that Hillary Clinton would be tougher on Russia than Donald Trump? Does anyone in this room really believe that, ok?"
Until next time, folks...
