Last night, President Trump gave his very first TV interview since the Inauguration on Friday.
ABC World News Tonight Anchor David Muir asked timely questions pertaining to Trump’s wall, yesterday’s Dow Jones record, and the outgoing President’s letter to incoming President Trump.
But one question in particular gave Trump the opportunity to hit the media, and he did—hard.
Muir asked the President if he could hear the voices of the Women’s March from inside the White House on Saturday.
Check it out (via ABC):
“No, I couldn’t hear them.”
He went on:
“The crowds were large, but you’re going to have a large crowd on Friday too, which is mostly pro-life people. You’re gonna have a lot of people coming on Friday… Some people say it’s gonna be larger, pro-life people, and they say the press doesn’t cover them.”
Trump was obviously referencing the March for Life, which happens annually on the anniversary of Roe V. Wade and typically sees around 500,000 in attendance.
David Muir seemed slightly thrown, only to respond:
“I don’t want to compare crowd sizes.”
Trump also called Muir to the carpet on a few other things—criticizing ABC’s coverage of his speech at the CIA and challenging Muir in his claim that there was “no evidence” of voter fraud.
He asked Trump, “Do you think that talking about millions of illegal votes is dangerous to this country without presenting the evidence?”
Muir also moved to dismiss a Pew report cited by the president, saying he called the author.
“He told me they found no evidence of voter fraud,” the ABC News anchor said.
“Really?” Trump replied. “Then why did he write the report?”
President Trump continues to show the media who’s boss, and you know what?
Americans like it.
