Fox News’ Chris Wallace Destroys Trump’s False Claims About ‘Send Her Back’ Chant in 24 Seconds Flat

‘[Trump] posted a tweet that night, which is on the front page of the New York Times today, a tweet talking about how great the crowd is’

EXCERPT:

WALLACE: “Then at that rally on Wednesday presided over a crowd that said, send her back, about Omar for 13 full seconds before he started talking, and he only started talking after the chant ended. And then posted a tweet that night which is on the front page of 'The New York Times' today, a tweet talking about how great the crowd is. Never said anything about disagreeing with the chant, until he was told by Republican leaders and reportedly by his daughter, Ivanka, to -- to pull back. So, you know, politics isn’t bean bag. It's tough, it is competitive, and the idea of painting your party — your opponents too far to the extreme and out of the mainstream one would expect that. You’re going to hear it from Democrats about Trump, from Trump about Democrats. But what happened this week was something very different and it took a tone that a lot of people thought went too far."
