WATCH: Ultra-Orthodox Reporter Asks About Anti-Semitism, Trump Tells Him to Sit Down

    At a press conference Thursday, President Donald Trump called on a reporter from the Orthodox magazine Ami. Within moments, he had interrupted the reporter and told him to sit down.

    “Are you are a friendly reporter?” Trump asked.

    “I’m friendly,” said Ami’s Jake Turx.

    “Watch how friendly he is,” Trump said.

    Turx went on to ask about an “uptick in anti-Semitism,” citing threats called in to Jewish community centers.

    “Not a fair question,” Trump said. “Okay, sit down.”
