Heh, heh. Donald Trump has the dumbest leftists imagining things and then defending what they imagine.
Negress April Ryan is having her 15 minutes of fame for her claim that President Trump said that white people built America.
It’s too bad he didn’t say it. He should say it.
White House reporter April Ryan is adamant that she heard President Trump say during the campaign that “white” America was responsible for building the country.
In a series of Twitter messages between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, Ryan defended her claim.
“A question: So what does ‘we built this country’ mean in front of a predominantly white crowd?” Ryan said in one tweet.
In another message, she produced a clip from a campaign rally in 2016, in which Trump said, “We cannot let our First Amendment rights be taken away from us, folks.” He added, “We are law-abiding people. We’re people that work very hard, we’re people that built this country and made this country great. And we’re all together.”
Trump also said he and his supporters have to “fight back” against “organized, professionally staged wise guys.”
The rally was hosted in Ohio, one day after a separate rally was canceled in Chicago amid violent protests that many believe was racially charged and critics say was delibrately provoked by Trump.
Ryan, who works for American Urban Radio Networks, noted that the crowd was “predominantly white” as evidence that Trump was specifically referring to white people, even though he never mentioned race.
Ryan declined to comment on the issue when reached by the Washington Examiner.
