A reporter won praise on Monday after she called President Donald Trump, on one of her most questionable statements, directly in her face.
Paula Reid, of CBS, challenged Trump for his discredited claim that his government's policy of separating migrant children from their families on the US border. UU And Mexico was the same as that carried out by former President Barack Obama.
"Obama had a separation policy. We all had the same policy, "Trump said." You did not have it, sir. No, you did not, "Reid replied.
Trump said he "tried to do it differently" and said that "Obama had a separation policy," but "people do not like to talk about it." When Trump left, Reid said, "Sir, it was different, you decided to prosecute everyone on the border."
And some of the answers below:
I have been asking for this constantly: the media should think like lawyers doing a cross examination. Print the facts / quotes that support you and bring them to you. When Trump and @PressSec Lying, accusing your "witness".
