November 7, 2018 1:21 p.m.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday shut down a reporter who was asking him about racist comments he has allegedly made in the past, declaring “I have never used racist remarks.”

“I would never do that and I don’t use racist remarks and you know what, if I did, you people, you would’ve known about it,” he said. “I’ve been hearing there were tapes for years and years, there were tapes. Number one, I never worried about it because I never did. I never use — I have never used racist remarks.”
