Donald Trump appeared to insult Hillary Clinton’s physical appearance at a rally in Greensboro, North Carolina, Friday, saying he “wasn’t impressed” when Clinton walked in front of him at Sunday’s town hall debate.
After Sunday’s town hall debate, viewers took to social media to call Trump out for “looming” and “lurking” behind Clinton as she moved around the open town hall stage.
Trump dismissed those claims.
“She walks in front of me, you know?” Trump said. “And when she walked in front of me, believe me, I wasn’t impressed.” On video of the speech, the rally crowd can be heard cheering.
“But she walks in front of me and she takes a question and she walks back. And that was the end of that, no problem,” he continued. “Then she said the next day I invaded her space! Give me break.”
After the debate, Clinton told journalists on her plane that Trump was “very present” at the debate.
On Friday, Clinton told Ellen DeGeneres that Trump “literally stalked” her at the debate.
