President Trump fired back at CNN’s Kaitlan Collins after the homophobic blogger blamed Trump supporters for the left-wing violence that erupted following George Floyd’s May 25 death.
At a White House press conference, Trump condemned the riots by Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs that have been ravaging Portland for the past 94 days.
Bizpac Review reports,
Last weekend, self-confessed Antifa/BLM supporter Michael Reinoehl shot and killed Trump supporter Aaron Danielson (a.k.a. – Jay Bishop).
Danielson was a Blue Lives Matter advocate and a member of the conservative activist group Patriot Prayer.
The President also blasted Joe Biden for refusing to denounce the murder and the nonstop left-wing violence.
That’s when Kaitlan asked: “Do you also want to take this chance to condemn what your supporters did in Portland?”
Collins was parroting the latest Democratic talking point, which is to shift the blame for the leftist riots on Trump supporters.
The President fired back: “YOUR supporters — and they are your supporters indeed — shot a young gentleman and killed him. Not with paint, but with a bullet. It’s disgraceful.”

President Trump then tried to field questions from other reporters. But Collins rudely shouted out questions about Kyle Rittenhouse, a 17-year-old who allegedly shot two men in self-defense during the Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin last weekend.
Trump said he was looking into the situation, which is being investigated by law enforcement officials.
