Releases second Kovaleski statement

Makes Statement

In response to Kovaleski’s claim that he interviewed him in the 80s, Trump releases a statement saying he doesn’t remember him.

I have met thousands of reporters over my lifetime. Very few treat me fairly, but those that do I have great respect for. Serge Kovaleski, who said he interviewed me in the 1908s is grasping at straws because he is embarrassed because after 14 years, with no retraction, he tried to change his story.

His meeting with me may have been the highlight of his career, it certainly wasn’t the highlight of mine. While I may have met him, I don’t remember him — he made no impression upon me. I have done many day in the life stories with reporters – the entire day in the life usually lasts for a very short period as far as the actual reporting goes. I leave this message to Serge Kovaleski who I look forward to meeting or meeting again someday. Don’t change a story you wrote 14 years ago — you lose all credibility.

The good part for Serge is that he has gotten more publicity in the last 48 hrs than he has in the past 35 years — and he obviously loves it which is why he keeps pushing this ridiculous story — but that’s fine with me.

Releases Kovaleski rebuttal

Makes Statement

Trump releases a statement concerning the claims about him mocking Kovaleski.

In my recent speech before 10,000 people in Myrtle Beach, SC, I merely mimicked what I thought would be a flustered reporter trying to get out of a statement he made long ago. If Mr. Kovaleski is handicapped, I would not know because I do not know what he looks like.

Mocks Kovaleski

Makes Statement

After Kovaleski says he did “not recall anyone saying there were thousands, or even hundreds, of people celebrating,” Trump mocks him at his rally in Myrtle Beach;

Written by a nice reporter. Now, the poor guy — you ought to see the guy: ‘Uh, I don’t know what I said. I don’t remember. Oh maybe that’s what I said.’ This is 14 years ago. They didn’t do a retraction.

Trump mocks reporter with disability
