Donald Trump, criticizing the media, points out someone at rally: 'Look at my African-American'

At a campaign rally in Redding, California, on Friday, Donald Trump wanted to make his case that the "sleazy" news media is out to get him. "We had a case where we had an African-American man who is a fan of mine," he said. "Great fan. Great guy — in fact, I want to find out what's going on with him." Trump looked around the crowd, then pointed: "Look at my African-American over here. Look at him. Are you the greatest?"
