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?"

The story, as Trump tells it, involves a black supporter at a rally who punched some white protesters dressed in Ku Klux Klan costumes, and you can watch Trump tell it below:

"We have tremendous African-American support," Trump said.
