Andrew Feinberg, a White House reporter for Breakfast Media, asked the Trump adviser what country the president was referring to when he said that the female lawmakers should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
“If the president was not telling these four congresswomen to return to their supposed countries of origin, to which countries was he referring?” Feinberg asked during a press gaggle in the White House driveway.
“My own ethnicity is not relevant to the question I’m asking you,” Feinberg reiterated, but Conway disagreed.
“No, no. It is,” the Trump spokesperson said. “Because you’re asking about — he said ‘originally.’ He said ‘originally from.’ And you know everything he has said since and to have a full conversation.”
