Chris Wallace: Trump Got ‘Very Hostile Questioning from the German Media’
Fox’s Chris Wallace spoke with Shep Smith this afternoon, after President Trump‘s joint presser with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and took note of what he deemed “very hostile questioning” of the president from German reporters.
Trump was challenged by one German reporter about his attacks on the fake news when he himself throws out unproven statements, and by another over his claims of Obama wiretapping.
Smith asked Wallace with some surprise, “You thought the reporter was hostile?”
Wallace said, “I thought they were pretty tough… These weren’t issues involving the U.S. and Germany, these were issues of domestic American politics. I’m not saying that it was wrong, but it was interesting that the German reporters wanted to get in it with Donald Trump, and he was perfectly happy to get in it with them.”
Smith countered that it was “more that important questions like those weren’t asked by U.S. reporters and said he was “thankful” that these reporters asked those questions.
