When respected PBS NewsHour reporter Yamiche Alcindor dared to ask Donald Trump a question today that he didn’t like, Trump went off on her. She held her ground even as he yelled “you people” at her and told not to be “threatening.” Now Alcindor is firing back:
President Trump today at the White House said to me: “Be nice. Don't be threatening.”
I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job.
My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.
