In a news conference in Miami Wednesday morning, Donald Trump told NBC News correspondent Katy Tur to “be quiet” as she tried to ask the GOP presidential candidate about his suggestion that Russia find and release Hillary Clinton‘s emails.

Trump suggested Tur was hoping to help Clinton, saying “I know you want to save her.”

On MSNBC later, Tur was asked about the exchange. “Don’t worry about me. I’m not very good about being quiet, and I won’t continue to be quiet in any way, shape or form.”

Trump has targeted Tur before. In June, the candidate criticized Tur’s reporting on his campaign, and insisted his campaign deliberately denies access to Tur. “We don’t even let her in. We don’t talk to her, we don’t let people talk to her because she’s not a very good reporter.”
