Donald Trump, Jr.’s handlers didn’t like WTAE reporter Bob Mayo‘s question about how senior Trump’s charity foundation is spending its money.
Mayo asked Trump’s son about a Washington Post story saying the Donald J. Trump Foundation spent $20,000 for a six-foot-tall portrait of the Republican presidential candidate in 2007. That’s when an aide stepped in and stopped the interview.
“You’re a director of the Trump Foundation charity, did you sign off on charity money for a portrait?” asked Pittsburgh ABC affiliate reporter Bob Mayo.
“No, I don’t know anything about that,” said Trump, Jr.
“So how come you didn’t know—,” asked Mayo.
“All right, that’s it,” said a voice off camera. “We have to move on to the next one.”[Buzzfeed]
