Trump criticized the White House reporter for reporting to the demonstrator before his speech.

& # 39; No no, the only problem, John, & # 39; you hear Trump say. & # 39; You gave the demonstrator one hundred percent of the time. & # 39;

And I don't care about coverage, the last thing I need is coverage. But listen, John. 100 percent, not a word of the speech and you know, we were there about the speech.

& # 39; The demonstrator didn't look so good, I'm going to be very nice. But you gave him 100 percent. & # 39;

& # 39; But that's okay, you often do, that's okay, & # 39; Trump added.

Roberts appeared in Fox & # 39; s Shepard Smith Reporting to explain why he had made the decision to focus his report on the demonstrator, and said he focused on the ongoing feud between Trump and Congressman Elijah Cummings.

& # 39; No no, the only problem, John, & # 39; you hear Trump say. & # 39; You gave the demonstrator one hundred percent of the time. & # 39;

He explained: & # 39; In my 1:00 report, we did not show anything from the President's speech, because in that report we focused on the ongoing feud between President and Congressman Elijah Cummings of Maryland and the consequences, but it should have been pointed out that the Fox News Channel gave that speech in its entirety at 11:00 AM. & # 39;

President Donald Trump gave a patriotic speech on Tuesday with historic overtones, in which he established the state meeting of Virginia & # 39; the greatest achievement in the history of the world & # 39; called.

He addressed a special state legislature session convened in Jamestown to mark the 400th anniversary of the founding of the assembly that is his immediate ancestor.

But the event came when increasing racial tensions swirled around the White House, with Trump angering some African-Americans through the predominantly black city of Baltimore, Maryland, a & # 39; disgusting rats and rodent-damaged mess & # 39; to name.

The protest arose directly from earlier racially charged rhetoric by the president.

& # 39; President, you cannot send us back! Virginia is our home! & # 39; Ibraheem Samirah shouted, referring to Trump & # 39; s controversial statement that a quartet of young federal lawmakers, all women of color, should be returned & # 39; where they came from & # 39 ;.

Samirah, the lonely demonstrator, stood up and opened a three-part board while he spoke with the message: & # 39; Go back to your spoiled house, & # 39; deport hate & # 39; and & # 39; reunite my family & # 39 ;.

Back in the White House on Tuesday, Trump said he appreciated that most Democrats & # 39; so respectful & # 39; despite the decision of a legislator to cheat on him

The president stopped, but some in the audience sang & # 39; Trump! Trump! Trump! & # 39; while the police escorted Samirah.

Samirah, a Palestinian-American, is a democratic member of the Virginia assembly. His Twitter account identifies him as the & # 39; youngest Virginia State Delegate & youngest US Muslim legislator in the world & # 39 ;.

The president said back in the White House a few hours later that most of the Democrats in Jamestown were sticking to the spirit of the event.

& # 39; I really appreciate that the Democrats were so respectful because – it's what it is. It is a very important moment, 400 years, & he told reporters at the South Lawn.

& # 39; We had great receptivity & # 39 ;, he said, reprimanding a Fox News Channel reporter for his network's decision to & # 39; de … cover a demonstrator & # 39 ;.

& # 39; We had one person, and otherwise it was really fantastic, & # 39; said Trump.
