Copied from press conference transcript posted on Hullabaloo:
Reporter: Why did you wait so long to put that last statement out?
Trump: I didn't wait long. I didn't wait long. I didn't wait long.
Reporter: It was at least 48 hours.
Trump: I wanted to make sure — unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct. Not make a quick statement. The statement I made on Saturday, the first statement, was a fine statement. But you don't make statements that direct unless you know the fact. It takes a little while to get the facts.Most of the things that come out of Donnie Covfefe's pie hole make me yell every cuss word I know (which is 99 percent of them). Sometimes, though, he says something so fucking ridiculous that profanity is pointless, and I just have to laugh. And yeah, if there's anything Donnie has established beyond a doubt, it's that he never makes an impulsive, non-factual statement, verbally or on Twitter.
