President Trump shot back at CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins after she attempted to compare his supporters to liberal protesters.
As we previously reported a Trump supporter fired a paintball gun at Antifa counter-protesters in Portland, Oregon. [RELATED: Watch What Happens When Antifa Tries to Stop the Trump Train]
Collins asked the President if he wanted to condemn his supporters for firing a paintball gun and using pepper spray like he condemned left-wing political violence.
President Trump responded by pointing out that a right-wing protester was killed, not by a paintball but by a bullet. [RELATED: Clash Between Pro-Trump Caravan and BLM Leaves One Dead]
President Trump is flying to Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday and has gone on record to tell his supporters to not respond to left-wing violence but allow local law enforcement to handle it.

President Trump has also publicly defended the action of Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse. [READ NEXT: Trump Backs Kenosha Teen Gunman’s Self-Defense Claim]
I wish the police were actually policing and THEY were using real bullets and not paintball guns. That “woman” is an idiot.
As ineffective as British Bobbies. That woman IS an idiot. Cannot connect the dots, typical liberal.
Don’t think the reporter wanted to connect the dots. Seems the Liberal/Liberal Lefts do not value Life, whether in Rioting or Abortion/Infanticide. Just like the fellow who got his head hit with a brick, the person taking the video did not warn the man about a fellow coming up on him as his back was turned, and neither did those who were watching as they laughed and sniggered. What has gotten into people?
Once again, Trump dodged the question with A Diversion.
Go back to your Liberal cave you moron. A man was killed. Not by a paint ball. Stupid response,you must have gotten a Liberal Education if you got any Education at all.
I HOPE YOU GET TO TRY AND DODGE A BULLET…AND SEE HOW IT FEELS….INNOCENT PEOPLE ARE BEING SHOT..WHAT WOULD YOU DO IN THAT KIND OF A POSITION?..CALL THE POLICE?..LOL
CALL THE POLICE WHICH THEY HAVE UNFUNDED
You are the one that is making a diversion of the subject. You have democrats supporting routing, looting, and the destruction of property as peaceful demonstration, yet when a person pushes back and in defence of his life he kills who is trying to beat or kill him you get bent out of shape. You democrats stop the rioting looting and the destruction of property that person would not have been there. So I say that the mayor and governor should be charged with murder and the boy maybe manslaughter.
It would be great if a group of marksmen started taking out EVERY armed looter!
That would end the riots or start the civil war but I doubt the libs want that. They are totally outnumbered. And the kind who hide in plain sight waiting for the warriors to turn their backs then they take their chance. That is why everyone will need a partner and cover their backs. Dim wits are liars, cheats, thieves and when able backstabbers.
Yes! The armed marxist terrorists looters have already proven they will kill anyone who interferes with the commission of their crimes!
Marxists have also proven they will step up and kill unarmed people on the street as they did in Portland the other night! That man was doing nothing to deserve that. The marxists were out hunting prey except they were the “wild animals”!
Mandy,Mandy,Mandy. My thoughts exactly! Where are the sharp shooters!?!?!? We invest much money in the military training for this skill. Come on out and help us.
I saw the video, it was clearly self defense, manslaughter is out of the question, it was self defense!!

You are a TOTAL LIBTURD ! Go Flush yourself down the toilet !
Poor poor, people getting hit with a paint ball!!!!! You sir are the best description of a cretin. Our President didn’t dodge the question, he stated a fact. Which would you prefer, a paintball blob or a bullet? Paintball blobs just make a mess on your clothes, a bullet makes a mess of you, often fatal. Bloody idiot!
I now understand how sick people like you are who cannot intellectualize the difference between a paintball and what it was meant to portray versus a deadly bullet meant only to murder. God forbid that there are many like you in this world.
SEEMS TO ME HE CLEARLY ANSWERED THE IDIOT’S QUESTION BUT YOUR TYPICAL LEFT WING REACTION TO THE TRUTH IS TO TRY TO ASK THE SAME QUESTION WELL THE ANSWER IS STILL THE TRUTH. AND YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH
he should work for cnn! the band of idiots!
Richard, is your hero Jim Acosta?
much ignorance in your post!!!
Once again a flaming lib has spoken and it is so obvious you are delusional it is down right humorous. You are a joke!
There was ZERO diversion, President Trump tried to answer a quite stupid leading question from a fake news representative, and state what was happening. If you don’t understand his question, ask Biden to explain it to you, even he could understand the statement!!!!!!!!!!
Once again a loony liberal is completely mixed up about who is dodging. That would be Quid Pro Joe hiding in his basement, refusing to answer ANY questions.
That gal is a perfect example of a nitwit! Kyle acted in self-defense! I think it’s time for them to use real bullits take them doiwn where they stand! No more tear gzs, rubber bullits, paint balls! They are cold blooded killers and we need to put them down like the dogs they are! ENOUGH OF CODDLING THESE MONSTERS!
Totally agree! Enough is enough and they have been in “way too much” territory for a very long time!!!
Just waiting for the election and the final destruction of the insane asylum DNC so the way is clear for some real law enforcement and legislation. There is going to be a landslide in favor of the GOP. Dnc is self destructing in front of the nations’ eyes.
But beware the rinos in the GOP. They are worse than DNC as they pretend until it suits them to cause real problems. Recent examples, Flakey Flake, No Hero McCain, todays Entitled Rotten to the Core Romney and the infamous Rat Ryan former traitor speaker of the house. There are more but those Four have shown us they are traitors in the party. We can blame the house of today and old mafia Nanc on their lousy performances when we needed them.
Kaitlan Collins Is simply dumb!!!
Conservatives/deplorables are like liberal protesters? What is she on? If we do not agree with the insane asylum liberals and their dim wit politicians and the fake news and their brown shirt terrorist Soros pays for, we are protesters?
I see Maga supporters finally standing up for their homes and getting shot for it in their own neighborhoods by the violent hired left wing terrorist invading the neighborhoods of those who live there in reality not just bused in for the riot shows.
This is sedition, anarchist, and terrorist trained by the mooslime terrorist like Israel faces. Now Soros and the dim wits are importing their newly trained domestic terrorist whose training they paid for, the new wing of brownshirts, BLM or (Bowe l Movement). Vote all dim wits out and republicans in. Let’s end this and round up and either export the terrorist or jail them for say twenty year or more. This has to end or there will be open warfare. It is coming courtesy of the lousy liars, cheats, thieving dim wits.
A perfect reply Mr. President.
STOP IT!!!! There is NO SUCH THING as ‘right wing’!!!!!! We are AMERICANS!!!! It is AMERICANS vs Commies/Nazis (Leftists)!!
There is know such thing as a democrat in this country anymore.
Like Ivanka said the White House didnt change Trump. Trump changed the White House.
The Republican party is know the working class party, that is because the rhinos fell asleep on the job. Somebody had to fix things. So we voted in Trump, and he fixed things.
Hopefully the next four years the Democrats will work with Trump instead of going against him.
We need all to vote in person if you can.
Don’t ya just LOVE our President? I love how he shuts those CNN idiots down.
