He said, “Now, the poor guy — you've got to see this guy, ‘Ah, I don't know what I said! I don't remember!' " while jerking his arms in front of his body.
His actions have been called “despicable.”
Meanwhile, Trump has issued a statement demanding an apology from the reporter and the New York Times for saying he mocked the reporter.
Shocked? Don't be. Donald Trump is known for displaying such outlandish behaviour.
