Fox News personality Juan Williams responded to President Trump ripping him on Twitter over the weekend.
“Juan Williams at @FoxNews is so pathetic, and yet when he met me in the Fox Building lobby, he couldn’t have been nicer as he asked me to take a picture of him and me for his family. Yet he is always nasty and wrong!” – Trump tweeted after Juan Williams criticized the effect of Trump’s unpredictability on the economy.
Juan Williams appeared today on Guy Benson’s show, who also criticized Trump about his tweet regarding Williams.
Williams defended his criticism of Trump and also argued that his comments on Sunday weren’t a personal attack on Trump.
With respect to the supposed picture Trump claimed he asked for, Williams detailed his encounter with then-candidate Donald Trump at the Fox News building.
According to Williams, the maintenance guy asked Williams if he could get a picture with the President. Williams said he asked Trump, Trump agreed, and they took the picture.
“And then the maintenance man says ‘do you want a picture?’ I’m, like, ‘okay.’ And here comes Ed Henry. That’s what happened. There’s nothing about a request for my family, and I didn’t ask for a picture for myself. This all started because the maintenance man asked… I didn’t ask for the picture!”
