Donald Trump blasted his hated White House press corps as 'loco' on Tuesday, slamming news outlets with the Hispanic epithet twice in 24 hours.
Reporters, he complained, have unfairly covered the impact of his 2017 tax cut package – benefits so deep, he said, that they would have kept him from leaving the private sector if anyone else had enacted them.
The president said Monday that his departure into Spanish during a victory-lap speech on trade was 'because of the fact that we just made a deal with Mexico.'
'They’re loco,' Trump told guests seated in front of the news media. 'But that's okay. I put up with it.'
He leveled the 'loco' insult at reporters again a day later, saying their one-uppish scurry to cover him judgmentally was like hyper-competitive medical insurers trying to compete as Obamacare's lucrative mandates withered on the vine.
