President Trump answered reporters who asked him to "tone down" his rhetoric on his way to a campaign rally Friday evening in North Carolina:
QUESTION: Would you yourself pledge to tone down the President for the next few days during the campaign?
TRUMP: Well, I think I've been toned down, if you want to know the truth. I could really tone it up. Because, as you know, the media has been extremely unfair to me and to the Republican Party.
QUESTION: How? How have we been unfair?
TRUMP: I think the media has been very, very unfair in terms of the Republican Party and the way it's been covered. And they understand that. They write articles about that. Many of them admit that. But the media has been unbelievably unfair to Republicans, conservatives, and certainly to me.
But with all of that being said, we're winning. So, I like that.
Thank you very much. Thank you.
