Reporter to Trump: Do you regret all the lying you've done to the American people?
For five years I've been wanting to ask him that.— S.V. Dáte (@svdate) August 13, 2020
Dáte had waited five long years to ask Donald Trump this one question: “Mr President, after three and a half years [of Trump’s presidency], do you regret at all, all the lying you’ve done to the American people?” Dáte, was quoted by the Guardian:
I don't know why he called on me, because I've tried to ask him before [in March] and he's cut me off mid-question. Maybe he didn't recognise me this time. You know, he has this group of folks that he normally asks questions of. […] I had always thought that if he ever did call on me, this is the one thing that is really central to his presidency.
