Donald Trump claimed in a radio interview that he was inspecting the White House bunker when he hid from protesters there.
Soon after the comment was publicized, Trump was widely mocked online.
President Trump on Fox News Radio just said he did not go to the White House bunker on Friday night as protests unfolded just outside the White House. He said he went during the daytime to “inspect” the shelter “for a very short period of time.”
