Former US President Donald Trump recently made headlines again for his aggressive behavior towards a reporter who asked him about the criminal probe by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. The incident happened after a campaign rally in Waco, Texas on March 25, 2023. Trump was engaging in an informal press gaggle with a group of reporters when NBC News reporter Vaughn Hillyard commented that he seemed "frustrated" by the ongoing investigation. This comment triggered an angry response from Trump, who shut down any further questioning on the topic.

When Hillyard attempted to ask another question about the probe almost thirty minutes later, Trump reportedly became enraged and threw the reporter's phones from the table. Audio recordings of the incident captured Trump instructing his aides to remove Hillyard from the plane. It is unclear whether the reporter was actually removed from the plane.

Trump has had a history of tension with the media, frequently labeling them as "fake news" and refusing to answer their questions during his presidency. He has been the leading Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential election and has called the investigation into hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels as "political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history."

While some of his supporters view Trump's behavior towards the media as a sign of strength and standing up for himself and his supporters, others have criticized him for his aggressive behavior. However, his campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung denied any negative incidents involving reporters ever occurred on Trump's plane.

In conclusion, Donald Trump's aggressive behavior towards a reporter who questioned him about a criminal probe is not the first incident of its kind. Despite criticism, some of his supporters see it as a sign of strength and defiance against the biased media. However, this behavior has also been condemned by others as inappropriate and unprofessional.
