President Donald Trump dominated his CNN town hall with the network’s star anchor Kaitlan Collins last night.
The hosting of the 2024 event has been causing Democrats across the country to slam the network for putting Trump on.
However, the crowd was on Trump’s side as hyperpartisan Collins pushed false claims and refused to let the 45th president speak.
Trump steamrolled Collins throughout the town hall.
At one point, Trump called the CNN host a “nasty person.”
COLLINS: “I would like for you to answer the question. That’s what I asked it.”

DONALD TRUMP: All of a sudden, they raided my house. They didn’t raid the house of Joe Biden. They didn’t raid Obama.
KAITLAN COLLINS: Joe Biden didn’t ignore a subpoena to get those documents back like you did. But that’s the question that investigators have, I think, is why you held on to those documents when you knew the federal government was seeking them and then had given you a subpoena to return them.
DONALD TRUMP: Are you ready? Are you ready? Can I talk?
KAITLAN COLLINS: Yeah. What’s the answer?
DONALD TRUMP: Can, do you mind?
KAITLAN COLLINS: I would like for you to answer the question
DONALD TRUMP: It’s very simple to answer.
KAITLAN COLLINS: That’s why I asked it.
DONALD TRUMP: It’s very simple to… You’re a nasty person! I’ll tell you.
(AUDIENCE LAUGHTER AND WILD APPLAUSE)
KAITLAN COLLINS: Can you answer why? Why you held on to the documents?
TRUMP: You’re so wrong you don’t know the subject
COLLINS: I do know the subject
I’m so proud of President Trump tonight, GREAT JOB!
He is truly showing everyone why he is the president America needs.
He is doing a town hall with CNN, who has attacked him more than anyone.
Biden won’t even talk, can’t even talk to the press.
But President Trump loves this…

Elsewhere during his town hall, Trump pledged to pardon most of the Jan. 6 political prisoners once elected.
As Slay News reported earlier, Trump argued that the prisoners have been “persecuted.”
Trump was asked if he will pardon those who were convicted over Jan. 6.
The crowd cheered as Trump responded by pledging to pardon “a large portion of them.”
The 45th president drew comparisons with the violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots of 2020.
He noted that “nothing” was done in response to the leftist rioters.
There are “two standards of justice in this country,” Trump warned.
