Fiery WATCH: Trump Defiant After Reporter Says 'Anchor Baby' Is an Offensive Term
At a town hall event in New Hampshire yesterday, a reporter challenged Donald Trump on his repeated use of the term "anchor baby."
The reporter asked Trump (video above) if he is aware that the term is "offensive" and "hurtful."
"You mean it's not politically correct and yet everybody uses it? Ya know what? Give me a different term," he shot back.
The reporter suggested he modify his language and instead say "American-born children of undocumented immigrants."
"You want me to say that? No, I'll use the word anchor baby," Trump said, as the reporter tried to interject again.
"Excuse me. I'll use the word anchor baby," he concluded before moving on to another question.
Trump has said in recent days that children born in the United States to illegal immigrant mothers should not be granted automatic citizenship.
Meantime, Hillary Clinton targeted Jeb Bush for also using the term "anchor babies" in a tweet Wednesday.

Presidential candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) reacted on "America's Newsroom," bringing up the Planned Parenthood videos in response.
"What's really offensive is the left refuses to say 'babies.' Instead they use fetal tissue, specimens. They're a bunch of science-deniers," said Jindal.
Jindal said people are too easily offended and that he's "happy to use the term" anchor baby.
