The New York Times have described Trump’s actions as “outrageous”.

US Presidential candidate Donald Trump has come under fire for appearing to mock a New York Times reporter with a disability at a campaign rally in South Carolina on Tuesday.

During the rally, Trump was defending comments he made in recent weeks about members of Muslim communities in New Jersey celebrating the collapse of the Twin Towers in 2001.

The reporter Trump is referring to in the video below is Serge Kovaleski, now of the New York Times, who has a chronic condition known as arthrogryposis, which affects the movement of his arms.
