Speaking to CNN after his AIPAC address Monday night, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump reacted to the protests of various Jewish groups against his speech, saying "I am the least racist man you will ever meet."

When asked, Trump reaffirmed his denouncement of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacists, and said he would be "the best for Israel."

Among other claims in the interview, Trump responded to Hillary Clinton's assertion from earlier on Monday that the president requires a "steady hand" by saying that he has "the steadiest hands. The steadiest."
