"I know you want to save her," the GOP presidential told the reporter about questions on Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump was quick to shut down NBC News' Katy Tur during a media conference Wednesday. 

The GOP presidential nominee made his comment when Tur pressed him about other comments he made during the same conference when he encouraged Russian hackers to find and expose Hillary Clinton's deleted emails from her time as Secretary of State. 

"Be quiet. I know you want to save her," Trump told Tur. 

The billionaire businessman also said he didn't think John Hinckley Jr., the man who attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan, should have been released from a mental institution, which was ordered by a judge on Wednesday. Trump called Hinckley "David" at first, but corrected himself. 

The campaign declined additional comment on Hinckley. 

On the topic of his family, Trump dismissed any notions of his son, Donald Trump Jr., running to be the mayor of New York. On Tuesday, former congressman and previous mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner said he would step back into politics to run against Trump's son, claiming he would "beat him like a rented mule."

Trump responded to those comments on Wednesday. "He's a sleezeball and a pervert," Trump said of Weiner.
