"Thank you very much," Trump told a reporter with NBC4 in Ohio before he walked away.

Donald Trump walked out of an interview Thursday with a Columbus, Ohio, television station after he was asked about being labeled a racist and sexist during the course of the campaign.

Trump had been speaking with the local NBC affiliate about his debate comments and his economic plans when the interviewer noted he'd been called both of those things.

"Nineteen days out from the election, you’ve been labeled a racist, you’ve been called a sexist, how …" NBC4's Colleen Marshall asked the Republican nominee during a TV interview on Thursday.

"Thank you very much," Trump responded, and then proceeded to walk away.

The reporter followed up, asking how Trump would respond to those accusations.

He turned back and declared, "I am the least racist person you've ever met," before walking away.

The interview was recorded before Trump's rally at the local fairgrounds in Delaware, Ohio.
