Donald Trump made it very clear how he felt about being asked Thursday what he makes of being labeled a "racist" and a "sexist."

"Thank you very much," the Republican presidential nominee told a reporter with an NBC News affiliate in Columbus, Ohio, before walking away.

Trump had been discussing his debate performance and the policy proposals he hopes to enact, should he win the presidency next month, with the journalist. But the conversation was immediately halted when she raised issues of race and sex — two topics that have dogged the GOP candidate's campaign.

"19 days out from the election, you’ve been labeled a racist, you’ve been called a sexist, how—," Colleen Marshall asked Trump during an informal interview after the debate.

But as Marshall tried to ask how Trump how he would respond to accusations against him, he started walking away as he interjected, "I am the least racist person you've ever met."
