Original Message But of those shocked by Trump’s remark, Rashidi, a reporter for Kurdistan 24, was not among them.

“Hello, this is Mr. Kurd,” he said as he answered the phone late Wednesday night, several hours after he went viral.

For Rashidi, Trump’s acknowledgment of his identity as a Kurdish person as the world looked on was far from insulting. Instead, it was a moment of pride, he said.

“I loved it, because all the time our identity is ignored by the Turkish government, by the Iranian government,” he told The Washington Post. “We are proud of our struggle for democracy, for justice, for freedom. He made me so happy when he called me Mr. Kurd. It was a moment of respect for us, for me.”
