Trump abruptly ends press conference after contentious exchange with reporters

Last edited Tue May 12, 2020, 05:13 AM - Edit history (1)



New York (CNN Business)President Donald Trump abruptly ended his Monday press conference after a contentious exchange in which he asked an Asian-American journalist to "ask China" about her question and then refused to take a query from another White House reporter.

Weijia Jiang, a White House correspondent for CBS News, asked the President why he sees coronavirus testing as a global competition when more than 80,000 Americans have died.

"Maybe that's a question you should ask China," Trump told Jiang, who was born in China and immigrated to the United States when she was two years old. "Don't ask me. Ask China that question, OK?"

Trump attempted to move on by calling on Kaitlan Collins, a White House correspondent for CNN, but Jiang interjected with a follow-up question.
"Sir, why are you saying that to me specifically?" asked Jiang, who was visibly taken aback by Trump's demand.

"I'm telling you," Trump replied. "I'm not saying it specifically to anybody. I'm saying it to anybody that asks a nasty question."

"That's not a nasty question," Jiang said. "Why does it matter?"

3. another historic moment of disgrace for that douche bag "president"

there is a longer video somewhere showing another female reporter calling him out on testing, then jiang, then a third woman at the mic, then jiang does the follow up, and he tries to call on someone but the female reporter at the mic doesn't stand down.

he couldn't take it.

5. It was a question about DT that no one else could answer

The question was re testing "Why is this a global competition to you" so China cannot answer anyway.

(But maybe Putin can!!!)

12. He usually lashes out and acts out

When he learns something will expose him , and he has court cases with his taxes and with release of the full un-redacted Mueller report being decided on soon. This outburst was desperation , and it brought out how racist he is. He's losing voters now too.
