Pres. Donald Trump angrily exits press conference after being challenged by female reporters

President Donald Trump abruptly exits today's coronavirus task force briefing when he's challenged by a female reporter on testing.
President Donald Trump stormed out of a coronavirus press conference at the White House on Monday after becoming angry with two reporters, one who asked a question about testing, and another who didn’t get to ask a question at all.
The event in the Rose Garden was meant to give the president a chance to boast about the recent increases in testing, and Trump spoke and answered questions for nearly an hour.
The briefing got off to a bumpy start when the president misstated the dollar amount that would be allocated to states to help with testing. “We are sending $1 billion to American states, territories and tribes,” Trump announced, in what officials had told reporters would be a high-point of the event.
But those same officials said the amount would be $11 billion, not $1 billion. Moreover, the $11 billion was appropriated in the CARES Act passed by Congress and signed into law in April, calling into question why it was being held up almost three weeks later as a major success point.
A White House spokesman later confirmed to CNBC that the amount is in fact, $11 billion.
For the remainder of his remarks, the president ran through the numbers of personal protective equipment, ventilators and other essential gear that the U.S. has produced and distributed to fight the virus.
But it was in the question and answer session that tempers erupted.
At around 5:15 p.m., CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang asked Trump, “You have said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any other country when it comes to testing,” to which Trump said, “Yes.”
Jiang, who is Chinese American, continued, “Why does that matter? Why is it global competition to you, if every day Americans are still losing their lives, and we are still seeing more cases every day?”
“They’re losing their lives everywhere in the world,” Trump replied, “And maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me. Ask China that question, okay? If you ask them that question, you may get a very unusual answer.”
As Trump proceeded to call on another reporter, Jiang followed up. “Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically?”
“I’m not saying it specifically to anybody,” Trump responded, growing visibly irate. “I’m saying that to anyone who would ask a nasty question like that.”
“That’s not a nasty question,” Jiang insisted, but Trump had already moved on.
“Anyone else?” Trump said to the assembled reporters, before calling on CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, who was standing in line behind Jiang. “OK, yes, please go ahead, in the back,” he said.
Collins approached the microphone, “I have two questions,” she said.
“No, it’s ok,” Trump said, dismissing Collins, “we’ll go up here.”
“But you pointed to me, Mr. President, and I have two questions.”
“Next, next please,” Trump said, as he looked past Collins.
“But you called on me,” Collins protested.
“I did. And you didn’t respond, and now I’m calling on the other young lady in the back,” Trump said.
“But I just wanted to let my colleague finish,” Collins said, but Trump cut her off.
“Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much. appreciate it, thank you very much,” Trump said, and he turned and walked away.
The exchange was the latest in a series of bitter back-and-forths Trump has had with reporters since he started giving near daily press briefings on the coronavirus pandemic in mid-March.
On Tuesday morning, Trump claimed, without evidence, that “Chinese Americans are the most angry of all” about how the United States had been treated by China
In reality, however, making China into a scapegoat for the coronavirus outbreak has led to a spike in discrimination against Asian-Americans, ranging from harassment to hate crimes. In April, the Justice Department took note, and began working with Asian American groups to track and prosecute hate crimes against Asian Americans.

    • @dolimi jotoo The question was: why does the fact that the USA got more tests in the world matter? Answer: Ask china. That make any sense. A lot of answer could be give... like: More tests mean more prevention around people tested positive, so we can slow the disease as possible etc, etc... But no, he just randomly blame china. This is like I ask you why you did an action and would answer: 2+2 = 4 He also lost his self control and decided to leave early.

I think a better question is what can he do to preventing more people from dying besides testing. It is not a competition for testing. That's what they should do at the first place.

  • Smart Leader Root Cause is China. The reporter in the video sees the question being raised from the negative point of view. Internationally, the disease is said to be dying. There, he pointed to his American grave. The reporter in the video should know that this is not a problem that he can manage alone. This is the sharing of views on video clips. If you disagree with each other, please be patient.

It sounds like a hateful question towards the president, and it’s for sure a waste of time to answer questions like this. This lady sounds like she doesn’t want people to get tested. He did the right thing and stopped answering questions.
