WATCH: Trump silences reporter asking him if he’s sending ‘mixed messages’ with his coronavirus comments

Published

on

During a surprise appearance at a press conference that was supposed to be helmed by Vice President Mike Pence, Donald Trump cut off MSNBC’s Kelly O’Donnell as she tried to press him over sending ” mixed messages” to the public every time he publically addresses the nation.

After O’Donnell asked him about his Friday Rose Garden comments and shaking the hands of the CEOs in attendance — directly contradicting the CDC’s advice to avoid contact that could spread the virus — the president explained that he did it out of habit, while also defending manhandling the microphone for other speakers.

After the White House correspondent asked, “Why are you shaking hands?” Trump responded, “It’s almost a habit. Frankly, I was a non-handshaker for the most part. I know it, too political people walk up. They want to shake my hand and I say, well –,” before the reporter tried to get a word in.

“Wait a minute, just take it nice and easy, just relax,” Trump cut her off. “People come up to me and somebody put their hand out and it’s a natural reflex and we’re all getting out of it — all of us have that problem.”

US President Donald Trump will not attend next week's UN General Assembly gathering in person, his chief of staff told journalists aboard Air Force One Thursday, according to a pool report.

The decision marks an about-face for Trump, who last month said he wanted to deliver his speech in the General Assembly hall in New York, even if other world leaders are staying away due to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ended the debate once and for all, telling reporters en route to Wisconsin, where Trump was to hold a campaign rally, that the president would not physically attend the General Assembly's 75th session, which will take place mainly by videoconference due to the health crisis.
