Monday’s White House press briefing on coronavirus abruptly ended when a CBS reporter Weijia Jiang called him out on his spin over coronavirus testing — and the president began arguing.
Jiang asked Trump why he keeps repeatedly boasting about how the United States is best in the world at testing when 80,000 Americans are dead. Trump snapped back, “… that’s a nasty question.”
Jiang, who is Chinese-American, asked why Trump said “China” to her specifically. Trump then pointed to CNN’s Kaitlan Collins for a question, then when Collins tried to redirect to what he had just said to Jiang, he abruptly ended the press conference and stormed out.
