Do not ask me, ask China: after hot interchange with journalists, Trump suddenly finishes White House conference.
On Monday after a combative exchange with reporters Weijia Jiang of CBS News and Kaitlan Collins, President Donald Trump abruptly finished the news conference in the White House.
Jiang questioned Trump why the coronavirus experiments carried out in the US he put too much focus on.
Jiang asked, "Why is that important? "Why is this a worldwide challenge to you because Americans always risk their lives every day and every day we see more cases?"
"People risk their life anywhere in the world," Trump said. "So it's actually a problem that you need to ask China. Don't ask me. Tell China that."
He posed a question and no instant answer.
"Sir, exactly, why do you tell this to me?" questioned Jiang. Jiang was raised in Xiamen, China and immigrated with her family to the United States at the age of 2. She has been employed at the CBS News since 2015.
"Trump answered everyone who poses a nasty question." He asked Him.
Jiang said, "It's not a disgusting question. "Why is this important?"
Trump posed another question and and replied, "No it's all right," then as she reached the camera she brushed CNN's Collins back.
Collins replied, "You spoke to me.
"I pointed at you and you didn't reply," said Collins. Collins said she gave Jiang time to conclude her interrogatory.
Collins replied, "May I pose a question?
With this, Trump called the press conference, kept Rose Garden in the White House and quit.
Following the recent reports, two White House employees – the Vice President 's assistant Mike Penz and the President's valet – tested the coronavirus positively, the Jiang and Collins wore masks as did most reporters.
