Trump Abruptly Ends Briefing After Demanding Asian American Reporter “Ask China” Her “Nasty” Question




President Trump abruptly ended Monday’s White House press briefing after Weija Jiang, an Asian-American reporter for CBS News, called him out for demanding she “ask China” after she asked him why he views testing as a global competition while Americans are dying.

“You’ve said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any other country when it comes to testing,” Jiang began her question

“Why does that matter? Why is this a global competition to you if every day, Americans are still losing their and we are still seeing more cases every day?” Jiang asked.



“Well, they’re losing their lives everywhere in the world. And maybe that’s a question you should ask China. Don’t ask me. Ask China that question. Okay? When you ask them that question you might get a very unusual answer,” he snapped back.

“Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically – that I should ask China?” she pressed.

“I’m telling you. I’m not saying it specifically to anybody. I’m saying it to anybody who would ask a nasty question like that,” Trump said.

“That’s not a nasty question,” Jiang fired back as her microphone was cut off by the White House.

Trump was verbally hostile toward a female CNN journalist, and after that, he abruptly ended the one-hour-long press conference.




GOP strategist Steve Schmidt blasted the president’s “racism”, tweeting: “Our distempered, incompetent and imbecilic Commander in Chief demonstrated yet again how overmatched he is for this moment. His claims are dishonest and delusional, his racism as apparent as his nastiness. America is in crisis and it will get worse.”
