‘You People!’: Trump Trashes Black Reporter’s Career In Angry Rant, Tells Her: ‘Don’t Be Threatening’




President Donald Trump angrily lashed out at “PBS NewsHour” reporter Yamiche Alcindor during a Sunday press briefing on the coronavirus outbreak after she questioned him about recent comments he made during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity about whether some requests from governors related to the outbreak were overblown or unnecessary.

Trump denied that he had made the widely-reported comments before accusing Alcindor of acting “threatening” during the briefing.

“Why don’t you act in a little more positive? … It’s always get ya, get ya, get ya,” Trump said to Alcindor. “You know what? That’s why nobody trusts the media anymore.”



“That’s why you used to work for the [New York] Times and now you work for somebody else,” he continued, speaking to Alcindor. “Look, let me tell you something. Be nice. Don’t be threatening.”

Alcindor later asked Trump another question later in the press conference after CNN’s Jeremy Diamond apparently passed the microphone to her. She thanked Diamond for the kind act on Twitter.




Alcindor questioned whether any studies or data could support Trump’s assertion that the economic impacts of the coronavirus outbreak could be greater than the outbreak itself, a claim Trump has repeated without providing evidence.
