Trump ends press briefing after clashing with reporters

On Monday, Trump held a press conference specifically dedicated to coronavirus testing, telling gathered reporters the US has "prevailed" over its testing shortages and saying anyone could get a test if they want one.

Jiang asked Trump, who wasn't wearing a mask, "Why is this a global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we are still seeing more cases every day?"

Jiang, an Asian-American reporter, clearly found offense in the question - despite it being one the president has thrown out multiple times in the past - and asked why she was told that specifically.

In Washington, D.C., President Trump clashed with Chinese American CBS reporter Weijia Jiang when she confronted him over the issue of testing.

"Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically?" I tell anyone who asks an unpleasant question like that, "Trump replied".

"That's not a nasty question", Jiang added. "And maybe that's a question you should ask China". "Why does it matter?"

The president fielded questions on Monday and got into a heated exchange with a CBS reporter.

He moved on to another reporter, Kaitlan Collins of CNN, who instead paused to allow Jiang to follow up with a second question.

"He's a disgusting racist", Behar said on Tuesday's episode of "The View". As Collins repeatedly objected, the president turned on his heel and left the podium.

Fauci: 'Serious consequences' if USA states reopen fast
US President Donald Trump has been encouraging states to end a weeks-long shuttering of major components of their economies . The US has reported more than 80,000 deaths and 1.3 million infections.

The president has in the past chafed at questions from reporters during coronavirus briefings.

Yamiche Alcindor, of PBS, tweeted that, "He called on me but I motioned for Kaitlin to ask her Q so Trump walked off". The president has frequently blamed China for the outbreak, suggesting the country could have stopped the spread of the coronavirus had it acted sooner.

"I just wanted to let my colleague finish", Ms Collins explained. "When you ask them that question you'll get a very unusual answer", with his voice becoming more incensed as he spoke. Unfortunately, there appears to be a masochistic back-and-forth that never ceases, as both parties are frequently positioned to square off during press conferences and briefings.

"Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much", he said before leaving the Rose Garden.

The president said it is "shocking" how many people come in and out of the White House every day.

CNN's chief media correspondent Brian Stelter noted her comments, posting a screenshot of her tweet that didn't include her direct shot at Thayer - "You know nothing". Jiang pressed Trump on why he speaks of global competition when the USA has 80,000 deaths from the coronavirus. It wouldn't be the first time Jiang was confronted by racist remarks at the White House.

According to a leaked White House report, coronavirus rates are spiking in the heartland communities of America.

A CNN spokesperson declined to comment.

This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the "Kung-Flu" to my face.
