In another fiery clash President Trump accused reporter Weijia Jiang of asking him a “nasty question.”
JIANG: You have said many times that the U.S. IS doing far better than any other country when it comes to testing.
JIANG: Why does that matter? Why is it global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we are still seeing more cases every day?
TRUMP: 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 may get a very unusual answer. Yes, behind you please.
JIANG: Sir, why are you saying that to me specifically —
TRUMP: I’m telling you.
JIANG: — that I should ask China?
TRUMP: I’m not saying it specifically to anybody. I’m saying it to anyone who would ask a nasty question like that.
JIANG: It’s not a nasty question.
TRUMP: Please go ahead.
JIANG: Why does it matter that [INAUDIBLE]
TRUMP: Okay. Anybody else? Please go ahead in the back. Please.
