'Don't inquire from me , ask China': Trump's reply to 'nasty question' on US COVID-19 tests


US President Donald Trump abruptly ended his press conference on Monday, held within the White House garden , following combative exchanges with reporters.

It came because the number of deaths from COVID-19 rose above 80,000 consistent with researchers, and amid much scrutiny over the United States' testing programme.

Weijia Jiang of CBS News asked Trump why he was putting such a lot emphasis on the quantity of coronavirus tests that are conducted within the us .

'Don't inquire from me , ask China'
“Why does that matter?” Jiang asked. “Why is that this a worldwide competition to you if everyday Americans are still losing their lives and we're still seeing more cases every day?”

Trump replied that “they're losing their lives everywhere within the world. and perhaps that's an issue you ought to ask China. Don't inquire from me . Ask China that question.”

He involved another question, and there was no immediate response.

“Sir, why are you saying that to me, specifically?” Jiang asked. Jiang, who has worked for CBS News since 2015, was born in Xiamen, China, and emigrated to the us together with her family at the age of two .

Trump said he would say that to “anyone who asks a nasty question.”

“It's not a nasty question,” Jiang said. “Why does that matter?”

Trump again asked for an additional question, then said, “Nah, that's OK” and waved off CNN's Collins when she approached the microphone.

“You pointed to me,” Collins said.

The president said, “I pointed to you and you didn't respond.” Collins said she was giving Jiang the time to end her questioning.

“Can I ask a question?” Collins said.

With that, Trump called an end to the press conference , held within the White House garden , and walked away.

Trump says US has 'prevailed' on testing
Donald Trump insisted his administration had “met the moment” and “prevailed” on coronavirus testing.

After two aides tested positive for COVID-19 late last week, anyone entering the West Wing was ordered to wear a mask. The president himself didn't when he appeared at the briefing.

Monday's briefing was meant to spotlight the supply of testing because the White House seeks to convince Americans the country is safely reopening.

Trump repeated his claim that everybody who wants a test can get one. The pledge, first issued quite two months ago, comes as governors across the country still turn the federal to try to to more to spice up supply to satisfy the wants .

“They should all be ready to get a test immediately ," Trump said, albeit experts say there's no capacity for testing thereon scale. Officials later clarified that “everybody who needs a test can get a test."

On a call with state governors, Vice-President Mike Pence and Dr Deborah Birx, the White House coordinator for the virus response, recommended that each home occupant and staffer be tested for COVID-19 within the next fortnight , with vigilant monitoring going forward, especially of staff.

The White House was moving to daily testing of some staff members to detect the disease, AP reported.
