US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — US President Donald Trump interrupted his briefing at the White House on the situation with the coronavirus due to a skirmish with journalists. About it, on Monday, May 11, reports CNN.
During his speech, the American leader said that the United States conducted more tests than other countries.
After that, an employee of the CBS television channel asked Trump the question of why he constantly focuses on the US rivalry with other countries in the number of tests for coronavirus, instead of paying attention to the situation inside the country where mortality is growing. When asked why this was happening, Trump harshly advised China to ask about it.
“People are dying all over the world. Perhaps this is a question you should ask China. Do not ask me, ask China. If you ask them, you can get a very unusual answer, ”the American leader answered in a rather sharp tone.
In addition, he called the question vile, which the journalist had already outraged.
After exchanging a few more remarks, Trump said goodbye to those present and left the briefing.
Earlier it was reported that in the United States more than 80 thousand people died from coronavirus. This is evidenced by the data from the Worldometer website, which specializes in world statistics on COVID-19.
