He’s not messing around.
According to The Daily Wire, President Donald Trump slammed eft-wing CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang after she falsely claimed that a member of the Trump administration called the coronavirus the “kung flu” to her face.
“Many Americans are saying the exact same thing about you, that you should have warned them that the virus was spreading like wildfire through the month of February instead of holding rallies with thousands of people,” Jiang said. “Why did you wait so long to warn them? And why did you not have social distancing until March 16?”
“You didn’t warn people that it was spreading so quickly!” Jiang later claimed.
“Okay, and you know how many people when I issued the ban?” Trump pressed. “How many cases of virus were in the United States when I issued the ban? Do you know the number? How many cases were here when I issued the ban?”
Jiang tried to deflect, but Trump continued, “No, no, no. You have to do your research.”
“On the 23rd of March, you said you knew this was going to be a pandemic,” Jiang said.
“How many cases were in the United States when I did my ban?” Trump continued. “How many people had died in the United States? … I did a ban where I’m closing up the entire country. How many people died? How many people died in the United States, and yet I closed up the country. And I believe there were no deaths, zero deaths at the time I closed up the country. Nobody was there. And you should say thank you very much for good judgement.” You can read the full article here.
