Donald Trump had another day wrestling with reporters after refusing to answer questions that he didn’t find pleasing.
On Sunday, CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang once again pressured Trump to answer why his administration had such a slow response to the coronavirus outbreak.
Trump tried to claim that he acted quick.
“If you look at what I did banning china from coming in,” Trump began.
“Not American nationals,” Jiang cut in, to mention the 40,000 people who were allowed back into the U.S. from China.
That’s when Trump told her to “relax.”
“Nice and easy. Nice and easy. Relax. We cut it off. Everybody was amazed that I did it. We had 21 people in a room. Everybody was against it but me. Dr. Fauci said had I not done that, perhaps tens of thousands and maybe much more than that people would have died. I was very early, very, very early. And we just saw, you saw Bret Baier making a statement. They had a debate well into February and not even mention — it wasn’t mentioned, the Democrats, we were very early. I’m the president, and you know what I just did?”
He then asked her how many people had died by the time Trump had intervened. In fact, no one knows how many people with COVID-19 died or were even infected because there was no testing.
“So do you acknowledge –” she began again before he snapped at her again.
“Keep your voice down!” Trump shouted.
