[International: Al Furat News] US President Donald Trump ended his press conference about the Corona virus suddenly on Monday after a controversy erupted between him and an American-Asian correspondent.
CBS correspondent Wijia Jiang asked Trump why he has consistently insisted that the United States is doing better than any other country when it comes to conducting coronavirus testing.
And she continued her question: "What is the importance of this matter? And why is it for you global competition when there are Americans who lose their lives every day, and we still see more casualties daily?"
Trump replied, "People are losing their lives everywhere in the world." Then he continued, "Maybe you should direct this question to China. Don't ask me me, but ask China this question, and then you will get an answer."
But while Trump was giving permission to another reporter to ask, Wegian, who identified herself as West Virginia and was born in China, went to another inquiry to Trump: "Sir, why did he address this talk in particular?", Indicating that she is of Asian origin.
Trump replied, "I am not telling you these words in particular. Rather, I am telling it to everyone who might ask a shameful question like this."
Then Trump gave permission to another reporter to ask while she continued and Lijian asked for an answer to her question, before the president moved to a third reporter who was surprised that his press conference suddenly ended and he left while she was interested in asking her question.
Solidarity was quick with Wijian on the Internet, with her hashtag "Support Wujian Jiang," Twitter.
"I stand with Wijia Jiang against Trump's tantrums," tweeted George Taki, an Asian-American activist and actor.
