President Trump abruptly ended his press conference Monday after being challenged by a female reporter.

After CBS News reporter Weijia Jiang asked President Trump a question about his treatment of coronavirus testing as a global competition, Trump seemingly became irritated and shut down the presser altogether.

"You've said many times that the U.S. is doing far better than any other country when it comes to testing," Jiang, who is a Chinese-American, began. "Why does that matter -- why is this a global competition to you if every day Americans are still losing their lives and we're still seeing more cases every day?"

Trump responded: "Well, they're losing their lives everywhere in the world. And maybe that's a question you should ask China. Don't ask me, ask China that question, okay? When you ask them that question, you may get a very unusual answer."

The president then attempted to move on to another question, calling upon CNN's Kaitlan Collins, but Jiang continued.

"Sir, why are you saying that to me specifically? That I should ask China?"

Trump insisted he was not suggesting this specifically to Jiang, saying, "I'm saying that to anybody who would ask a nasty question like that."

Then, when Collins approached the microphone to ask her question, Trump moved on to someone else. When Collins challenged him, saying he had called on her, Trump simply ended the briefing.

Mmm her questions were 100 percent fair ... his response was not.
2 years. Ago he was asked about the congressional black Caucus.And said he didn’t know them He looked at the black woman reporter and asked. You should know them !!! Set up a meeting. ... she was offended
Just like “ you ask China “ is not the right response

It's called the Free Press, and they're allowed to ask whatever they want. It's only one of the first rights in America.

Biggest thin skinned, temper tantrum throwing man-child there ever was. There's something he can boast about. "I'm the biggest baby, everyone says it, many, many people have told me, and ya know, I didn't say it, but people have said it, it's true. I've got tantrums, so many tantrums, more tantrums than probably anybody, it's unbelievable, you wouldn't believe it. I'm probably the whiniest president of all the presidents, it's tremendous. Believe me."

All the news outlets should only send women reporters. Women really get under the old coots skin.
