Trump’s not messing around.
According to Breitbart News, President Donald Trump slammed a PBS reporter after he reportedly asked a “nasty” question.
PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor asked Trump, “You said that you ‘don’t take responsibility,’ but you did disband the White House Pandemic Office, and the officials that were working in that office left this administration abruptly. So what responsibility do you take for that? The officials in that office said that the White House lost valuable time because that office was disbanded. What do you make of that?”
Trump responded to the question by shaking his head in disapproval. “Well, I just think it’s a nasty question,” he said, “because what we’ve done is — and Tony had said numerous times — that we’ve saved thousands of lives because of the quick closing.”
“And when you say “me,” I didn’t do it,” Trump continued. “We have a group of people, I could ask, perhaps, my administration. I could perhaps ask Tony about that because I don’t know anything about it,” he said, turning and gesturing toward Dr. Tony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “You said we did that, I don’t know anything about it.” You can read the full article here.
