Jim Acosta Gets Destroyed By President Trump At COVID-19 Briefing: ‘Ask A Real Question’

On Monday, President Donald Trump held a news briefing outside the White House, featuring some of the nation’s largest businesses who are going to be producing equipment to help America through the COVID-19 crisis.

During the Q&A portion of the briefing, Trump reluctantly called on CNN’s Jim Acosta, saying, “Let’s give it a shot.”

Well, Acosta jumped right into it, asking a loaded question about Trump’s comments earlier in the year downplaying the coronavirus and calling for people not to panic.

Trump immediately refuted Acosta, noting that he, indeed, did not want to cause a panic in the country, saying that he could cause a panic even greater than CNN could.

“It’s why people just don’t want to listen to CNN anymore … Instead of asking a nasty, snarky question like that, you should ask a real question and other than that, I’m going to go to somebody else,” Trump said to Acosta.

Watch:

Currently most of the nation is undergoing shutdowns of businesses and “shelter-in-place” orders. Over 157,000 people are currently affected by the coronavirus, with the epicenter being in New York City.

On Sunday evening, the FDA issued an emergency authorization for long-standing anti-Malaria drugs hydroxychloriquine and chloroquine. With a roll-out of these treatments, the mortality rate is expected to remain low, if not decrease even more.
