During last night’s coronavirus press briefing, which many leftist media outlets are no longer carrying since they demonstrate the President’s continued strength, intelligence, and ability, the deep state and liberal controlled minions went all out in their attack.
Basically, the head of the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) invited a ‘journalist’ who works for a Chinese state-linked news outlet in the U.S. And that ‘journalist’ proceeded to spew communist talking points before President Trump called her out.
It’s no wonder why President Trump calls the U.S. media the enemy of the American people. If giving precedence to a known Chinese propagandist isn’t enough to convince you, check out the silent approval Fauci delivers.
Sundance at Conservative Treehouse reported:
ABC News chief Washington DC narrative engineer Jonathan Karl is the current rotating head of the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA).
The WHCA has a customary and traditional role of selecting the journalists who will participate in the White House daily briefing.
Yesterday WHCA head Jonathan Karl invited a known propagandist for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) into the briefing room to question President Trump.

That said, the bigger question should be asked of Jonathan Karl:
Why did the White House Correspondents Association intentionally invite a communist propagandist to attend the briefing?… Asking questions about a crisis the Chinese communists created?
Perhaps more disturbing; and clearly exhibiting his political alignment with the effort; Dr. Fauci signals his approval for Jonathan Karl’s efforts as he exited the briefing. WATCH:

After Fauci deliberately ensured he was the last person to exit the stage, he attempted the sly signal of a ‘job well done’ in return to the salute he received from Jonathan Karl.

President Trump set ABC’s Jon Karl straight after he started an argument over an HHS IG report on the medical supply shortage.
Jon Karl tried to leave out the fact that Trump’s HHS inspector general previously served in the Obama Admin.
“See, there’s a typical fake news deal…you’re a third rate reporter and what you just said is a disgrace… you will never make it,” Trump said.

The reporter, who said she was with Phoenix TV, a Hong Kong-based outlet sympathetic to Beijing, began her question by noting that the Chinese government and companies like Huawei and Alibaba have donated medical supplies and equipment to the U.S. to handle coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s a statement more than a question,” Trump said after the reporter finished listing off the aid.
Trump then went on a riff about a massive trade deficit between the U.S. and China that he said he has addressed during his administration.
The reporter interjected to ask Trump, “Are you cooperating with China?”

Trump shot back: “Who are your working for, China?”
“Do you work for China, or are you with a newspaper? Who are you with?” he continued.
The reporter said that she works for Phoenix TV.
“Who owns that, China? Is it owned by China? Is it owned by the state?” Trump pressed.
“It’s a private company,” the reporter said.
While Phoenix TV is not wholly owned by the Chinese government, its content is widely considered to be sympathetic to Beijing.
The Hoover Institution regards it as a “quasi-official” news outlet with links to the Chinese government’s ministry of state security.
Freedom House, a pro-democracy think tank, said in a 2017 report that Phoenix TV is owned by a former Chinese military officer with close ties to Beijing officials.
“Phoenix TV’s coverage is typically favorable to the CCP [Chinese Communist Party],” the report says.
“Moreover, over the past two years, it has been used as an outlet for airing televised confessions by various detained CCP critics, most notably all five Hong Kong booksellers abducted by Chinese security forces in late 2015.”
The Chinese government’s propaganda machine has hyped medical aid that it has provided the United States and other countries during the pandemic.
Cui Tiankai, China’s ambassador to the U.S., published a New York Times op-ed on Sunday highlighting the aid.
Of course, despite these constant attacks, the president continues to do an AWESOME job, avoiding the traps set for him at every step.
