During the Coronavirus Task Force press conference yesterday, a female reporter began her question to President Trump by listing all of the things China has done for the US before finally asking a question.
The president picked up on what she was doing with more of a statement than a question.
Watch the exchange and note that details later (see below) proved the president right:
President Trump: “Who are you working for, China?”
Reporter: “Hong Kong Phoenix TV”
This network was founded and is run by Liu Changle, a former journalist for the Communist Party of China.
This woman is a reporter for Phoenix TV
US Intelligence identified Phoenix TV as a “major overseas outlet used to spread propaganda & promote the policies of the Communist government in Beijing”

Senator Ted Cruz tweeted out asking why this “reporter” was allowed in the WH press briefing:
“Phoenix TV has been waging information warfare in the US for yrs. They are nominally private but actually state-owned. In 2018 I led effort to block them from using cutouts to spread propaganda. MSM should NEVER have given them seat at WH press conference.”
