President Donald Trump pressed a reporter on Monday about whether she was working for the Chinese government after she asked a question about medical supplies that Beijing has provided the United States.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, relevant departments and local governments in China have made every effort to meet the living, epidemic control and medical needs of the foreign citizens, Zhao said, adding that foreign nationals infected with COVID-19 in China are provided timely treatment.

"Do you work for China, or are you with a newspaper?"

Criticism has chiefly focused on allegations of early efforts to squelch news of the outbreak, the true numbers of those who have become sickened and died, and efforts by Xi and the party to portray themselves as riding to the rescue when no others could lead China out of the crisis.

However it seems that Phoenix TV, which has aggressively sought to broaden in the US, has nearer ties to the Chinese authorities than the reporter let on.

Inside minutes of the trade within the briefing room, marketing consultant Elliot Schwartz flagged that in 2018, a former Phoenix TV information director testified as a part of an FCC submitting that the outlet is basically managed by China's Communist Propaganda Division, and follows a directive to not report positively on the USA.

Pong stated he was sacked in 2002 on orders of then-Chinese chief Jiang Zemin.

While Phoenix TV is not wholly owned by the Chinese government, its content is widely considered to be sympathetic to Beijing.

"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 report continued. "Such protection is maybe not coincidental, contemplating that CCTV [China Central Television] reportedly holds a 10 p.c stake in Phoenix".

Within hours of the briefing, high Republicans demanded motion, at the same time as some left-wing journalists implied Trump had acted improperly within the trade. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, wrote on Twitter. "MSM should NEVER have given them seat at WH press conference". The Folks's Republic of China (PRC) exerts management over Chinese media and the management extends to Phoenix: in 2009 testimony to the US Financial & Safety Overview Fee on China, Anne Wilson Middle mentioned 'Phoenix is nominally privately-owned; nonetheless its present most important investor is the State-owned enterprise China Cell.' In 2016... On March 17, Trump was asked during a White House press conference whether he thought calling the coronavirus the "Chinese virus" created a "stigma".

He then appended footage of Conan O'Brien saying, "What the hell is that?" "Now they invite *literal* Communist Chinese propaganda mouthpieces into the WH to question POTUS & applaud it".
