During Monday evening's White House Coronavirus Task Force briefing, President Donald Trump questioned a reporter about whether or not she works for a Chinese-run television network. The questioning was prompted when the reporter asked about the Chinese government and companies, like Huawei and Alibaba, donating medical supplies and personal protective equipment to the United States.
"Who are you working for, China?" Trump asked.
"Hong Kong Phoenix TV," the reporter replied.
"Who owns that, China?" Trump pressed. "Is it owned by China? Is it owned by the state?"
"No, it's not," she said. "It's a private-owned company."
