Yamiche Alcindor on ‘Bringing the Hard Truth to America’
PBS Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor brings hard truth to all Americans while demanding answers from former President Donald Trump.
In the coronavirus press conference, everyone seemed to notice the tension between journalist Yamiche Alcindor and former President Donald Trump for all the wrong reasons. The press briefing was already charged up with news reporters anxious over the President’s failed promises regarding the pandemic and his startling announcements.
Although it proved to be nothing against Trump’s abrasive remarks towards Alcindor after she calmly asked why the White House had dismantled its pandemic-response office.
His reply was, “You know what, that’s why nobody trusts the media anymore. Look, let me tell you something. Be nice. Don’t be threatening.”
Meanwhile, the White House aide came over to Yamiche and snatched the mic from her hand as the President moved to answer another reporter’s question. That wasn’t just the end to the snarky remarks, as another one followed in the briefing when Alcindor asked why the United States was lagging behind other countries like South Korea.
Again Trump counter questioned Alcindor as “We have done more tests than any other country in the world, by far. I know South Korea better than anybody. It’s a very tight — do you know how many people are in Seoul?” He also added, “You should be saying congratulations rather than asking a really snarky question.”

Don’t be threatening.’ I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job. My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward.”
