Donald Trump cannot stand to be challenged by a female. That is evident from numerous past interactions caught on some platform or another. Trump targets women specifically because he believes they are weak. He calls them names and torments them over their weight or physical appearance, and he’s only played it down since becoming president.
Today, however, Trump went after a reporter who asked him about the historic economic crisis faced by millions of Americans today.
Watch the interaction below:

According to CNN:
President Trump said today that he is considering a travel ban on Latin America and called the high number of US Covid-19 cases a “badge of honor” because it means the US is testing more people.
“We are considering it,” the President said when asked if he was considering a travel ban on Latin America, and Brazil in particular, which now has the third highest number of diagnosed coronavirus cases in the world.
“We hope that we’re not going to have a problem. The governor of Florida is doing very, very well testing – in particular Florida, because a big majority come in to Florida. Brazil has gone more or less herd, and they’re having problems,” Trump added.
“I worry about everything, I don’t want people coming in here and infecting our people. I don’t want people over there sick either. By the way, when you say that we lead in cases, that’s because we have more testing than anybody else.”
People watching the video on Twitter left the following, very accurate, remarks:
