President Trump was surprised by a Yahoo reporter who apologized after getting a fact about testing wrong.

According to Town Hall:

A Yahoo! reporter got his facts wrong during President Trump’s briefing with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday. The reporter, Hunter Walker, asked Trump why South Korea was far outpacing the U.S. on testing per capita. A surprised President Trump shot back that Walker’s numbers didn’t sound quite right, and Dr. Deborah Birx confirmed his suspicions a few minutes later. Addressing Walker, Birx corrected him that while South Korea is at 11 tests per 100,000, the U.S. is at 17 per 100,000. 

“Alright, are you going to apologize Yahoo!?” Trump asked the reporter. “That’s why nobody knows who you are, including me.”

Birx was a bit more civil, simply telling Walker to double check his numbers.

Then something amazing happened. He actually apologized.


During a proceeding press conference with small business owners, President Trump thanked Walker for his apology.
