President Donald Trump turned a question around on a “one-sided” reporter on Wednesday in the Oval Office, which left the reporter fumbling for words and unable to answer the question.
ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl pressed Trump about signing bills so government workers who are being furloughed could be paid.
“So, so, why not sign the other bills though, so some of these workers could get paid?” Karl asked.
“Do you think I should do that?” Trump fired back.
“Y-you –” Karl sputtered.
“No, do you think I should do that, Jon?” Trump pressed.
“I mean, it’s not for me to say,” Karl responded.
“I mean, I watch your one-sided reporting,” Trump continued. “Do you think I should do that? Hey Jon, no, seriously, Jon: Do you think I should just sign?”
“Well, the, the argument –” Karl said, as he continued to fumble through his response.
“Tell me, tell me,” Trump pressed.
“It has nothing to do with border security,” Karl said.
“Jon, do you think I should just sign?” Trump continued to press.
“I-I-I’m saying that if you sign that, these workers can start getting paid, the government can start –” Karl continued.
“So you would do that if you were in my position?” Trump asked. “You’d do that?”
“I’m not in your position, I’m asking you if –” Karl said, refusing to answer the question.
“I’m asking you: Would you do that if you were in my position?” Trump said. “Because if you would do that, you should never be in this position. Because you’d never get anything done.”
