CBS News White House Correspondent Weijia Jiang took issue with President Trump when he called on the public to protect the Asian American community and not blame it for the coronavirus.

The article goes on to state the following:

Her tweet came on the heels of a Trump tweet calling for the Asian American community to be protected.

President Trump had said in a Twitter post on Monday, “It is very important that we totally protect our Asian American community in the United States, and all around the world. They are amazing people, and the spreading of the Virus is NOT their fault in any way, shape, or form. They are working closely with us to get rid of it. WE WILL PREVAIL TOGETHER!”
