Fox News reporter Peter Doocy has once again made headlines for his tough questioning at the White House Press Conference.
During Wednesday’s briefing, Doocy pressed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on President Biden’s stance towards China, specifically asking why he was “afraid” of the Chinese.
Doocy cited Biden’s inaction on Chinese spy balloons and his refusal to hold China accountable for the origin of COVID-19 as reasons for his intense questioning.
Jean-Pierre defended the president, stating that he was not afraid of China and pointing to his recent trip to Ukraine as evidence of his courage.
However, Doocy continued to press on, interjecting at one point to remind Jean-Pierre that China had created a virus that had killed over 1.1 million people in the US and that Biden was not punishing them for it.
Following the exchange, many people took to Twitter to praise Doocy for his reporting. Some even called for him to receive a raise for his tough questioning.
This interaction highlights the ongoing tension between the US and China and the importance of holding China accountable for its actions.
