Donald Trump abruptly exited his White House press conference on Wednesday claiming he had an “emergency” phone call to attend to.
“I have to leave for an emergency phone call. … I’ll be back. I will see you tomorrow,” he said after briefly answering a question about the administration’s work on a coronavirus vaccine and yielding the podium to White House coronavirus adviser Scott Atlas.
“I have a big call. A really big call,” Mr Trump said.
