Reporter Turns to Twitter in Desperate Plea: Biden Admin Waiting Until ’24 to Address Shocking Issue

Uncategorized

An African reporter has turned to his Twitter followers for help as he continues to be ignored by President Joe Biden’s press secretary.

Simon Ateba of Today News Africa has been trying to get White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to answer questions about continued Chinese influence on the African continent.

A desperate and frustrated Ateba took to Twitter to make his voice heard on Monday, asking his followers for advice on how to get Jean-Pierre to call on him.

“Hello guys, what should I do for [press secretary] Karine Jean-Pierre to call on me and other overlooked reporters during press briefings to ask the questions you all care about?” Ateba asked.

Speaking with Tucker Carlson on his primetime Fox News show on Sunday, Ateba revealed that Jean-Pierre has not called on him in four months.

According to Ateba, Jean-Pierre has promised to meet with him but said that such a meeting will have to wait until next year. In the meantime, questions about Chinese involvement in Africa will presumably remain unanswered by the administration.

Ateba said Jean-Pierre has “no clue what is happening in Africa” and accused her of not taking “serious questions,” only ones that she has prepared for in advance.


Ateba has earned a reputation at White House media briefings for speaking up from the back of the pressroom and asking hard-hitting questions that people in both Africa and elsewhere want answers to.

This has led to some contentious moments between him and White House press secretaries.
