He covered the Presidency of Barack Obama, traveling across the world with the president and is based in Washington, D.C., and still frequently reports from the White House.
In March 20, 2020, he attended a live White House briefing held on steps the federal and state governments were undertaking to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. President Donald Trump stated he had a “good feeling” and was “hopeful” about the potential effectiveness against coronavirus of certain older drug therapies such as chloroquine that have been effective on other conditions. Alexander asked: “Is it possible that your impulse to put a positive spin on things may be giving Americans a false sense of hope?” President Trump answered that it was important to communicate hopeful therapies that are being investigated. Alexander further questioned the president: “What do you say to Americans who are scared though? I guess, nearly 200 dead, 14,000 who are sick, millions, as you witnessed, who are scared right now. What do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?” Trump replied, “I say that you are a terrible reporter, that’s what I say. I think it’s a very nasty question. I think it’s a very bad signal that you are putting out to the American people. They’re looking for answers and they’re looking for hope. And you’re doing sensationalism.” Some news organizations and commentators harshly criticized this response to what they described as a “softball question.”
