As Americans Fight For Their Lives, Trump Lashes Out At Critical Media: ‘All I See Is Hatred Of Me’




President Donald Trump lashed out at a group of news networks and newspapers over their coverage of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic currently gripping the nation.

“I watch and listen to the Fake News, CNN, MSDNC, ABC, NBC, CBS, some of FOX (desperately & foolishly pleading to be politically correct), the @nytimes, & the @washingtonpost, and all I see is hatred of me at any cost,” Trump tweeted late Sunday night.

“Don’t they understand that they are destroying themselves?” he added.



Trump’s tweet came as the death toll from COVID-19 in the U.S. neared 500 and hundreds of Americans fought for their lives on hospital ventilators.

Last week, Trump railed against an NBC reporter, calling him “terrible,” after being asked what he’d say to Americans who are scared.

His angry Sunday night tweet came after Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) said on CNN that states were overpaying for medical equipment and were being forced to compete with each other for much-needed resources. Rather than a competition, it “should have been a coordinated effort by the federal government,” he said.

“It’s a wild, wild West out there, and indeed [we’re] overpaying for [personal protective equipment] because of that competition,” Pritzker said.

Trump railed against Pritzker and CNN just hours later, tweeting that they “shouldn’t be blaming the Federal Government for their own shortcomings.”




Pritzker tweeted in response that Trump “wasted precious months when you could’ve taken action to protect Americans & Illinoisans.”

“Get off Twitter & do your job,” Pritzker said.
