Trump tears into media at coronavirus briefing: They want economy to stay closed


Indeed. It’s not even a question that many in the MSM want the American economy to fail, since they believe that will give Joe Biden a better chance of defeating President Trump in November. Pure evil. President Trump is 100 percent correct. The MSM is the enemy of the people. And they are doing tremendous damage to the United States. Shame on them. #Trump2020!

Trump tears into media at coronavirus briefing: They want economy to stay closed, ‘would like to see me do poorly in the election’

By Fox News, March 25, 2020:

President Trump doubled down Wednesday on his assertion that the media wants to keep the country closed in order to prevent his reelection during his daily coronavirus briefing at the White House.

After Trump had earlier slammed the “LameStream Media” on Twitter, CBS News correspondent Paula Reid asked the president if his recently announced goal of reopening the economy by Easter was solely a political strategy.

“You’ve tweeted earlier linking the closing of the country to your election success in November. Is this Easter timeline based on your political interests?” Reid asked.

“What do you mean it’s about my election success? No,” Trump responded.

“You said that the media wants the country to remain [closed] to hurt your odds of being reelected,” Reid continued.

“No, the media would like to see me do poorly in the election,” Trump said.

The CBS News reporter grilled the president. saying lawmakers and economists have warned that opening the economy by Easter “is not a good idea.” But Trump pushed back.

“Just so that you understand, are you ready? I think that there are certain people who would like it not to open so quickly, I think there are certain people that would like it to do financially poorly because they think that would be very good as far as defeating me at the polls,” Trump told Reid. “And I don’t know if that’s so, but I do think it’s so that there are people in your profession that would like that to happen.”

He continued, “I think it’s very clear that there are people in your profession that write fake news. You do, she does, there are people in your profession that write fake news. They would love to see me, for whatever reason, because we’ve done one helluva job. Nobody’s done the job that we’ve done — and it’s lucky that you have this group here right now for this problem or you wouldn’t even have a country left.”
