Donald Trump took to Twitter to complain that the media isn’t giving him enough credit for his virus response. So far, over 58,000 Americans have died from virus infections.
Trump was slow to respond to the outbreak and for weeks downplayed its seriousness.
Then he mismanaged the response, failing to provide medical supplies and resources needed by states as they dealt with the fallout of the virus.
Despite those failures, on Tuesday morning Trump blasted the press for not giving him enough credit for responding.
Trump’s whining tweets on the virus response:
We are doing far more, and better, Testing than any other country in the world, and yet the media does nothing but complain. No matter how good a job is done, the same as with the Ventilators, they will never say we are doing a great job, they will only viciously gripe!
