Yesterday, the President revised his timeline for getting America “back to normal.” His administration will be extending certain rules until the end of April. During his announcement, he fired back at the media for their continued campaign of fake news and fear. And he took to Twitter to hammer the Democrats in the House.
Millions of Americans are suffering as the result to the massive limits set by the government. But the reason we have to take such measures is because of how poorly equipped our agencies were. Years of red tape and barriers prevented the CDC and FDA to provide a rapid response. We have Democrats and bureaucrats to thank for that.
Despite hoping to bring things back to normal by Easter, Trump was forced to extend certain guidelines through April. Instead of applauding his efforts to save lives, the media continued their negative agenda, prompting fierce blowback.
Trump unloaded after PBS News’ Yamiche Alcindor — a frequent Trump antagonist…
Alcindor accused Trump of saying that governors were requesting equipment they “don’t actually need.” In fact, Trump said that in some cases, “equipment’s being asked for that I don’t think they’ll need” by the end of the pandemic. Alcindor doubled down when Trump pushed back on her characterization of his comments.
“Why don’t you people act a little more positively — it’s always trying to get-you, get-you, get you,” Trump responded. “And you know what? That’s why nobody trusts the media anymore. That’s why you used to work for the Times and now you work for somebody else. Let me tell you something: Be nice. Don’t be threatening. Be nice.” [Source: Fox News]
The liberal media continues its bang-up job. Instead of focusing on relevant information that can help Americans, they tried to stir up drama. All so they can go back to their outlets with dirt on the president. Trump fired back at several reporters, slamming their shoddy work.
Minutes later, Trump tusseled with CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, who alleged the president had definitively said on Friday that he’d cut off communications with governors who weren’t appreciative of his coronavirus efforts…

It’s amazing how completely tone-dear and out-of-touch our media is. We are facing a serious, wartime-like crisis. Americans are dying and many more are suffering serious setbacks. And this is what the media is talking about? All they want to do is trap Trump. Get him to say something they can distort. All in the name of pushing politics.
And they wonder why their approval is in the toilet?
President Trump went on to call out the Democrats’ political games during this crisis. Republican senators quickly hammered out a bill to provide relief to ailing Americans. But Democrats stalled the vote, while Nancy Pelosi tried to force radical funding goals into her own version. Trump slammed them for wasting time (and costing lives), calling on Americans to get them out of office.
