In Frantic Tweet, Trump Blames The Media, Democrats For Coronavirus Health Crisis

Donald Trump on Monday raged against Democrats and the media as the coronavirus crisis threatens to undo his chaotic administration.

Trump and his allies have insisted the outbreak is contained, although the markets are jittery and public events are being canceled to halt the spread of the virus.

The president blamed the media for reporting on the outbreak and “inflaming the coronavirus situation.”

“The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power (it used to be greater!) to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant,” Trump tweeted. “Surgeon General, ‘The risk is low to the average American.’”

Congress is considering a recess to prevent older members from becoming infected, and two Republican lawmakers — Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar — have announced they are quarantining themselves after coming into contact with a coronavirus patient last month.
