Trump Slams NYT, WaPo For Reporting His Handling Of COVID-19 Crisis

President Donald Trump on Monday railed against the New York Times and Washington Post over criticism from each of the publications regarding his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, calling the news outlets “Fake News sources of information” and “bad for America.”

“Advertising in the Failing New York Times is WAY down. Washington Post is not much better,” Trump tweeted to his more than 76 million followers. “I can’t say whether this is because they are Fake News sources of information, to a level that few can understand, or the Virus is just plain beating them up. Fake News is bad for America!”

It is not clear what prompted the president’s tweet, but two opinion pieces published Monday in the Times and Post, respectively, are particularly scathing.

“Has Anyone Found Trump’s Soul? Anyone?” reads a headline opinion piece by the Times’ Frank Bruni.

“He’s not rising to the challenge of the coronavirus pandemic. He’s shriveling into nothingness,” the sub-headline adds.

“The worst president. Ever,” reads the headline from Max Boot in The Washington Post.
