President Donald Trump is reportedly “furious” at the CDC for telling lawmakers and the American public the virus that has killed thousands will spread into communities across the U.S.
The news plunged the markets even further on Tuesday, with the DOW dropping 2000 points in just two days.
On Wednesday, Trump tried to blame the news media for informing the public about the risks of coronavirus.
He also went after Democrats, as if they were the ones who made the determination the coronavirus will greatly affect Americans’ day-to-day lives.
And he spelled coronavirus wrong. It did not go well.

Trump Regime is responding to this pandemic just like any other authoritarian regime: declare everything is perfect, threaten media for reporting, threaten opposition for asking for help, attack people in government who try to help.

Hard to take a man serious when he says we're safe against a pandemic when he can't spell it correctly.

I didn’t just criticize Pres. Trump’s pathetic, inadequate funding request
I noted his incompetence, how he has no plan to deal with coronavirus
He’s dismantled NSC’s global health security team, wants to cut CDC by 16%, hasn’t appointed 1 person to oversee coronavirus response https://t.co/i4CIx1ZGMr
