Trump lashes out at networks, newspapers: All I see is 'hatred of me' (The Hill link): President Trump late Sunday lashed out at much of the media over their coverage of his administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak, claiming that all he's seen is "hatred of me."
"Don't they understand that they are destroying themselves?" he asked.
Trump has regularly attacked the press since entering the White House, often referring to reporters as "fake news" and the "enemy of the people." Last week, Trump railed against an NBC reporter, calling him "terrible," after being asked what he'd say to Americans who are scared.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker said on CNN that states were overpaying for medical equipment and were being forced to compete with each other for much-needed resources. Rather than a competition, it "should have been a coordinated effort by the federal government," he said.
Trump railed against Pritzker and CNN just hours later, tweeting that they "shouldn't be blaming the Federal Government for their own shortcomings." Pritzker tweeted in response that Trump "wasted precious months when you could've taken action to protect Americans & Illinoisans."
"Get off Twitter & do your job," Pritzker said.
