    Trump Lashes Out at Networks, Newspapers: All I See is 'Hatred of Me' IlWna

    From The Hill

    Justin Wise of The Hill wrote: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."

    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.

    His tirade against the group of news outlets came after a day in which several state and federal lawmakers called on the president to use his authority to help health systems being overwhelmed by a surge of patients.

    Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) 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.

    "It's a wild, wild West out there, and indeed [we're] overpaying for [personal protective equipment] because of that competition," Pritzker 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.

    Speaking at a White House briefing on Sunday, Trump said that he would reject calls to ramp up production of critical medical supplies through the use of the Defense Production Act.

    He said that he's used the law as a source of leverage in negotiations with companies to persuade them to manufacture equipment, but he contended that it would nationalize industries and that he was not in favor it. The Defense Production Act does not nationalize industry, but it does allow the government to direct private businesses to make certain supplies.

    "We're a country not based on nationalizing our business. Call a person over in Venezuela," Trump told reporters. "How did nationalization of their businesses work out? Not too well."

    Let's get to the basis of this article. First of all, an NBC reporter had a legitimate question in regard to the President of the United States calming the fears of most Americans. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) once said "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." If he were alive today and serving as President today, I believe those are the words we would be hanging on to as we fight this disease. Donald Trump, on the other hand would rather bash the reporter for asking a question like that, calling the reporter "terrible." Are you serious?

    As of this post, there are 366,946 cases of the coronavirus worldwide with a death toll of 16,100. Here in the United States, we have 40,855 cases with a death toll of 483. While those numbers may matter to you, Mr. Trump, the one thing you haven't counted on was how many Americans are in fear of this virus and the disease that comes along with it. So yes, the reporter asked you a legitimate question. I'm just an average "Joe Blow" and we would like to hear exactly how you are going to calm America's fears of the coronavirus. Today, the Surgeon General says this week is gonna be bad. The coronavirus is 'accelerating'. Another reporter is going to ask you this question again, Mr. Trump. Are you going to call that reporter terrible, are you going to say something that is going to alleviate the fears of Americans coast-to-coast? This is where you really have a chance to shine before the country. Right now, you are not doing your job.

    Just Saying.
