Jake Tapper Slams Trump For Focusing on ‘TV Ratings for His Briefings’ and ‘Approval Ratings’ Amid Pandemic

‘President Trump was focused, on Twitter, on attacking the media and attacking Democrats’

EXCERPT:

TAPPER: "Generally speaking, that and most of the briefing was quite a contrast from the messages President Trump delivered to the nation on Twitter earlier in the day. While many of you are probably more focused on the number of those who are infected and the number of those who have sadly died, the President was extolling the TV ratings for his briefings and his approval ratings among Republicans according to some polls. While the public is eager to have the resources of the nation devoted to focusing on beating the coronavirus, President Trump was focused on Twitter, on attacking the media and attacking Democrats.”
