No more coronavirus briefings? Trump tweets he’s through
President Trump on Saturday canceled his near-nightly coronavirus press briefing, instead issuing an evening tweet calling the appearances “not worth the time & effort!”
“What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately,” he groused.
The tweet came at about the time he usually holds his briefings.
Trump has caught two days of flak after musing aloud at Thursday’s briefing about curing COVID-19 patients by injecting them with household disinfectants, later claiming he was being “sarcastic.”
Friday’s briefing had lasted fewer than 30 minutes — and he took no questions.
