My enemies want me to keep the country closed because of coronavirus so I lose the election – Donald Trump makes bizarre claim against ‘fake news
Trump then snapped back at a reporter who asked him about the issue.
‘I think there are certain people who would like it not to open so quickly and they think that would be very good as far as defeating me at the polls,’ he told CBS’ Paula Reid in response to her question.
‘There are people in your profession that would like that to happen. I think it’s very clear — I think it’s very clear that there are people in your profession that write fake news,’ he told her. ‘You do.’
‘They would love to see me for whatever reason because we’ve done one hell of a job,’
‘Nobody’s done the job we’ve done, and it’s lucky you have this group here for this problem or you wouldn’t even have a country left.’
Trump fired off another tweet to complain about his press coverage.
‘The LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success. The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!,’ he wrote.
