During a COVID-19 national White House briefing on Wednesday, CBS News’ Paula Reid questioned Trump’s proposal of the Easter timeline and tweet about the “lamestream media.”

“The media would like to see me do poorly in the election,” Trump replied.

“Just so you understand — are you ready? — I think there are certain people who would like it to not open so quickly, I think there are certain people that would like it to do financially poorly because they think that would be very good as far as defeating me at the polls.”

“I don’t know if that’s so, but I do think it’s so that there are people in your profession that would like that to happen, I think it’s very clear… that there are people in your profession that write fake news. You do, she does — there are people in your profession that write fake news.”

“I hear that Fake News CNN just reported that I am isolated in the White House, wondering out loud, “when will life return to normal?” Does anybody really believe that? There was no leak, they made it up – they are CORRUPT & FAKE NEWS….” Trump tweeted.

“…I have been packed all day with meetings, I have no time for stupidity. We’re working around the clock to KEEP AMERICA SAFE!”
