President Trump issued a personal rebuke to a reporter who asked him about people “who are scared” about the coronavirus pandemic.
“I say that you’re a terrible reporter, that’s what I say,” Trump told the reporter, NBC News’s Peter Alexander, at Friday’s White House coronavirus press briefing. “I think that’s a very nasty question, and I think it is a very bad signal that you are putting out to the American people.”

“As we see an increase in testing we are already seeing the number of cases go up,” Verma told “Bill Hemmer Reports”. “It’s important for people to really understand what we will see over the next few days. You are going to see a big increase in testing, but that’s not necessarily because of the rate of infection is going up, it’s because there’s a backlog of tests.” [Read More]
