Donald Trump cares more about getting his face in front of a camera than he cares about the condition of the people in this country. His ego will end up getting a lot of people killed by the end of all of this, and we will be left with so much video evidence that it will be hard for the president to say that he took the outbreak seriously at first warning.
Trump’s Friday press briefing was a total mess from the beginning, as you can see in the video that Trump posted to his Twitter feed. Check it out below:

According to CNN:
As Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott formulated a plan this week to reopen the world’s 10th largest economy, he had to strike a delicate balance between two opposing forces: a push from the state’s powerful business community eager to get back to work and health professionals and economists warning that a premature restart could be deadly.
In the end, Abbott took a measured approach. Instead of kicking off a full restart, the Texas governor announced that a group of medical and economic experts will guide him through a series of incremental steps aimed at slowly reopening the state’s economy.
The group’s aggressive name, the “Strike Force to Open Texas,” belies Abbott’s surprisingly cautious framework. Plans to restart business won’t come until April 27, and Abbott stressed they will be determined by “data and by doctors.”
Still, Abbott is ahead of the curve as one of the first big state governors to announce a firm time line for lifting his April 2 stay-at-home order.
People responding on Twitter went out of their minds, and the feed is LIVE, so the comments are just pouring in. You can see some of the top responses left on the post below:
