President Trump doesn’t take criticism well, and that’s mainly because he thinks he is the end all/be all of everything in existence, which apparently includes deadly viruses. Trump has been holding daily coronavirus press briefings for weeks now, and one thing is certain every time he gets in front of the camera, he is going to act a fool.
That’s what happened Thursday afternoon when Trump was challenged by reporters who questioned a new DHS document that claims coronavirus can be killed with natural heat and humidity.
This is what Trump had to say to those journalists:
“I’m the President and you’re fake news.”

According to CNN:
The coronavirus cannot be transmitted by food or food packaging, according to Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration.
Hahn addressed this topic Thursday evening during CNN’s global town hall on Covid-19.
“I can give great assurance that the American food supply is safe. We also very much care about our food workers, both in the retail and in the manufacturing setting. So it’s really important for folks to follow the CDC guidance in terms of protection. And to the question about getting infection, we have no evidence that the virus, the Covid-19 virus, is transmitted by food or by food packaging,” Hahn said.
People on Twitter were pretty vocal about their feelings towards Trump. You can see what people are saying about the vide below:
