President Donald Trump doesn’t seem to have a great relationship with reality. On Tuesday, the day after a report came out from The New York Times detailing apparent financial struggles at his campaign, Trump wound himself up into a rage on Twitter while trying to defend his team. After an earlier rant about the same subject, Trump claimed that his campaign “was forced to spend in order to counter the Fake News reporting about the way we handled” the Coronavirus — which he called, yet again, the “China Virus,” as if being a racist and “owning the libs” are his only guiding principles in life. To be clear: there is no widespread “fake” reporting about his Coronavirus response. Over 190,000 Americans have died on his watch. That’s not fake. That’s a fact.

Trump tweeted:

‘Because of the China Virus, my Campaign, which has raised a lot of money, was forced to spend in order to counter the Fake News reporting about the way we handled it (China Ban, etc.). We did, and are doing, a GREAT job, and have a lot of money left over, much more than 2016. Like I did in the 2016 Primaries, if more money is needed, which I doubt it will be, I will put it up!’

It’s amazing for him to act like some kind of altruist. According to the report from the Times, about $4 million has gone out of GOP coffers into the Trump family business since 2019. Meanwhile, Trump is lying about the other topics. For example, he has consistently claimed that the so-called “ban” that he placed on travel from China during the early part of the pandemic saved something like hundreds of thousands of lives. There is no apparent evidence, whatsoever, which supports that claim. Furthermore — it wasn’t even a “ban” that he imposed. Tens of thousands of travelers came from China to the U.S. after the restrictions were implemented. Trump is not missing out on some kind of credit for some non-existent great response.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Trump also belligerently demanded violence against peaceful protesters, many of whom are black. In a feat of willful ignorance, he adamantly refused to acknowledge the difference between vast swathes of peaceful demonstrators and the isolated instances of violence that have sprung up.
