President Donald Trump is a good president because he isn’t afraid to stand up for what he believes in and defend the hard-working American people. He is honest, and will not take any crap from anyone.
During a press conference on Sunday, CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond was called out by President Trump for his comments about the president playing video clips that praised the government’s handling of the pandemic.
Trump responded, “What I’m doing is standing up for the men and women that have done an incredible job.”
“Those people have been just absolutely excoriated by some of the fake news, like you. You’re CNN, you’re fake news.” He continued, “And let me just tell you, they were excoriated by people like you that don’t know any better because you don’t have the brains you were born with.”
Jeremy Diamond: "More than 22 million Americans are unemployed and 40,000 have died from COVID-19. Is this the time for self-congratulation?"

Can someone get Jeremy some ice for that burn?
The president said he was used to getting unfair press but was increasingly disturbed by reports about the federal government’s handling of the crisis
“It’s not about me, nothing’s about me. You’re never going to treat me fairly, many of you, and I understand that” he said.
Diamond also asked if President Trump was “duped” by President Xi Jinping.
Trump fired back, “You know who was duped? You and the Obama administration was duped for years.” He also defended his China travel ban.
Trump concluded by saying, “You people are so pathetic at CNN … That’s why your ratings are so bad: because you’re pathetic. Your ratings are terrible; you got to get back to real news.”
