  • this morning, President Trump lashing out at his critics.

  • I don't mind being criticized, but not when they're wrong.

  • During a combative briefing on the Corona virus, the president defended his response to the pandemic and played a campaign style video during the news conference.

  • The press has not treated these incredible people who have done such a great job.

  • They haven't treated unfairly.

  • President Trump says the video was produced by White House staff, which immediately got the attention of the former head of the Office of Government Ethics, who tweeted.

  • So our tax dollars and the presidential mansion we own are now being used to broadcast campaign ads.

  • Dr.

  • Anthony Fauci then clarified an answer he gave during a Sunday interview when he said more lives could have been saved if the U.

  • S.

  • Had made earlier efforts to contain the virus.

  • The nature of the hypothetical question was, if in fact, we had mitigated earlier, could lives have been saved?

  • And the answer to my question was, as I always do and I'm doing right now, perfectly honestly say yes.

  • I mean, obviously the first and only time that Dr Burke's and I went in and formally made a recommendation to the president.

  • The president listened to the recommendation bounty, making that clarification Monday after President Trump retweeted a post Sunday night that called for Foulke to be fired.

  • This is the world we live in.

  • You're going to see things like that all the time.

  • I think that was as a result of answer to a question that I was given by a reporter, which was a valid question.

  • It was a hypothetical question.

  • Somebody didn't like the way I answered it, so they hash tag that fire, found she.

  • That's that's it.

  • That's the world we live and I accepted.

  • It doesn't bother me, Doctor found.

  • She went on to say a lack of information early in the crisis prevented him from knowing how the virus spreads.

  • President Trump also highlighted his decision to restrict travel from China and late January, but he was then pressed on what the administration did him February to prepare a month during which the president is accused of downplaying the threat.

  • What do you do when you have no case in the whole United States when you excuse me?

  • You reported it zero cases, zero deaths on January 17 Janu.

  • I said in Jenny January 30 doing your time, your travel ban a lot, a lot.

  • And in fact, we'll give you a list what we did.

  • In fact, part of it was up there.

  • We did a lot.

  • Look, you know, you're a fake, you know that your whole network, the way you cover is.

  • As for reopening the economy, the president declared he has total authority when it comes to how and went to ease up on social distancing.

  • When somebody is the president of the United States, the authority is total, and that's the way it's gotta be.

  • But according to constitutional experts, Trump is wrong.

  • The president can't issue guidelines, but the authority to close businesses during the public health crisis is reserved to the states, not the federal government.

  • You said when someone is president of the United States, their authority is total.

  • That is not true.

  • Okay, you know what?

  • We're going to write up papers on this.

  • It's not gonna be necessary because the governor's need us one way or the other.

  • Has any governor agreed that you have the authority to decide when their state I haven't?

  • Because you know why because I don't have to go ahead.

  • The president has the total authority enough.

  • The governor of New York is teaming up with six other states to develop a plan to reopen the East Coast, similar to a plan on the West Coast.

  • He disagrees with Trump's assessment.

  • We don't have a key.

  • We haven't elected president.

  • Michigan critics are planning a rally tomorrow to protest the governor's stay at home order.

  • Meanwhile, in Europe, some countries are now trying to ease their lockdowns.

  • But France and the UK keeping there's in place.
