Trump Shuts Down “Snarky” Question From Jim Acosta: “That’s Why People Don’t Watch CNN”


Trump shut down CNN’s Jim Acosta and turned the tables on his “snarky” question about downplaying the threat of the COVID virus.

“I don’t want panic in the country,” Trump said obviously as one would speak to a child before adding, “I could cause panic much better than even you.”

Trump then turned the tables and asked why Acosta and others don’t report on all the wonderful work American companies are doing to fill any caps in government response.

He has a point – Ford just announced they will have 50k ventilators by July 4th and Roche and Honeywell and Procter and Gamble have done terrific jobs.

“If you look at those individual statements, they’re all true. Stay calm, it will go away… that’s why people just don’t want to listen to CNN anymore.”

“I am very proud of the job they’re doing and instead of asking a nasty, snarky question like that you should ask a real question and other than that, I’m going to someone else.”
