Trump: US Is “Way Ahead” Of Virus Thanks To Me

Politico reports:

President Trump early Friday tweeted that the U.S. was way ahead of the curve when it came to stemming the spread of coronavirus thanks to measures taken by his administration.

Trump also accused congressional Democrats early Friday morning of unfairly blaming the coronavirus’ threat to Americans on his administration, tying the global health epidemic even closer to domestic politics.

The president’s various complaints regarding Democratic criticism and media coverage of his management of the virus come as he has broadened his administration’s response to the crisis in recent days, even while continuing to downplay the risk it poses to the U.S. amid dire warnings from health officials.
