The Hill reports:
President Trump in an early morning tweet on Sunday accused the press of failing to report coronavirus outbreaks in other nations as cases surge in the U.S. Trump linked to coverage of a state of disaster being declared in Victoria, Australia due to a resurgence of the virus.
The Australian state reported 671 new cases of the virus and seven deaths on Sunday. Australia overall has seen more than 18,000 cases and just over 200 deaths, compared to the U.S.’s 4.71 million cases and 157,000 deaths, the most of any country.
Big China Virus breakouts all over the World, including nations which were thought to have done a great job. The Fake News doesn’t report this. USA will be stronger than ever before, and soon! https://t.co/pZwjvgmVTO

Donald Trump is literally celebrating the fact that COVID19 is breaking out all over the world because he thinks it makes his horrific handling of the virus in America look less horrific!
