President Trump is doing an incredible job handling the coronavirus crisis. No matter what he does, he has to deal with the negative and biased reporters at the daily press conferences. The reporters are constantly trying to ask a “gotcha” question.
One of the worst offenders is CNN’s Jim Acosta who just asked President Trump about the “happy talk” at the pressers. Acosta also said that there are shortages of medical supplies, but President Trump hit him back with a great response:
“This isn’t happy talk for me. Maybe this is happy talk for you. We’re talking about death.”
“There’s nothing happy about it, Jim. This is sad talk. These are the saddest news conferences that I’ve ever had. I don’t like doing them. Because I’m talking about death.”
Jim @Acosta says that the press conferences are "happy talk" briefings.

The president also shot down Acosta for claiming there are not enough medical supplies in the US. CNN cut their feed right after Acosta was obliterated by President Trump:
*Jim Acosta gets destroyed by Trump*
*CNN cuts their feed*

President Trump went on to talk about the hard decision he has coming up.
He has to decide when to open up the country to get the economy going again:
“I hope to God it’s the right decision.”
