President Trump lashed out at NBC reporter Peter Alexander during the coronavirus press conference on Friday.
Alexander asked “What do you say to Americans who are watching right now who are scared?”
He said he was giving Trump a chance to reassure Americans.
Instead Trump ripped into Alexander calling him a “terrible reporter.”
He went on to say “it is a very nasty question and a very bad signal that you’re putting out to the American people. The American people are looking for answers and are looking for help and you’re doing sensationalism!”
Alexander later said in a statement that “Trump probably hasn’t worried about finances much in his life.”
Millions of Americans are expected to report job losses due to coronavirus.
The US stock market is ending its worst week since 2008.
And Goldman Sachs predicts the US economy will shrink at an annual rate of 24% next quarter.
