On Saturday, Trump also said that his press briefing was ‘not worth the time and effort’ as his administration prepared to adjust his public presence amid the coronavirus pandemic towards addressing the nation’s economic woes.

He also tweeted saying, “What is the purpose of having White House News Conferences when the Lamestream Media asks nothing but hostile questions, & then refuses to report the truth or facts accurately”. 

His comments come after he used a briefing to muse about injecting chemical disinfectants in people to cure COVID-19 infection. However, after his statement, several manufacturers and nation’s top medical professionals drew warnings. The White House also claimed that Trump was ‘misinterpreted’ and he himself also said that he was speaking ‘sarcastically’.
