Default President Trump's briefings concerning the coronavirus

I am something of a news junkie; so I look forward to the national/international news at 5:00 PM (CST) every Monday through Friday.

Lately, however, the news has been pre-empted--every day--by a "briefing" from the White House, that could just as well have been transmitted by other means (including even Twitter).

I am wondering if, perhaps, the president's advisors have admonished him that his handling of this matter will either make or break his presidency; and if he is, therefore, taking a high profile in its regard.

I suppose that this is a rather cynical interpretation of events.

But I really cannot think of a better explanation.

Can anyone else?

I know he's really worried about the stock market as that is one thing he feels was in his favor for the run in November.
His changing messages and absenting his top expert from the podium is disconcerting.
Also he is unable to do rallies due to the virus, so he's doing a bit of it through these briefings.

I heard the opposite...

As the New York Times wrote just hours ago...

Trumpís Briefings Are a Ratings Hit. Should Networks Cover Them Live?

Trump's approval ratings, both in his handling of the coronavirus AND his overall presidency, have been at all-time highs...

From 5 days ago...

Poll: Americans rally around Trump with 56% approving of his handling of the coronavirus crisis

From today...

Donald Trump Sees Best Approval Rating for Three Years Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

This is due to Trump continually being the voice...As long as he's talking and showing he's not shying away from it, it looks like he's commanding as necessary...

This, of course, is a problem for the Lefty media, so they've begun to make demands to cut away from the press briefings...Intentionally hiding the public from the president's words to kill his approval ratings...

Washington Post...

The media must stop live-broadcasting Trumpís dangerous, destructive coronavirus briefings

Rolling Stone...

Broadcasting Trumpís Coronavirus Briefings Live Is a Danger to Public Health

The Queen of Russia Hoax...

Rachel Maddow urges networks not to air President Trumpís coronavirus press briefings

The LAST thing the Democrat-Party-Sucking media wants is having a president acting as the Commander-In-Chief...so they are starting to make demands the public simply not here from him (and then eventually calling him a non-leader for not speaking publicly)...

The public has been calling for main media outlets to quit covering his briefings because he's giving false impressions and possibly endangering those who believe his every word. like he wants to get everything back to normal on Easter. Well, he shouldn't speculate on air about that. It is a decision best made by governors and mayors for the safety of their people.

Trump has majority APPROVAL from "the public", so please don't sit there and attempt to say "the public" is calling for him to be prevented by the media to have him seen and heard...

but I've seen the opposite re his approval and heard as many as you have give the opposite opinion of him.


At the end of the day it doesn't matter what his approval ratings are if it kills you, redd.

Wait a second, Trump's political opponents are constantly touting opinion polls as proof he is failing. Yet now when they show the public approves of the way he is handling the Chinese virus crisis it's the opinions of the Orange man bad mob that count.

President Trump is leading the response to the biggest threat to the nation since WW II but the Resistance can only reflexively condemn him. The President expressed cautious optimism about some treatment drugs, that's false hope. The President talks about the possibility of partially lifting the quarantine, he's not listening to experts. The Democrats have no response but instead resort to naysaying and of course insist their media toadies act as a ministry of truth to filter and distort the President's communications with the People.

It doesn't matter if you die from the Chinese virus is classic propaganda attempting to blame President Trump for death or illness. Of course the have nothing to offer guaranteeing no body would get sick or die just idiot politicians like NY Governor Cumo insisting US taxpayers shoulder the burden without contributing an extra nickle from his budget.

Misinformation much?

For those highly touted 'educated' folks, there is a dearth of common sense. Perhaps researching on one's own rather than trusting anything prompted by media will save you.
