Donald Trump lashed out at NBC News reporter Philip Rucker during Thursday’s coronavirus briefing after the reporter questioned the president’s “wacky and unproven suggestions about possible coronavirus treatments.”
Trump has pushed different unproven treatments that would cure COVID-19 and many people have actually died as a result of it.
When Trump was questioned on it, he responded by saying “I’m the president and you’re fake news.”
