Trump Cuts To Campaign-Style Video Ad In The Middle Of COVID-19 Press Conference

Published

Donald Trump is using the coronavirus daily briefings as a chance to push his reelection campaign. On Monday, the White House inserted a campaign-style video during the briefing at an attempt to bury the criticism that the president has received over his response to the outbreak.

The video appeared to have been copied from a montage used on Sean Hannity’s show.

“It’s very sad when people write false stories,” Trump said after the video finished. “We have hundreds of statements, including from Democrats and Democrat [sic] governors.”

People on social media commented on Trump’s attempt to run a press briefing as if it were one of his rallies. They weren’t happy. Take a look at some responses below:

White House reporter Jon Karl also called out the president for playing a “campaign ad” during the briefing.
