Trump Accuses Media of Trying to Get Him to Keep Country Closed as Long as Possible

Wednesday afternoon, President Trump tweeted:

The LameStream Media is the dominant force in trying to get me to keep our Country closed as long as possible in the hope that it will be detrimental to my election success. The real people want to get back to work ASAP. We will be stronger than ever before!

Per Breitbart, Americans are growing more concerned over the state of the American economy than that of their personal health, a Harris Poll released this week revealed.

The survey, fielded March 21-22 among 2,023 U.S. adults, found that a majority of Americans, 61 percent, now consider the amount of fear in society as “sensible given how serious the [coronavirus] pandemic has become.” That reflects a 15-point jump from the 46 percent of Americans who viewed the fear as warranted last week.

The survey also reviewed the issues people are “increasingly concerned about” and found that concerns over the economy surpass all other worries, including personal health.

Eighty-four percent of respondents, surveyed March 13-14, said they were growing increasingly concerned over the state of the economy, but at the time, worries over the health of older friends and relatives topped the list, with 86 percent. While those concerns have risen over the course of the last week, worries over the economy now top the list, with 91 percent of Americans indicating unease. Meanwhile, 75 percent say they are concerned about their personal health, 90 percent say they are worried about older relatives and friends, and 87 percent indicate concern over the health of Americans “broadly.”
