The US President Donald trump, despite the recommendations of advisers, holds a long daily briefings for the media (sometimes more than two hours) dedicated to the fight against coronavirus infection. The news Agency Reuters noted that the head of the White house like to remind you that he runs the country during one of its most serious crises in the history of the United States.
In this case, said one of the interlocutors of the Agency, Trump suggest less likely to participate in briefings and argue with journalists, not to be distracted from direct presidential duties. However, the head of the White house “believes that everything is fine,” and his performances have a positive impact on the ratings.
However, after short-term growth approval at the beginning of the epidemic, the ranking of trump stopped growing, which is very different “from the outpouring of support that Americans usually show their President during a national crisis,” says Reuters. As an example, the Agency cites a sharp increase in the rating of the 43rd U.S. President George W. Bush after the attacks of 11 September 2001.
One of the senior Republicans expressed the opinion that the aggravation caused by a coronavirus crisis, the ranking of trump collapses even more. “I think that will only get worse,” said an unnamed member of the same party of the President.
Familiar with the situation, the source told the Agency that in connection with the epidemic trump looks more and more tense, as his circle of communication is limited to a minimum. He believes that the President of the United States participation in the briefings – one of the ways to escape.
