The Kremlin has confirmed Pres Trump and Putin spoke today, per @Reuters 

A source has sent me 55 mins of audio of Pres Trump's call w/ governors. Trump told governors they need to get "much tougher" or "you’re going to get overridden." He said, "You need to dominate…if you don’t...they are gonna run over you…You’re gonna look like a bunch of jerks."

George Floyd's brother, Philonise, on his conversation w/ Pres Trump on @MSNBC : "It was so fast. He didn't give me the opportunity to even speak. It was hard. I was trying to talk to him but he just kept like pushing me off like 'I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.'"

I offered both Pres Trump and VP Pence an opportunity to reassure Americans. Simple question: “What do you say to Americans who are scared?” Trump, to me: “I say, you’re a terrible reporter.” Pence, an hour later: “Don’t be afraid. Be vigilant.”

When Pres. Trump rails against Dems for doing nothing, he may be confused by how government works. I will explain. If you pass bills in the House (gun control, election security, etc.) and they die in the Senate the do nothings are McConnell and his fellow Republicans.

When I sent Pres. Trump a serious letter on getting critical medical supplies to our frontline fighters, he responded with a petty, unserious letter. To the President: Americans are dying and losing jobs. Businesses are teetering. Stop the pettiness. Be a leader. Do your job.

Pres. Trump calls coronavirus Dems "new hoax" at a cheering rally. I wonder how they'd view the "hoax" if they found out somebody in the crowd was sick with the deadly disease. I say this with sadness. We need our government to lead, or at least get out of the way of the truth.

My Q: When will everyone who needs a coronavirus test be able to get a test? Pres Trump: “No-one is talking about this except you, which doesn’t surprise me." My Q: What about people w/ symptoms who cannot get a test? Trump: "Yeah, well, OK. I’m not— I'm not hearing it."

This is the way the @nytimes  finished a story on me. “You can see the contrast between the steady, assured, informed and strong leadership that VP Biden (Sleepy Joe) has shown, and the bungling, chaotic and dishonest start-stop approach that Mr. (not Pres.) Trump has shown....

Video of my exchange w/ Pres Trump today. My Q is on Trump saying this about governors on Thursday: “I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they are going to be. I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators.”
