President Donald Trump on Friday called NBC News correspondent Peter Alexander “a terrible reporter” for questioning whether Trump is giving Americans false hope of a drug to treat the coronavirus.

During a press conference that aired on C-SPAN on Friday, Alexander asked Trump about National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci’s recent statement that there’s “no magic drug” to treat COVID-19.

Trump said, “maybe there is, maybe there isn’t.”

Alexander then asked, “Is it possible that your impulse to put a positive spin on things is maybe giving Americans a false sense of hope and misrepresenting preparedness right now?”

Trump said, “no I don’t think so,” and sarcastically said,” such a lovely question,” before reiterating that he “has a good feeling” about a coronavirus drug, and that he’s “a smart guy.” 

Alexander asked, “So what do you say to Americans who are scared? 200 dead and 14,000 who are sick and millions who are scared right now.”

“I say that you’re a terrible reporter,” Trump replied, adding, “I think it is a bad signal that you are putting out to the American people. American people are looking for answers and looking for hope, and you’re doing sensationalism. And the same with NBC and Comcast for who you do work — let me say something, that’s really bad reporting. You ought to get back to reporting instead of sensationalism.”
