An announcement from President Donald Trump that he was canceling a scheduled press conference at the G-20 out of respect for the passing of former President George H.W. Bush was greeted with more than a little skepticism on Saturday morning.

Early Saturday, Trump tweeted, “I was very much looking forward to having a press conference just prior to leaving Argentina because we have had such great success in our dealing with various countries and their leaders at the G20…. However, out of respect for the Bush Family and former President George H.W. Bush we will wait until after the funeral to have a press conference.”

Faced with the bombshell guilty plea and confession by his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, just as he left for Argentina, many on Twitter speculated that the president didn’t want to face a foreign press that can be even more hostile than American reporters.

As one Trump critic noted: “You respect nobody. Another funeral you will not be welcomed at. You canceled your press conference because you are afraid.”

The nature of presidential record-keeping, and Trump's habit of ripping up documents and making enemies of his staffers, should ensure a steady flow of shocking news about the Trump administration long after he finally leaves the White House, wrote journalist Timothy Noah for The Atlantic.

Trump baffled by vaccine hold-up because he has the ’emotional make-up of a small child’: CNN

Published

Reporting on a planned White House task force meeting on Tuesday where FDA head Steven Hahn is expected to provide an update on the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, CNN's John Harwood said officials in the government are having to fend off a pestering Donald Trump.

According to CNN's Jim Sciutto, Trump is "upset" that the vaccine hasn't been released to the public yet because he doesn't understand the complexity of the massive public health project and why the FDA hasn't approved the vaccine's release.

"This is not the first time we've been concerned about the president interfering, perhaps with an eye towards politics, to the scientific questions about vaccine approval. What do we know?" Sciutto asked.
