On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump had spoken to Rudy Giuliani over unsecured phone lines.

If he was using an unsecured phone to talk to Giuliani about Ukraine, Trump would effectively be allowing the Russians to listen in.

CNN confirmed the unsecured phone use, reporting “President Donald Trump has continued to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated warnings from his staff that the practice could leave him vulnerable to foreign surveillance, multiple officials told CNN.”

But on Friday, Trump lashed out at CNN as “fake news” for covering the scandal.

“Fake News CNN is reporting that I am ‘still using personal cell phone for calls despite repeated security warnings.’ This is totally false information and reporting. I haven’t had a personal cell phone for years,” Trump claimed. “Only use government approved and issued phones.”

“Retract!” Trump demanded.

Trump’s tweet was sent using the “Twitter for iPhone” application.

"The problem is this," Hotez said. "The President and the White House seem to be looking for excuses not to contain this virus."

"Things have been spiraling out of control now for a few weeks," he continued, pointing out that the virus will likely kill upwards of 300,000 people by the end of the year.

Senate Republicans provide a surprisingly potent sign of Trump’s growing impotence

Published

I’m not sure what kind of game Steven Mnuchin is playing, but it’s pretty clear that it’s a game. Gross domestic product fell by nearly 10 percent in the second quarter, as all of us were forced to cut back on account of the novel coronavirus pandemic. The drop, according to the Times, was the equivalent of a 32.5 percent annual rate of decline, “the most devastating three-month collapse on record,” which wiped out five years of growth. All of this would have been worse without government stimulus.
