'This is deranged': Trump gets flayed over 'flailing' attempt to downplay coronavirus pandemic

President Donald Trump on Monday issued a series of panicky tweets insisting that he and his administration have the coronavirus pandemic under control.


Even as the stock market plummeted over fears of the virus's spread and the crash of the price of oil, the president tried to cheer Americans up by pointing out that gas prices would soon be coming down.

The president followed this up with a tweet telling everyone to stop panicking about the virus because "nothing is shut down, life and the economy go on."

Trump's happy talk failed to persuade many Twitter users, however, who accused the president of being "deranged."
