President Donald Trump on Tuesday once again bragged about the television ratings that his press conferences are getting even though the United States is still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic.


"I’ve had great 'ratings' my whole life, there’s nothing unusual about that for me," the president wrote. "The White House News Conference ratings are 'through the roof'... but I don’t care about that. I care about going around the Fake News to the PEOPLE!"

Trump's latest boast about his TV ratings came at a time when more than 42,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, which has also tallied nearly 800,000 confirmed infections in the United States.

According to the Financial Times, America has been losing an average of 2,000 people to the disease per day over the last week, and it is still not clear that the country has reached its peak in terms of daily deaths.

Given this, Trump's latest ratings boast went over like a lead balloon with many Twitter users -- check out some reactions below.
