President Donald Trump on Monday accused the American media of trying to illegally interfere in the 2020 presidential election by accurately reporting on the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“We have made tremendous progress with the China Virus, but the Fake News refuses to talk about it this close to the Election,” the president wrote. “COVID, COVID, COVID is being used by them, in total coordination, in order to change our great early election numbers. Should be an election law violation!”

The president’s accusations against the news media comes as the average number of new COVID-19 infections hit a record high over the weekend.

According to the COVID-19 Tracking Project, there have been an average of 68,954 infections per day over the past seven days.

Despite the fact that infections are hitting record highs, the president has continued to claim that the United States has “rounded the corner” on the pandemic.

President Donald Trump took one minute out of his day on Tuesday to hold a press conference in which he took credit for gains in the stock market, which came after President-elect Joe Biden's transition was allowed to formally begin.

At his press conference which lasted almost exactly one minute, Trump credited his administration for after the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 30,000 for the first time.

"The stock market, it's just broken 30,000," the president said. "Never broken that number. That's a sacred number. Nobody thought they would ever see it. That's the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it's the 48th time that we have broken records in -- during the Trump administration."

In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
