I think that’s a very nasty question.”“You’re doing sensationalism,” Trump said.U.S. stocks, which had been up for the day before Trump began the news conference, tumbled steadily as the president spoke.

Haberman's tweet included a snippet from the president's remarks, that read, "'I want them to be appreciative,' the president says of governors who are criticizing the federal response."

Opinions | The big question looming over Trump’s coronavirus disaster
The administration's recent actions look deeply suspect.Why is it falling to Democrats to beg, cajole and try to force President Trump into taking numerous specific steps he should be taking himself, right now, to avert untold numbers of preventable American deaths?
"The president knows his quote yesterday about wanting states to be appreciative of the feds," Haberman added, "with implication that's how you get help, was a political error that is likely to show up in ads attacking him in MI and elsewhere. Some of this is to try to get reporters not to use it."
