Trump blames George Floyd cops and COVID for crisis in his presidency






Donald Trump’s advisers are reportedly trying to lift the spirits of the embattled president, who believes that he built a highly successful country only to have it battered by COVID-19 and the ‘sick, twisted’ officers who killed George Floyd.

Sources speaking to The Washington Post painted a picture of a man seething with resentment about turn of events in the spring and summer.

They described how the president rants about coronavirus destroying ‘the greatest economy’ – which he claims to have personally built.

And he reportedly bemoans the ‘sick, twisted’ police officers in Minneapolis, whose killing of George Floyd on May 25 provoked the nationwide racial justice protests that have confounded the president.

On Thursday, the president erupted with a volley of tweets attacking the Supreme Court after they ruled that the Manhattan district attorney could have access to his financial records, and that Congressional committees could potentially see the documents too.

‘This is about PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT,’ he tweeted.

‘We catch the other side SPYING on my campaign, the biggest political crime and scandal in U.S. history, and NOTHING HAPPENS.’

Barbara Res, a former executive at the Trump Organization, told the paper that his feeling of being victimized was a common trait.

When she worked for Trump, she said, he interpreted nearly everything in deeply personal terms.

‘Whatever bad happened, no matter what it was, it was always against him, always directed at him,’ Res said.

‘He would say, “Why does everything always happen to me?”‘

She added: ‘It was as if the world revolved around him. Everything that happened had an effect on him, good or bad.’

The paper said that his son-in-law Jared Kushner was attempting to soothe him, with the help of Hope Hicks, counselor to the president.

Hicks, with the help of communications adviser Dan Scavino, has reportedly tried to lift Trump’s mood with events they thought he would enjoy, such as celebrating truckers by bringing 18-wheelers onto the White House South Lawn in mid-April or creating social media videos that feature throngs of his adoring fans, according to aides speaking to the paper.

Advisers also tried to assuage his temper by presenting him with internal polling that shows him in a better position than public surveys, which universally show him trailing presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. (Daily Mail)
