President Donald Trump defended his many childish attacks on Twitter by claiming to be the victim during a press conference about the coronavirus:
I only do that when I have to respond … and I will continue to do that. If they’re not gonna play fair — because you know they have the media on their side and I don’t, I just have me — and if they’re not gonna play fair, I’m gonna do that. If they are gonna play fair, there’s gonna be nobody better than Donald Trump in terms of bipartisanship.
I wanted to be bipartisan and nobody’s gonna be better than me, but when they attack me, or these incredible people behind me, I’m not gonna let them get away with it. I can’t do that.
