Critics slammed President Donald Trump on Sunday for posting tweets touting the television ratings of his news conferences about the coronavirus outbreak, which has now killed more than 2,300 people in the U.S. 

Trump's tweets were in response to a New York Times article that said the audience for his briefings was as large as that for popular programming such as “The Bachelor” and “Monday Night Football” 

“Because the ‘Ratings' of my News Conferences etc. are so high, ‘Bachelor finale, Monday Night Football type numbers' according to the @nytimes, the Lamestream Media is going CRAZY,” Trump tweeted. He quoted the Times article in three more tweets, which cited the millions of people who have tuned in for his briefings and a CBS News poll that found Republicans have far more faith in Trump than the news media.
