Piers Morgan Says Donald Trump Is Failing the American People During Coronavirus Pandemic

Piers Morgan shared some advice to Donald Trump during his appearance on CNN’s Reliable Sources show on Sunday (April 19).

The British news anchor admitted that he considers the 45th President of the United States to be a friend, but has been “horrified” watching how he is handling daily press briefings about the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’ve known him a long time. I consider him to be a friend, but I’ve been watching these daily briefings with mounting horror, frankly, because this is not what the president should be doing. He won’t want me saying this, but I’m gonna say it anyway,” Piers shared.

He added, also speaking of UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, “They’ve got to be calm. They got to show authority. They have to be honest. They have to be accurate, timely factual with what they’re telling the people and they have to have the ability to show empathy.”

“At almost every level of that, Donald Trump at the moment is failing the American people,” Piers continued. “…he has to put the country before himself. He has to put Americans before electioneering. He has to remind himself every day, what can I do today to prevent more lives being killed? Not how can I score more petty points.”
