President Donald Trump spent Monday morning in a tweet of self-praise from his home in Mar-a-Lago before going to fundraisers for his re-election campaign.
His online attack came when world markets tore away and members of Congress put themselves in quarantine amid care to be exposed to the corona virus.
A new oil war, fueled by fear of the disease, confused the markets when investors gave their alarm about the expected economic damage from the virus. In the US, the S&P 500 and the Dow fell by more than 7 percent at the start of trading.
Due to the Coronavirus situation, Trump has to deal with an enemy he cannot break through with a tweet, a song during a campaign collection, a mocking name or a military attack.

And the president signaled his frustration and anger with his Monday-morning Tweet-fest, where he swung back and forth between the media blaming flames of fear of the corona virus and taking part in the democratic presidential nomination process.
Trump will spend the afternoon in Orlando with a few fundraisers with closed doors after spending the weekend with multiple fundraising events at his Mar-a-Lago estate and playing golf with members of the World Series Champion Washington Nationals. He also held a dinner with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on Saturday night in Mar-a-Lago.
The president’s re-election campaign said he is expected to raise around $ 10 million this weekend.
Trump shot 10 tweets before 9:30 am before leaving Mar-a-Lago.
“The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democratic Party, are doing everything in their power to ignite the CoronaVirus situation within the semi-considerable power (formerly bigger!), Far beyond what the facts would justify. Surgeon General: “The risk is low for the average American,” he wrote.
Trump’s administration has been criticized for its response to the epidemic, in particular for the lack of kits to test the disease.
There have been 22 deaths in the United States due to the disease and the number of infected has reached more than 500.
Trump defended the work of his administration.
‘Fantastic done by the @vp and the CoronaVirus Task Force. Thanks! “He wrote.
“The BEST decision was the hardest of all – that saved many lives. Our VERY early decision to stop traveling to and from certain parts of the world!, He added.
Meanwhile, two congressmen have announced that they will place themselves in quarantine after coming into contact with a person at CPAC who later tested positive for the corona virus.
Texas-based Ted Cruz said he shook hands with the infected man and quarantined himself for 14 days.
“I was told last night at CPAC 10 days ago that I had brief contact with a person who is currently symptomatic and has tested positive for COVID-19,” Cruz said in a statement on Sunday. “That interaction consisted of a short conversation and a handshake.”

Ted Cruz said Sunday that he is quarantining himself because he “had brief contact with a person who is currently symptomatic and has tested positive for COVID-19” at CPAC. Cruz is shown at that conference on 28 February
Republican Rep. Paul Gosar from Arizona joined Cruz by quarantining himself.
“I announce that, along with three of my senior employees, I am officially under self-quarantine after prolonged contact at CPAC with a person who has since been admitted to hospital with the Wuhan virus,” he said.
Trump was also on CPAC, but the White House said he had no direct contact with the infected person.
The president was concerned on Saturday that the disease was getting closer to the White House.
“No, I’m not worried at all,” he told reporters in Mar-a-Lago.
The president also complained about the Democratic presidential primary, renewing his accusation that Elizabeth Warren hurt Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday by staying in the race for as long as she did, and by re-issuing his warning the Sanders party tried to refuse the nomination .
“Elizabeth” Pocahontas “Warren single-handedly destroyed the Bernie Sanders campaign by removing voters from his Super T count. He lost states that he would easily have won if she had stopped 3 days earlier. The DNC is putting Bernie on again! Will he ever get angry, he wrote.
And he also brought the warning from Chuck Schumer to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, that they would pay a price for their abortion decisions, a move that gave the senator a rare reprimand from Chief Justice John Roberts.
“Cryin” Chuck Schumer said, “You pay the price for this. You won’t know what HIT YOU.” That goes far beyond simple rhetoric. That is a physical threat, or at least a threat that you can vote for better. “”
Trump ended that tweet with the warning: “Trouble ahead!”
