Trump’s daily briefings score huge ratings—His coronavirus town hall ‘most watched in cable history’

It's not just daily briefings that are garnering him a steady stream of followers.

Democrats absolutely hate the idea that President Donald Trump is in front of the cameras every single day. Why? Because the American people are getting to know their president and they’re seeing that he is not this awful monster that for years the fake news media has made him out to be.

Thanks to his amazing leadership, President Trump’s approval ratings are soaring—60% of Americans approve of how he’s handling the COVID-19 crisis.

His daily briefings are a ratings bonanza, which you know is infuriating the Democrats who are just sacked on the sidelines and seething mad.

The New York Times reluctantly admitted on Wednesday that the president’s daily coronavirus updates are garnering an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, adding, “roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’”

The Times moaned, “And the numbers are continuing to rise, driven by intense concern about the virus and the housebound status of millions of Americans who are practicing social distancing. On Monday, nearly 12.2 million people watched Mr. Trump’s briefing on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, according to Nielsen — ‘Monday Night Football’ numbers. Millions more are watching on ABC, CBS, NBC and online streaming sites.” [Daily Wire]

It’s not just daily briefings that are garnering him a steady stream of followers. President Trump held a “Coronavirus town hall” where he sat down with Fox News‘ Bill Hemmer to discuss his response plan. It was the most-watched.

A virtual town hall hosted by Fox News on Tuesday set a record as the most-watched town hall in cable news history with an average of 4.4 million viewers, the network announced Wednesday.

Trump and members of the White House coronavirus task force sat in the Rose Garden for the two-hour town hall, which began at noon and was moderated by Fox’s Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer.
