President Donald Trump ripped the "lamestream media" Monday morning and then pivoted by saying there is "light at the end of the tunnel" regarding the coronavirus crisis.

Trump mentioned Fox News commentator Gayle Trotter in two tweets aimed at the "establishment media."

"To this day the establishment media have not admitted that they were wrong and the President was right," Trump tweeted, directly quoting Trotter.

He also wrote a response to one of Trotter's tweets: "Thank you Gayle. I only wish the public could fully understand how corrupt & dishonest so much of our Lamestream Media is. My Press Conferences are vital. They are reaching millions of people that are not being told the truth, & haven't been for years (Witch-Hunts, Fake News)!"

The president followed this with a pair of tweets that tried to put a positive spin on the COVID-19 pandemic, which is expected to worsen this week.

"USA STRONG!" Trump wrote.

He added, "LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!"

During a White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing Sunday evening, Trump conceded that the coming weeks will be difficult but that there could be an end to the pandemic in sight.
