President Donald Trump has expressed growing frustration with his daily coronavirus-related press conferences, calling them "not worth the time and effort" Saturday.

The sentiment, coming days after an erratic briefing at which Trump incorrectly suggested that injecting cleaning products could help kill off the coronavirus that causes Covid-19, has been echoed by some Republican allies, who reportedly worry that the conferences hurt the party as a whole.

On Saturday evening, Trump lashed out in a tweet about how the media has responded to his press conferences, calling reporters "hostile," while suggesting he has helped network news receive high ratings during the Covid-19 pandemic.
