President Trump fired back at Democratic governors on Tuesday with a bizarre tweet about one of his "favorite" movies, Mutiny on the Bounty—a barb aimed at states on the west and east coasts of the country that have formed coalitions to decide when to remove coronavirus lockdowns.

Trump claimed during a coronavirus press briefing on Monday that it was ultimately up to the president to decide when and how to reopen states. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo subsequently likened Trump's claim of having "total" authority over states to being "a king."

On Tuesday, Trump hit back, claiming that Cuomo had been "begging for everything" from the federal government and couldn't then suddenly call for independence.
