In a bizarre tirade, the president bristled at a suggestion by one of the media that his power was restricted

Donald Trump has declared in a White House briefing that his "authority is total" when it comes to lockdown rules during the coronavirus pandemic, and he denied that he was weighing firing Dr Anthony Fauci, the country's foremost infectious diseases expert who sits on the coronavirus task force.
