Trump responds to Bush's call for bipartisan unity with tweets attacking his enemies - 2020-05-03
Amid rising confirmed coronavirus case counts, and a death toll that has begun to plateau, President Donald Trump spent much of Sunday lashing out at politicians, attacking the media, and bragging about his poll numbers. He also seemed to suggest Covid-19 is a cosmic or biblical force — and one that has already been stopped.
Sunday morning, the president panned former President George W. Bush's recent call for bipartisan unity in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, arguing his predecessor should have spoken up on his behalf during Trump's impeachment process.
"Let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this shared threat," Bush said Saturday in a video message to the public. "In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants."
