The MSM (and its many tentacles) has been lying about President Trump calling the new coronavirus a hoax - when it's obvious from his comments that he was referring to media criticism of his administration's response to the disease.

"They tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia," Trump told a Charleston, SC crowd as he relayed a discussion with an adviser.

"They tried the impeachment hoax. They tried anything, they tried it over and over since he got in.... and this is their new hoax," Trump said.
