Donald Trump has said Americans should not be worried about the "Caronavirus" and accused people reporting on the potential pandemic of spreading "fake news".
Mr Trump has spent the last couple of days talking down the risk of the coronavirus in the US.
But in a bizzare rant Mr Trump took aim at reporting which disagrees with his sunny outlook.
And managed to misspell the name of it while he was at it.
He tweeted: "Low Ratings Fake News MSDNC (Comcast) & @CNN are doing everything possible to make the Caronavirus look as bad as possible, including panicking markets, if possible.
"Likewise their incompetent Do Nothing Democrat comrades are all talk, no action. USA in great shape!"
He also announced he would be holding a press conference on the issue on Wednesday evening.
It comes after a speech given by the President on Tuesday, which saw him accused of not grasping the scale of the problems caused by the virus.
In that news conference in India on Tuesday, Mr Trump said: "I think that's a problem that's going to go away."
Speaking about American authorities response to the virus Mr Trump insisted that "they have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we're very close to a vaccine."
"I think that's a problem that's going to go away," Trump said of the virus
No country is believed to be close to developing a vaccine.
Mr Trump also claimed that all the US coronavirus patients "are getting better … they're all getting better."
That followed a tweet that read: "The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all the relevant countries. CDC & World Health have been working hard and very smart. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!"
