Chuck Todd, Tom Price Clash: Why Is Trump More Devoted to Twitter Fights than Health Care?

Chuck Todd interviewed Tom Price today, and he asked the Secretary of Health and Human Services about why President Trump constantly derails conversations about policy by picking fights with the media.

On Meet the Press, Todd brought the conservative condemnation for Trump’s Twitter attacks against Mika Brzezinski last week. Todd repeatedly pressed Price when he tried to divert from the question, and Price began admonishing Todd for not asking him about the current efforts to reform health care.

This eventually caused Todd to ask: “you’re blaming me for what the President of the United States has spent his entire week focused on?” As Price continued to talk about what Americans want to see regarding health care, Todd kept on point by asking “why isn’t the president as devoted to this as you are?”

Beyond Trump’s current feud with Morning Joe, the president used many of his public statements this weekend to escalate his war with the “fake and fraudulent” political press. This back and forth hit a high note after Trump tweeted out a fan video of himself body-slamming a representation of CNN.
