PRESIDENT Donald Trump called CNN "dumb bast**ds" during his campaign rally in Arizona on Monday.
Trump claimed the news network is only covering the coronavirus pandemic to try to prevent Americans from voting in the election.

"You turn on CNN that's all they cover," Trump said. "Covid, Covid pandemic, Covid."
"They're trying to talk everybody out of voting. They're not buying it, CNN, you dumb bast**rds."
Trump went on to say that "all" CNN host Chris Cuomo, who was diagnosed with coronavirus earlier this year, talks about is Covid.
"I'm not sure he had it," the president alleged. "Only time his ratings were up was when he had Covid."
Trump explained to the crowd of his supporters that he was also diagnosed with Covid.
"Well I had it and they say, 'You're not gonna catch it again,' and that's OK with me."
The president claimed CNN employees "were happy when they heard" he had the deadly virus.
He said commentators said that Trump "looks better now than he did before" – adding to the crowd he wasn't sure if it was a compliment.
Trump went on to say he's planning to make regeneron – the drug that he claims cured his coronavirus – "available for everybody for free."
In a recent Fox News interview, Trump said that he wanted everyone to get Regeneron for free.
"I took a certain medicine that was very miraculous to me – and I really don't think it's just in the head," he explained.
"I just felt very good," Trump said of the medicine. "You would have sort of a sore throat, but I felt really very good after taking this for a period of time.
“It’s a transfusion, not a shot. I’d like to send it to everybody. We're going to send it to everybody free of charge."
Trump told Rush Limbaugh during his radio show weeks ago that he could have become really sick and might not have recovered from coronavirus without experimental drugs.
“I was asking the doctors today … and I said, ‘How bad was I?’ They said: ‘You could have been very bad. You were going into a very bad phase,'" Trump said.
After contracting the virus, Trump said he was “not in the greatest of shape" and said he “might not have recovered at all” without treatment with experimental drugs.
“It was primarily this one drug," Trump said of Regeneron. "It just wiped out the virus. It wiped it out.”
Trump said on Sunday that if he listened to coronavirus experts telling him to lock down the country, the US would be in a "massive depression."
Dr Anthony Fauci said he was “absolutely not surprised” that Trump contracted coronavirus just over two weeks ago.

"I was worried that he was going to get sick when I saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded – no separation between people, and almost nobody wearing a mask,” Fauci told 60 Minutes in an interview that aired on Sunday.
Fauci was referencing the now-infamous White House Rose Garden event for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett that left several people, including Kellyanne Conway, Chris Christie, and several senators, among others, sick with Covid.
"When I saw that on TV, I said, 'Oh my goodness. Nothing good can come out of that, that's got to be a problem,'" he continued.
