Trump’s ‘Level of Cruelty … Infects the Population,’ James Murdoch Says
James Murdoch, son of Fox Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch, calls President Donald Trump's leadership "madness", "calluses" and "cruelty".
Trump admittedly downplayed the severity of the coronavirus, which killed 214,000 Americans and hundreds more died every day. Despite contracting the virus and being hospitalized for it, Trump continues to lower his gravity, a fact Murdoch is appalled at.
"Look, you worry about this and I think we are in the middle of a public health crisis," said Murdoch Maureen Dowd of the New York Times in an interview published on Saturday. “The climate is also a public health crisis. Whatever the policy twist, when it comes to providing vital public health information, I think that's pretty bad. "

Murdoch said that while as a businessman he understands that "companies have a responsibility to their customers and their communities" and "that responsibility shouldn't be jeopardized by political scoring," he cites Trump, who has since been comparing COVID-19 to the flu first day "madness".
"I just worry that the leadership we have seems to me to be just calluses and a level of cruelty that I think is really dangerous and that then infects the population," he said of the Trump- Administration. "It is no accident that the number of hate crimes in this country has risen for the first time in a long time in the past three years."
Although his family owns hundreds of publishing and news agencies around the world, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post and Fox News, the youngest Murdoch man says he doesn't see Fox - quite a surprise when you consider that the network plays a prominent role in spreading Trump's messages.
