President Donald Trump returns to the White House in Washington on Oct. 5, 2020, after testing positive for COVID-19 and spending four days at the the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. Trump berated his own cabinet on Thursday for not prosecuting or implicating his political enemies, lashing out amid a cascade of daunting poll numbers and a bout with the coronavirus that has locked him in the White House just weeks before the election.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump berated his own Cabinet on Thursday for not prosecuting or implicating his political enemies, lashing out amid a cascade of daunting poll numbers and a bout with the coronavirus that has locked him in the White House just weeks before the election.

In his first extended public comments since learning he had the virus last week, Trump balked at participating in holding the next debate with his Democratic challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, remotely for health reasons and called Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden's running mate, a "monster" and a "communist."

The president castigated his own team as well, declaring that Attorney General William Barr would go down in history "as a very sad, sad situation" if he does not indict Democrats like Biden and former President Barack Obama. He complained that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had not released Hillary Clinton's e-mails, saying, "I'm not happy about him for that reason." And he targeted Christopher Wray, the FBI director. "He's been disappointing," Trump said.
