Lest we forget – trump’s comments on Coronavirus
As the presidential election draws nearer, it is very VERY important not to forget how trump mishandled the Novel Coronavirus (aka COVID-19). Here is a short video of all he has said about the virus starting on January 22, 2020 – that is was a hoax, will go away when it warms up in April (that one still floors me… that’s like an old wives tale – there’s no scientific proof to that for any flu or cold).
Enjoy, or weep. Not sure which to do here.
Here is a transcript of this video.
1/22 We have it totally under control.
1/30 It’s one person coming in from China. We think we have it very well under control.
2/2 We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.
2/10 You know, in April, supposedly it dies with the hotter weather.
2/14 When it gets warm, historically, that has been able to kill the virus.
2/25 People are getting better, they’re all getting better.
2/27 And the 15 within a couple of days is gonna be down to close to zero.
2/28 It’s going to disappear, one day, it’s like a miracle. It will disappear and you’ll be fine.
3/2 They’re gonna have vaccines I think relatively soon
3/3 Not only the vaccines, but the therapies. Therapies is sort of another word for cure.
3/4 You’re talking about very small numbers in the United States.
3/6 Our numbers are lower than just about anybody.
3/10 It’s really working out, and a lot of good things are gonna happen.
3/11 And we are responding with great speed and professionalism.
3/12 It’s gonna go away.
3/13 No, I don’t take responsibility at all.
3/15 We’re all gonna all be great, we’re gonna be so good.
3/16 This came up, we came up so suddenly.
3/17 This is a pandemic. I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic, all you had to do was look at other countries.
2/28 at one of his rallies.
The Coronavirus, you know that right? And this is their new hoax [Democrats, Nevertrumpers, fake news, CNN, etc]. We are 15 in this massive country. And because of the fact that we went early, we went early. We could had a lot more than that. We’re doing great, our country is doing so great.
You’ll forgive me if I don’t listen to this buffoon again. A single still photo of him evokes revulsion, and I change the channel or turn the tv off when he comes on because you can’t believe anything he says.
Not a problem. I have a hard time listening to his voice, too. But reading through his statements is really very sad.
Thank you for listing the comments. It’s easy to see how he progressed from it’s a hoax to I always knew it was a pandemic. I’m going to keep this for reference.
Please do. Now he is saying China should have told us sooner. Like that would have mattered. He thought it was a hoax so he would have just been able to declare it a hoax sooner.
