The Washington Post published a video of President Donald Trump downplaying and outright lying about the coronavirus, the number of victims and how the deadly contagion would magically “disappear.”
Trump’s false claims began in January when he failed to take action:
Jan. 22: “We have it totally under control.”
Jan. 24: “It will all work out well.”
Jan. 29: “Just received a briefing on the Coronavirus in China from all of our GREAT agencies, who are also working closely with China. We will continue to monitor the ongoing developments. We have the best experts anywhere in the world, and they are on top of it 24/7!”
Jan. 30: “We think we have it very well under control. We have very little problem in this country at this moment — five. And those people are all recuperating successfully. But we’re working very closely with China and other countries, and we think it’s going to have a very good ending for it. So that I can assure you.”
