Trump Lies About Being Prepared for Coronavirus, Blames Media and China

President Donald Trump falsely claimed during a press conference that his administration was prepared for the the nationwide outbreak of the deadly coronavirus.

First, Trump claimed pretended nobody knew about the COVID-19 virus: “It could have been stopped pretty easily if everybody had known.”

However, NBC News reporter Kristen Welker debunked that lie: “You said you did know.”

Trump then blamed China: “It could have been stopped in its tracks. Unfortunately, [China] didn’t decide to make it public.”

Welker fired back: “You did say a few days ago that you did have a sense that this was a pandemic. So why was the United States not prepared with more tests?”

Trump lied again and blamed the media: “We were very prepared. The only thing we weren’t prepared for was the media. The media has not treated it fairly.”
