And, as the months trickled by…
So last year 37,000 Americans died from the usual Flu. It equates between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the market go on. At this time there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think regarding that!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
President Trump just wouldn’t affect his view on the virus and even went on to equate it to the common flu.
And, the very next day, the President was caught of “lying” to the American public concerning the free medical examination.
“When people necessitate a test, they can get a test,” he said beforehand this month. “When the specialists need a test, when they need tests for people, they can get the test. It’s gone surprisingly well.”
However, this absolutely wasn’t the case, and millions of Americans, to this day, are still trying to get examined for the virus.
This movement saved up around $50 billion in governmental funding… And declared a new screening website and more drive-by pharmaceutical tests.
It seems that now, President Trump is finally taking the pandemic threateningly.
In presser, Trump says “we have a problem that a month ago nobody ever thought about.”

In a press conference last month, Trump admitted:
“We have a difficulty that a month ago no one ever imagined.” The President has been doing some serious backtracking.

He has now been conveying a very complex message to his people…
I urge all Americans to band together and encourage your acquaintances by not keeping additional amounts of food and essentials. TOGETHER we will stay Stable and win this challenge!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)
And, like the other world rulers have all been doing, has been supporting his citizens to band together and support one another.
Trump has frequently displayed how eager he is to raise lockdowns within a matter of a few weeks…
Notwithstanding warnings from experts and doctors that if the nation returns to work, COVID-19 cases could fasten once again.
#BREAKING: President Trump continuing the social distancing guidelines to April 30th. The people will not be reopened by Easter, as he had hoped.
It appears as though this point was very relevant to the late President. Obama tweeted about the topic on Tuesday.
It appears he thinks Trump has been downplaying the outbreak. “We’ve seen all, unfortunately, the results of those who rejected warnings of an outbreak,” he wrote, without directly identifying the president.
