Those are the words of our president, Donald the Orange, predicted this very thing in February of 2020…
Since then we have 1.1+ million cases…..and 67,000+ dead….
I would say that the prediction was manure (as most everything coming from his mouth)…..
President Donald Trump said on Tuesday there were “very good experts” who predicted that the coronavirus outbreak “would never affect the United States.”
He made the remark during a White House speech to small-business owners in response to CNN’s Jim Acosta, who asked Trump about the number of confirmed cases in the US passing the 1 million mark. Acosta pointed to Trump’s prediction in February that the number of US cases would go down to zero.
“How did we get from your prediction of zero to 1 million?” Acosta asked.
Not to worry that is NOT the only LIE Trump has told……
Almost eight weeks ago, President Trump appeared at the CDC and announced, “Anyone who wants a test can get a test.” That was approximately as correct as promising anybody who wants a private jet can one. Rather than own up to the lie, or even to quietly pull back to a more realistic schedule of promises, Trump has continued telling wild lies about testing availability.
Yesterday, a reporter asked the president if and when the country could reach the benchmark of 5 million coronavirus tests per day recommended by some public-health experts. “Well, it will increase it, and it’ll increase it by much more than that in the very near future,” he replied, before rambling on semi-coherently. The reporter followed up, “Sorry, are you saying you’re confident you can surpass 5 million tests per day?” Trump responded in the affirmative:
Everything Trump is doing is trying to reverse this trend in the economy……
The United States’ gross domestic product (GDP) shrank at an annual rate of 4.8% during the first quarter of 2020, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday.
The contraction is the first in six years, and the worst since the Great Recession, which ended in 2009.
The new number is the result of businesses across the nation closing down temporarily or permanently, laying off or furloughing tens of millions of workers, and facing general economic uncertainty as the coronavirus pandemic continues to bulldoze the American economy.
All this has NOTHING to do with the welfare of the American people but everything to do with Donald the Orange’s chances for re-election.
Since the president will not do it…I will help my readers how to fight this pandemic…..
Accessible and universal testing and free treatment for all infected: The absence of a coordinated system to test those who may have the disease makes any rational response impossible. It is essential that testing be made available immediately throughout the United States and the entire world.
The treatment of all those infected is an urgent necessity not only for the ill, but also to stop the spread of the disease. Care must be given at no cost, regardless of insurance coverage or income.
An emergency program to expand health care infrastructure: The overwhelming of hospitals not only leads to a sharp increase in the death toll from the coronavirus, as has happened in Italy, it also means that those suffering from other diseases and injuries are unable to receive care. The lack of adequate equipment and health care infrastructure means that doctors are already being forced to choose who among their patients will live and who will die.
