The government in Wuhan did the same thing when the coronavirus outbreak. If you want everything goes to be uncontrollable you can insist it In summary.. Was he coughing and sniffing as he said it? His capacity for self- delusion and delusion of others is so self- evident.....! StableGenius Trump needs to remember that the people who make his junk food mostly don't have health insurance so if they get infected, they are likely to work sick.

But wee are told it is by our NHS.....? So is trump wrong Everything he says and does is ‘rambling’ And said!!! We are totallllly prepared !!!! He makes my brain hurt. I'm watching. The President wasn't-isn't rambling. I watched the conference, he really did not downplay the risk, he said that for now or remains low, but in the event that it grows, we are ready ..

We are so effed.

TrumpDerangementSyndrome has become a wonderful spectator sport! 🤣 - ...and a fantastic business tool for MSM to generate Clickbait. - They cast out their nets and we laugh at what they catch! So does the CDC and Johns Hopkins. Does he hold any other kind of press conference? You're right we need to close the borders and restrict air travel

The Trump administration cut funding for the US Center for Disease Control by 9%. This month he proposed slashing it a further 16%. The worst-hit? Pandemic preparation. Trump shut down the US Complex Crises Fund & Pandemic and global health effort. And fired everyone. Media is telling us Coronavirus is the apocalypse. Trump says it isn't. I know who I believe, and its not the fakenewsmedia.

You could follow that mumbled much of crazy? He’s lying. They are woefully ill-equipped. i started following you because of unbiased news. Instead you are more bias than CNN ... because realDonaldTrump is a MORON!

Why Trump is secretly terrified of coronavirusThe markets he was going to depend on are slumping, and even he's trying his best to deny that economic hit through his Twitter account and spokespeople, numbers don't lie Ahahah what's that, you're a liar 🤣🤣🤣 Trump COVID19 CoronavirusOutbreak HealthCareForAll No ClickBait in sight.

So basically it’s high if you were looking for reassurance he's the last person on Earth you'd look to. So...if he catches it, he won't do much about it?
