Trump says White House guidelines a ‘matter of life and death’, Fauci and Birx predict at least 100,000 Americans will die, maybe as many as 240,000In an abrupt shift from his messaging last week that downplayed the impact of the novel coronavirus and urged Americans to return to work, President Donald Trump opened his daily briefing Tuesday saying the extension of the White House social distancing guidelines through April represents"a matter of life and death."

"In a few moments, Dr. Birx will explain the data that form the basis for our decision to extend the guidelines and Dr. Fauci will explain why it's absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines for the next 30 days," the president said."It's a matter of life and death, frankly."

Trump predicted as things get better,"it's going to be like a burst of light," but acknowledged the next few weeks will be"painful.""Hopefully as the experts are predicting, a lot of us are predicting having studied it so hard, going to start seeing some real light at the end of the tunnel, but this is going to be a very painful two weeks," Trump said, appearing to refer to the peak of the death toll, which some models have signaled will hit mid-April.

Trump, who grew up near Elmhurst Hospital, got quiet and solemn as he described watching doctors and nurses heading into work at the Queens hospital that has been one of the hardest hit by the coronavirus crisis.It was the most emotion Trump has shown during the daily briefings given at the White House and marked a clear change in tone.

"I watched as doctors and nurses went into a certain hospital in Elmhurst this morning. I know Elmhurst -- Queens, that’s -- I grew up right next to it. I know the hospital very well. I've been seeing it all my life, my young life," the president said. He described seeing the"scenes" of truck trailers that are being used as freezers for bodies of patients who have died from coronavirus.

"And I watched the doctors and the nurses walking into that hospital this morning. It's like military people going into battle, going into war. The bravery is incredible. And I just have to take my hat -- I would take my hat -- if I were wearing a hat, I'd rip that hat off so fast and I would say 'you people are just incredible.' They really are. They’re very brave," the president said.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House's coronavirus response coordinator, utilizing a slideshow and flanked by visual models, then explained what drove the White House’s decision to extend the guidelines.Introducing studies from the University and Washington and London Imperial College, Birx said, their models showed"what social distancing would do, what would happen if people stayed home, what would happen if people were careful every day to wash their hands and worry about touching their faces -- what an extraordinary thing this could be if every American followed these."

Birx emphasized that without mitigation efforts, between 1.5 million and 2.2 million people in the U.S. would die. Even with social distancing, models show"100 to 200,000 deaths, which is still way too much," Birx acknowledged.Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, addresses the daily coronavirus response briefing with President Donald Trump at the White House in Washington, March 31, 2020.

"There's no magic bullet, there’s no magic vaccine or therapy, it's just behaviors," Birx said."Each of our behaviors translating into something that changes the course of this viral pandemic over the next 30 days."Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and a key member of the coronavirus task force, urged Americans not to take their foot off the accelerator with regards to mitigation efforts like social distancing and staying home.

"This is tough. People are suffering, people are dying. It's inconvenient from a societal standpoint, from an economic standpoint, to go through this, but this is going to be the answer to our problems," Fauci said."The 15 days that we had of mitigation clearly have had in effect, although it's tough to quantitate it," Fauci said, urging people that it's more important than ever to keep it up rather than let their guard down."The reason we feel so strongly about the necessity of the additional 30 days is that now is the time ... not to take your foot off the accelerator ... but to just press it down on the accelerator," Fauci said.

Alex Brandon/APFauci said they have seen"inklings" of fewer cases per day in New York but said Americans should brace themselves to continue to see deaths rise because of the timeline of the virus and know that mitigation efforts are still working.

"So what we are going to see, and that's why we have to brace ourselves, in the next several days to a week or so, we're going to continue to see things go up. We cannot be discouraged by that because the mitigation is actually working and will work," he said.

Asked if Americans should be prepared for 100,000 Americans to die from COVID-19, Fauci said point-blank,"The answer is yes.""As sobering a number as that is, we should be prepared for it," Fauci continued."Is it going to be that much? I hope not. And I think the more we push on the mitigation the less likelihood it would be that number -- but being realistic we need to prepare ourselves that that is a possibility that that is what we will see."

"We gotta brace ourselves: in the next several days to a week or so, we're going to continue to see things go up. We cannot be discouraged by that.

Mandel Ngan/AFP via Getty ImagesTrump said it was"very sobering" to see that 100,000 was the predicted minimum death toll, but said that it is still"a very low number.""A hundred thousand is, according to modeling, a very low number. I asked this a while ago, they said, ‘it's unlikely you will be able to attain that’ -- I think we are doing better than that," the president said, emphasizing that 2.2 million people could’ve died if the U.S. did"ride it out" without mitigation efforts.

On wearing masks, Trump said,"if people want to do it, there's certainly no harm to it," before suggesting people"use a scarf" so that medical masks can go to hospitals.Trump also said the federal government is distributing 10,000 ventilators, key life saving devices in the fight against coronavirus that many states have said they need, while acknowledging that the"surge is coming."

"We have almost 10,000 ventilators that we have ready to go. We have to hold them back because the surge is coming and it's coming pretty strong," Trump said, adding that ventilators are going to Michigan, Louisiana, New York and New Jersey.

Patients who are hardest hit by coronavirus end up in Intensive Care Units on ventilators to allow them to breathe, and states with hot spots have warned that if they don't have enough, they risk facing a situation where they have to choose who lives and who dies.

Alex Brandon/AP, FILEFauci says masks for everyone "under very active consideration"Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the top health expert on the coronavirus task force, says the recommendation of masks for all Americans is"under very active consideration."

Fauci told CNN this morning that the issue of facial coverings will be discussed at the task force meeting"today" but that the determination could only come"when we have enough" for health care workers."The idea of getting a much more broad community-wide use of masks outside of the health care setting is under very active discussion at the task force. The CDC group is looking at that very carefully," Fauci said."The thing that has inhibited that a bit is to make sure we don't take away the supply of masks from the health care workers who need them."

MORE: Tensions with Trump: Dr. Anthony Fauci on telling the truth"But when we get in a situation where we have enough masks, I believe there will be some very serious consideration about more broadening this recommendation of using masks. We're not there yet, but I think we're close to coming to some determination," Fauci added.

"If, in fact, a person who may or may not be infected wants to prevent infecting somebody else, one of the best ways to do that is with a mask, so perhaps that's the best way to go," Fauci told CNN."That's under very active consideration. We'll be discussing it today, this afternoon, at the task force meeting."

His comments followreportingin the Washington Post that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is considering recommending general public wear face coverings for all Americans in public, after initially telling Americans they're only recommended for health care workers.

"We haven't discussed it to that extent, but it's certainly something we could discuss," Trump said."We’re not going to be wearing masks forever, but it could be for a short period of time after we get back into gear."Fauci also said the data is starting to show"glimmers" that social distancing is taking an effect.

"If you look now, we are starting to see glimmers that that is actually having some dampening effect," he said of mitigation efforts."We hope, and I believe it will happen, that we may start seeing a turnaround, but we haven't seen it yet."

Tom Brenner/Reuters, FILEMORE: Coronavirus government response updates: Trump highlights companies making needed equipmentTom Inglesby, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, called on the CDC Sunday to make the recommendation for mask use widespread in an effort to slow the spread.

"It's critical that all medical masks (N95, surgical, procedural) be given to health care workers and emergency personnel," Inglesby said in a Twitter thread."But members of the general public should wear non-medical fabric face masks when going out in public in one additional societal effort to slow the spread of the virus down."

He pointed to South Korea, China and other countries where outbreaks appear managed and face masks are widely used in public.While Inglesby also suggested people might make their own masks at home using washable materials, other officials have cautioned for weeks that if a mask isn't fitted correctly, it won't be effective.

Pelosi previews 4th COVID-19 package with focus on infrastructure, Trump weighs in on TwitterHouse Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday that the priorities for the next COVID-19 relief package should include more protections for front line health care workers, with an added infrastructure element to boost the nation’s water systems and broadband capabilities.

"We have agreed in our negotiations that everything that we're doing is specific to the coronavirus challenge," Pelosi said on MSNBC's"Morning Joe.""And that would be, infrastructure for water systems are so essential. Broadband, because so many people are relying on telecommunication and social media and the rest. But I do think that we've acted in bipartisan ways every step of the way, and we will continue to do so. We may have our differences but we have to find our common ground," she added.

Pelosi, who last week instructed her committees to begin coming up with proposals for the next relief bill, said on Monday that it is likely the next bill won’t get a vote until mid to late April, as the House is not scheduled to return until at least April 20th, and she has ruled of the possibility of remote voting.

"I would not suspect that we would have any bipartisan legislation before we return after Easter and Passover. But we’re getting ready -- and in some cases we are ready," Pelosi said on a call with reporters.MORE: Who will get what and when from the $2 trillion relief package

The president and the speaker haven’t spoken since October.Trump later weighed in from the White House on"phase four," tweeting that"this is the time" for Congress to pass an infrastructure bill since interest rates are low.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, meanwhile, signaled he's not ready to begin talks on a fourth relief package.

"I think we need to wait a few days here, a few weeks, and see how things are working out," McConnell said this morning on"The Hugh Hewitt Show.""I’m not going to allow this to be an opportunity for the Democrats to achieve unrelated policy items that they would not otherwise be able to pass," he added.

Pompeo appears to drop the term "Wuhan virus," speaks broadly of disinformation campaigns on COVID-19During a briefing at the State Department, a now weekly occurrence with fewer reporters allowed in the room amid social distancing guidelines, Secretary of State Pompeo did not use the term"Wuhan virus" as he consistently has for a month now, signaling a slight softening of position towards China.

When asked about disinformation from other countries, Pompeo did not call out China but instead talked broadly about the need to trust data from all countries."This is the reason disinformation is dangerous. It's not because it's bad politics, it's because it puts lives at risk if we don't have confidence in the information that's coming from every country. So I would urge every nation: Do you best to collect the data and do your best to share that information," he said.

SLIDESHOW: Coronavirus outbreak sparks global health emergencyAsked later whether the U.S. trusts the data coming from China, Pompeo deflected the question to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the department of Health and Human Services -- even after openly questioning their data last week.

When President Trump was questioned about China and other countries engaging in disinformation campaigns on Fox News Channel’s"Fox and Friends" Monday, he said,"They do it, we do it.""We call them different things and I make statements that are very strong against China, including the Chinese Virus," Trump said, after vowing last week to stop using the term denounced by the World Health Organization."Every country does it, but they build it up, and we handle that, and they probably handle it but countries do that."

Semonite said they're looking at hotels and dormitories as well as large, open spaces like convention centers, as potential sites. Some will house COVID-19 patients and some that will treat all other patients."Our thought was to make it extremely simple," he added."Find an existing facility that already has all the codes, has heat, has water, has I.T., has parking lots, and then just put in whatever we can like a hospital inside of that."

The Army Corps of Engineers is working in lockstep with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services, as well as local governments, Semonite said.What to know about coronavirus:

The plus for them is they get tested every day. Nice to have advanced warning. Who’s lackadaisical leadership led to this? Hint: he’s an orange troll 🙄🙄🙄 That’s a lot of Benghazis. Am I right MAGA? agreed. just like the flu over the course of a year or more. so let's get back to work and stoptheshutdown

That’s unfair and BS that we have to deal with this! All we here every damn is numbers rising of ppl dying fuck that! monicasloves Anyone bother doing the math here? At a 2% fatality rate that's 5,000,000 cases in the US. LET THAT SINK IN We should be prepared for mass poverty, homelessness, hunger, divorce, murder and theft. Fuck the virus, back to normal now. This is bullshit.

Now that we know more than we know that shouldn't be happening. I really want to cheat the covid-19 virus. I see a new linup of ' Trump Caskets ' hitting the markets in a week . Covid situation getting so bad that Trump is forced to try telling the truth. (no, that wasn't an Onion headline) why the fuck is 'dr.' birx there? all she's good for is miming emotional responses and spouting out bullshit.

Maybe this guy doesn't have common sense So right now the US has about 4400 deaths and it’s expected to go to over 100,000 just this month? Omg Americans are NOT PREPARED but the president made it happen. We've been warning you for weeks. Now on a per capita basis we have well overtaken China. Your good at those, schmock!

🦠 BREAKING NEWS ONLY FROM DEXTER, you want a story? coronavirus Covid19 was Wuhan400 existed 16 years ago, was written about and forgotten... We may be experiencing Wuhan-5000... here’s the proof... write something now!!! Dexter19 🦠 Who’s going to jail for this crime? There are many video evidence of the president downplaying the Coronavirus when it was started. Big mouth often ruin a person’s integrity. But he’s still lying.

I don't know if 100,000 people are going to die from COVID-19 when we're only at 4,000 now That doesn't really make sense news from ground ZERO TrumpFailedAmerica his lies will kill more of US than most of our wars. TrumpIsKillingUs How much do you Hate Trump and Americans and People who voted for Trump and Hope they would DIE, I have Prayed that GOD would GLORIFY HIMSELF and TRUMP through THIS!!!!

That’s was the stupidest question & answer!! Be prepared. Doesn’t mean it would get that high. We do need to investigate in the reporting of deaths however. Someone can die from cancer and then test positive for the virus as an asymptomatic carrier and the hospital will report it. Fuck his tone he has killed us all and he is now in panic mode

Doesn’t mean your a wartime president but still means you’re impeached DonTheCon No matter how empathetic he may seem, the man is a bullshit artist! What’s with the distracting captions? It’s annoying and it is not matching the video, Anti-American Broadcasting Company. Can’t we send “Dear Leader” to Ground Zero, like Dubya did after 9/11 ? Trump could mop floors in NY hospitals as a publicity stunt.

He doesn’t look concerned or empathetic. Bad acting. What lack of real support when up against it. Sole Survivor inFLUenced Stay safe everyone! But what he really thinks and feels comes when he’s not looking down at a piece of paper someone in his campaign has written this is the same clown that accused nurses of stealing masks etc.We dont need his Fake ass praise, he just cant sell his bullshit to his cult anymore,and the clowns standing behind him cant excuse him anymore, now it's the IMPEACHMENT that is being blamed

Its a HOAX - January Its a HOAX - February Its a HOAX - March April - cruel weeks to come, very very painful Who could have known All of a sudden he cares? Just wait. Tomorrow he will be insulting the press and calling it the Chinese virus. He is unfit and should have been removed. Should have never been elected.

Turn down the audio and watch the body language of a person reading a script he didn’t write. He needs America to forget he downplayed coronavirus for two months. What an ass. He says if we lose up to 200,000 people we’re doing a good job. 1) he could have prevented it from getting anywhere near that many deaths (see South Korea) 2) if there are fewer deaths, he’ll take credit for a great job 3) he sees the dead as statistics, not people

He should have been doing this all along. He should have shut the country down. God bless USA. Hats off to doctors and all the health workers. And then blocks Obamacare to uninsured Americans. During a pandemic! Custer sending his troops into the Little Big Horn. Difference - Custer was at least in the fight.

Well, it sounds like he has sold all of his shares by now So now he knows how ppe works? And what was he doing outside the hospital where he watched ppl go in? He still has to lie in some capacity he cant help it! He read what his handlers wrote. Nothing more...nothing less. The change does not absolve him.

Believe me me he is having a hard time being truthful. If you notice his heavy sighing is because someone told him to behave at the podium. Really ? He even using this for ratings TrumpIsACompleteFailure Maybe if he wouldn’t have called a hoax, we c have saved many lives, but he was to busy playing golf and holding is rallies

Too bad that you were not prepared and denied the facts for weeks Mr. Trump. These rough weeks ahead are partly on you as others pay for your poor decisions. Please think about that. The bullshit from this megalomaniac never stops! Wth is happening in NYC?! “Change of tone”......he’s reading it, someone wrote it for him. When he speaks for himself, I guarantee you there is no “change of tone.” Don’t fall for it.

Guess ABC has a problem with this too ..... useless liberal democratic channel He called it a hoax and then held a rally. Vote him out. Please stop covering his rallies/ daily briefing AKA: His medical advisors insisted and begged he acknowledge that this is going to go on for a while... and someone on his staff told him that it might not be a good idea to, uh... you know... attack doctors and nurses or suggest that they’re stealing PPE right now.

Let me make this clear,Trump was told to come out and sound sincere, because there is no way in Heaven a man that evil, A liar and deceived has had a change of heart.. It is a tool used to play on your intelligence, called politico Gain ! Don’t be fooled people Trump lies; people died Do not fall for it American, this is his LATEST CON. He is unfit, amoral, narcissistic, liar and dangerous. He needs to be removed from office!!

“Change of tone” After 2 months of saying it was like the flu, it was under control, our 15 cases would soon be 0. Still has not put a national stay at home order in effect, so FL gov is not either, while the virus burns through his state like dry tinder. Stop with this tone BS! OK so now you’re going to do the he sounds so presidential BS. March 9th he was saying it was going to be like the flu and he was off golfing at Mar a Lago the weekend before...so no he doesn’t get a do over for this.

He’s praising the medical professionals now? After accusing them of being thieves?! He must think we have the same shot term memory loss he does. Yes and like with Bush and Congress in the gulf war, he and the GOP sent us into battle without the needed equipment to fight it. He made 50% of this Country cynics and Trump critics with all of the lies and divisive rhetoric. It’ll take more then one prepared speech to change my thinking about him.

He’s a NUTCASE So it’s not a left driven hoax after all? How embarrassing for him and this country. NewsRadio930 “An abrupt change”.....ladies and gentlemen, journalism at its yellowest. Trump you can go to hospital,see the sickness people,give more confidence Stop trying to steer stories just let the man’s words speak for himself. This is why everyone thinks the press in American is broken; activist reporting.

He didn't warn nor did he praise. He read a script FFS. He can't string a sentence together without going off the rails. He can only come across as even mildly sensible because someone else wrote the words. It's been 3 years yet people still think he'll change and become human. Give it a minute, he’ll switch back.

This is changing daily people, you had better stop trying to divide and join in And yet, every American that's not on Twitter (85%) would not know that because our pravda media decided they shouldn't. Virus is bad. Y'all are bad. God help us! Telling Americans that death is coming and he’ll choose, not the medical community, where ventilators go....sounds like a death panel to me.

calciatore Nah, it'll all be over by Easter. Let's get rolling 'em eggs. HE HAS BEEN SO CRUDE...RUDE..GROSS...CALLED SO MAY PEOPLE NAMES...SPREAD PROPAGANDA AND LIED EVERYDAY HE HAS BEEN OFFICE...SO NOW WHEN HE IS TRYING TO BE SINCERE HE MAKES ME WANT TO PUKE EVEN MORE. CANNOT BELIEVE HIM. HE WILL STAB US IN THE BACK ANYTIME

So the covid19 flying around in the air?😁😁 I know he didnt mean its. Its personification and hyperbolic in english languange😁 Why won’t he give them the equipment they ask for? Idiot. Wasted valuable time doing absolutely nothing. ...wow, can’t lie your way out of this one.. Somebody had had a word. Do not try to normalize this IDIOT in the White House, he doesnt deserve it.

Oh yeah remember it’s April Fools day! He heard MSNBC & CNN were not airing his opening remarks so head 😔 Not to mention, he finally realized he couldn’t hide those charts from the public. He is defeated! He may have also realized when he visited the hospital, and saw body bags, that he had caused all the death!

He’s being this way now only because of the coverage Gov Cuomo is getting. Cuomo’s press conference shows what a leader looks like. He is showing the world what a chump trump truly is. And y’all are fools if y’all fall for trumps con job! Failure if I followed ABC news i would unfollow but I never did follow and way to fall for trump bull 2016 taught you nothing huh

Trump The DEVIL !! Arrogance gets you no where. Let's start referring to this as the Trump Genocide. He gets credit for the deaths, the cruelty, and the systemic withholding of supplies to slow the virus down. Yeah, Trump Genocide is a good description of his reign. Pass it on. Trump read to us that someone writing his speech thought we should be prepared...we have k own this all along-he is continuing to look at how to make a buck...0% interest loans to fix infrastructure...while we die

What a fool The best part is the hat part, when he realizes he's not wearing one. It's an expression Donnie! 🤣 He caused the “hard days ahead” ... must be nice to be rich & orange 🙄🙄🙄 fakeEmpathy What BS! He's been pretty damn consistent. So, they go in to battle and then steal all the masks for themselves? Mmk.

Because the SOME American People Don't Listen !! N Keep Staying Outside N Going Around others !! This is a serious Disease !! And LIKE you ALL you NEED to Show Support BEHIND. the President !! ENOUGH of Cutting OFF thePress Conference!! ALOT of INFORMATION You MISS thanks Fox Maybe if he had this tone from the start so many people would have just stayed the fuck home from the start...

So much for the Democratic Hoax. There are no words for how much he needs to be choking on his lies from just days ago..nothing he does from this second forward will make up for his utter hypocrisy Fuck this lying piece of shit! Don’t normalize him. 🙄 Sounds like the same tone to me. He cares about the American people.

Waffle waffle waffle waffle waffle Too little too late, asshat. Should have done this a month ago. Not true President Trump military workers going into war are better equipped than our medical personnel He’ll pivot in 48hrs. presidentflipflop Wow what took him so long oh maybe his nasty tweets Awesome! Where was this weeks ago? And why is FEMA intercepting our orders?

I don't care what this asshat says anymore. I hate him. He needs to go. God bless the doctors, nurses, paramedics, truck drivers, police officers, sanitation workers and those struggling with the virus and God bless our President who is in the midst of it all; uniting our country during this war. We’ll get through this. 🇺🇸🇺🇸

He got caught! January was the time to act, he didn’t! Huh? 'Abrupt'? Who writes these stupid headlines? dramaqueen JUST STOP IT! Anyone can read from a script.... Later, he’s relishing his ratings and saying people can’t get enough..he’s lying about testing,ventilators, the flu... he’s incapable of caring about anything but himself....JUST STOP

The president has to stop listening to the CDC who's always projection have been inaccurate in the past and exaggerated this sounds like more of this chicken little crap He called us thieves previously. Why isn’t ABC running the President’s task force daily briefings? I learn such critical information watching it on cable news!!! ABCDoesn’tCare BoycottABC

I'm fed up hearing about Corona Virus !!! Enough!!! Enough!!! Stop with the hysteria.... daily briefings,.....such & such got the virus, ......such & such died You dont do this.... with the 40 thousand plus who die of the Flu every year Stop the INSANITY !!!! Go to work ! U mean unlike Pelosi, DeBlasio & a whole host of Dems. In many cities across this nation. Who were telling people to continue to go to Chinese restaurants. And ride the subways ? U calling them out for any change of tone in their statements lately ? No because they're Democrats !

He screwed up big time and now wanted to be truthful? Lmao! Can we get this corn head off the channels? Who is this guy? You could have/should have led with the fact Trump has 2,000 ventilators that he's not sending out cuz he doesn't believe the governors who are pleading for them. But yeah, normalize the fckr again while his actions are killing people.

“Hard days lie ahead.” And Trump knows all about lies . So now he doesn’t think they’re fkn stealing masks anymore He’s like that ex that keep lying until you show him evidence and he’s like “Oh yea, my bad.”. Montículo humeante de mierda caliente. 😷😷😷😷 Dr Brix & Fauci both stated their estimate of this virus has changed greatly -enough of this elitist armchair self righteousness & backhanded compliments - let’s get on board with the President & the renowned team “he” has assembled or get out of the way

On script for 50 seconds, then fell off the tracks. Good pitch Jared And i thought it was a hoax!!! Moron! But again didn’t he adamantly state Covid19 is a HOAX AND A WITCH-HUNT the democrats devised to destroy him right? 🤔 So the healthcare workers in NY aren’t stealing/selling supplies? Stop falling for this shit. He only cares about winning the election and keeping himself out of prison.

ABC hates President and always spinning hate and division against him. Fake news ABC How would POTUS even know what the term 'hard days that lie ahead.' Utterly absurd. I love how he's wearing his mask/helmet Yeah, praising the health care workers while saying they don't need more medical equipment for their patients and that the places they work are 'hoarding' supplies. Sounds like a real stand up guy...

failed sewing class. great masks! 👎🏿 What would be helpful is if all the media stopped televising Trump’s propaganda sessions and just reported on facts of what is happening. You can interview Fauci and Birx separately. The Q&A is totally worthless- he just lies. Please readjust! If the Covidiot had taken decisive action early in as recommended this could have been avoided .... 👎👎👎

Melania....must have given him a “BeBest encouragement speech”...my god a 5 year old could read this speech better then him. Hell this is way beyond “Home Schooling education”...WTF .. somebody anyone just cut him off...NOW I am embarrassed that this moron represents this great nation with his pathological lies and hypocrisy.

AND IT'S ALL DOWN TO YOU!!! YOU ARE TO BLAME!! Omg what did they showed him? If he saw the reports on January about the pandemic and did nothing what is new that made him scared remember when you vot in November folks.. he said this virus was a DEMOCRATIC HOAX!!!!!!!!!! NOW 1000'S ARE DEAD BECAUSE OF THIS VIRUS... HES A MURDERER

Why have the negative subtitles in this video? Let people watch it for themselves and form their own opinion instead of pushing your propaganda driven fake news! This is different from Trump.He is actually scared. Oh yeah!! He saw the polls. Dah, welcome to the American people's world. Again the American people are losing due to your presidency.

Too little too late. Screw him. Always ready to switch... Bipolar disorder at it's finest. Then Equipt them!!!!! Bring them Home Alive!!!!! So whatever happened to waiting until April when the weather gets warmer and it’ll go away? realDonaldTrump still has no clue how to govern people or run a country. He’s just now realizing everyone that knows more than him are saying the same thing.

Omg I hate him so much. How would Private Bones Spurs know how it feels to be going into battle?

How coronavirus blew up the plan to take down TrumpDonald Trump’s reelection is likely to rise or fall on his handling of the pandemic. And there isn’t much Democrats can do about it. Anti-trump, patriotic Americans working to elect JoeBiden should be easily able to come up with at least 100 blistering campaign ads against the shocking horror that is donald trump. He shouldn't get reelected he's going to go down in history as the worst president this country has ever had all he does is lie and blame others when is his responsibility to lade he doesn't know what that means worst president ever in history of The United States BAD PRESIDENT

Trump Condemns New York for Planning Ahead on CoronavirusHere's one possible interpretation of Trump's remarks: The man genuinely cannot comprehend the concept of planning for the future. EricLevitz writes EricLevitz Look at the pathetic, desperate media still pushing out anti-Trump propaganda while hiding actual news. Like the potential fertility risks associated with this coronavirus. Let your assumptions and opinions at least be relevant and helpful. JournalismIsDead EricLevitz Wasn't it NY mayor de Blasio that encouraged its citizens to ignore warning of COVID and to carry on life like normal, up until it became an outbreak epicenter? But yeah, it's Trump's fault and no actually NY is planning way ahead. lol.. EricLevitz Idk who’s crazier: him or his enablers
