Fact checking President Trump's comments on the coronavirus threat.

Trump accurately described the risk to Americans as low — though some health officials have issued stronger warnings about an inevitable spread.

Terms of Service "It's not so much a question of if this will happen anymore but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness," Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the head of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said during a media briefing Tuesday. Claim: A vaccine is coming in a 'fairly quick manner' "We're rapidly developing a vaccine,” Trump said. “The vaccine is coming along well, and in speaking to the doctors we think this is something that we can develop fairly rapidly.” Later, he added: “But that's a little bit like the flu. It's a little like the regular flu that we have flu shots for. And we'll essentially have a flu shot for this in a fairly quick manner.” This is a bit exaggerated. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, explained in the same news conference that a potential vaccine is in rapid development but a final product is at least a year to 18 months away — if trials that are happening now succeed. This is fast for a vaccine, but it’s not going to help anyone imminently. The president repeatedly pointed to the 15 cases of coronavirus in the U.S. There are Read more: NBC News

I just envisioned every Democrat blasting over to their computers trying to 'Fact Check' every word the POTUS said!! Just so they could deluge the comment section with their findings whether they are right or wrong!!! There goes the Fake News Mainstream Media again with the Blame Trump Game. When in reality, the Coronavirus has no political affiliation and affects all human beings. Why blame President Trump?

You are embarrassing.... can we focus on the issue and not partisan gotcha moments Wuhan virus is a BioWarfare against China -China has been eating strange critters for 5000 years, NO virus; Many nations with millions living in open sewage, NO virus -Don't worry! The Virus was developed to infect Chinese DNA

North carolina virus isn't fear anymore!! And puts VP as point person. A man who had a HUGE HIV spike in Indiana as governor of that state. No one should feel comforted thinking Pence is looking out for us. How would you even know the difference regarding the virus you know nothing about? Take a look at everyone surrounding him in that image. They all look concerned. They know he has no idea what he is doing.

I wonder when exactly tRump will demand a Nobel prize in Science? He’s put Mike Pence in charge of coronavirususa . Problem solved!

Americans Can't Figure Out What Ivanka Trump Is Doing In IndiaBesides tagging along with dad on the taxpayers' dime. Selfies? I’m so sorry this is happening to you. Do you need TDS medications? Readers can’t figure out why huff po can’t find real news

KrisKetzKMBC Go fact check Bernie..... Why don't you do the country a favor, instead of bashing Trump, try putting up a tweet with how to avoid getting a flu. And a link to the CDC site in how to stay healthy. Just a thought. Quit the hate and division. Its the flu not the Zombie apocalypse NBC and facts? MSM bullshit!

He always appears drugged now. Has anyone told you what you can do with your 'facts'? so- basically what he said was correct? Trump is lying yet again. His lies may affect the health and safety of the American people. He claims there are only 15 cases of Coronavirus in the US And “very soon“ there will be only 1. This is pure nonsense. He is more concerned about HIS stock market.

So far, US has 15 cases and UK 13, not including ships,Despite US having a far bigger population and far more Chinese residents. So far there is some reason to believe it won't be as severe as other countries.

Trump Tells Americans Not to Worry About Coronavirus as CDC Says U.S. Outbreak a CertaintyTrump says the coronavirus is just “going to go away” because China told him so—but the CDC has a much different view The United States has done a deplorable job of managing the flu every single year. Does anyone really think Trump and his anti-science cabinet will manage a deadly pandemic? Please!

NBC fact check, hmmm When do you start fact checking yourselves. That would really be a shocking lie fest Not testing anyone from other countries even though there are thousands outside of China with it and the tests we had didn’t work properly. How many died of respiratory issues the last two months were tested for the virus after the fact?

yeah trump is telling us what we already know and what we should know, because the news won't tell us the truth. He doesn't want to be the fearmonger that others are being. He never knows what the hell he’s talking about. He is like a little kid telling a tale. If the slow down continues in China then? More liberal propaganda

So everything he said was true.

Fact check: Bloomberg was misleading tonight when he claimed a 95% decline in stop and friskFact check: Michael Bloomberg was misleading by omission when he cited a 95% decline in 'stop and frisk' while he was NY mayor. Looking at his entire mayoralty, from 2002-2013, there was a 97% increase. See DemDebate fact checks: Trump couldn’t buy a better endorsement than this clown show on TV right now. 😂 That's because Guliani did such a great job. Who's team is Guliani on? Fact check Biden saying 150 million Americans died from guy violence since 2007. That's half the country!

He doesn't know shit, we get it. Can he not be president anymore? Here is a fact open boarders but we have no vetting and San Fransisco perfect storm for this virus but yeh lets bust Trumps balls. To bad FakeNews is no longer trustworthy!! Y'all should fact check in real time... Not this BS Fact !!! Court hands Trump win in sanctuary city fight, says administration can deny grant money FoxNews

He at first said it was just a 'Cold' it would pass? you better open a drugstore Fact check yourself fool ... the POTUS has the greatest resources around him regarding this coronavirus he does not need feedback from Liberal Media! I’d prefer not to have NBC fact check anybody

Trump Says 2 Liberal Supreme Court Justices — Including RBG — Should Recuse from Trump CasesTrump Says 2 Liberal Supreme Court Justices — Including RBG — Should Recuse from 'Trump Related' Cases I want realdonaldtrump recused from being POTUS Shouldn’t his court appointments recuse themselves from cases applying to him?
