It is what Donald Trump said about COVID-19 in February.

Quote:
he never called the virus a "hoax" - contrary to several viral social media posts.

The confusion may have stemmed from rambling remarks way back in February, when he accused Democrats of "politicizing the coronavirus" - then talked about his impeachment, calling it a "hoax" and criticism of his handling of Covid-19 "their new hoax."

It's been made clear in the news he knew about all this but downplayed it on purpose because "he didn't want anyone to panic."

Well his "intention" sure caused many deaths and got many people infected and now many of us have pre existing conditions.

Plus he didn't take this seriously himself because he didn't wear a mask and wouldn't social distance. Now he has gotten it himself and now has a preexisting condition.

In March, I was at a restaurant with CNN news on discussing COVID19, an elderly man kept muttering, "FAKE NEWS" .... "FAKE NEWS" .... "FAKE NEWS".

Likely, a FOX news viewer.

Here in the UK they seemed to know about it before China knew about it.

His stunt of being driven around, endangering a handfull of people for a photo-op, shows that he values the aesthetics of his reign higher than the reality of the disease even beyond his own health. If he survives this unscathed, we are truly and thoroughly f****d.

I wish him a speedy recovery, of course. ^-°

The only thing he really didn't want to panic was the stock market.
