  1. And where did all of this PPE come from..? Yep…. C H I N A
    Thump just can’t tell the honest story about ANYTHING… and NOW he’s a f^^king doctor

  2. So looking at the screen with the task force clustered up so close, to get in the shot, it's hard to take the "social distance" instruction serious. luckily most can see what needs to happen to stay virus free.

  3. Someone ask him what Easter means. Please. And he's barely hanging coherent. Surely people see this? This is him rallying to the fools he keeps ripping off as best he can. And prosecute pompeo, the lying sack of sh*t.

  4. Trump told the reporters they should begin with praising him when the start to ask him a question. AND I HAVE SEEN SEVERAL REPORTERS THANK HIM BEFORE THEY ASK HIM A QUESTION I SAY TO THE REPORTERS. 🚫 kissing A..!

  5. The racist incompetent Democrat mayors of NYC, New Orleans and Chicago are responsible for the higher deaths among minorities.

  6. Trump never stops lying: Here is the FACT CHECK on Trump's constant claim to fame of his "Tavel Ban" . Below is an excerpt from:

    https://www.factcheck.org/2020/03/the-facts-on-trumps-travel-restrictions/

    "A Travel ‘Ban’?

    For starters, health experts say Trump was wrong to refer to the travel restrictions as a “travel ban,” as he did in a telephone interview on March 4 with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. During a town hall on March 5, Trump said he “closed down the borders to China and to other areas that are very badly affected.” That’s not accurate.

    As Azar explained when he announced the travel restrictions on Jan. 31, the policy prohibits non-U.S. citizens, other than the immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, who have traveled to China within the last two weeks from entering the U.S.

    At a House subcommittee hearing on the coronavirus on Feb. 5, Ron Klain, White House Ebola response coordinator under the Obama administration, took issue with the characterization of the travel restrictions as a travel “ban.”

    “We don’t have a travel ban,” Klain said. “We have a travel Band-Aid right now. First, before it was imposed, 300,000 people came here from China in the previous month. So, the horse is out of the barn.”

    “There’s no restriction on Americans going back and forth,” Klain said. “There are warnings. People should abide by those warnings. But today, 30 planes will land in Los Angeles that either originated in Beijing or came here on one-stops, 30 in San Francisco, 25 in New York City. Okay? So, unless we think that the color of the passport someone carries is a meaningful public health restriction, we have not placed a meaningful public health restriction.”

    Indeed, on Jan. 24, a week before the travel restrictions, the CDC confirmed two cases of the novel coronavirus in the U.S. from people who had returned from Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began.

    Furthermore, Klain said, the import of goods from China is exempt from the travel restrictions, “and, of course, the people who fly the planes and drive the boats that bring those goods from China. We couldn’t ban that activity. We vitally need that. Ninety percent of the antibiotics in this country come from China. All kinds of vital medical supplies … we will use to treat people. So, travel bans … that’s not what we’re imposing, that’s not what exists.”

    As part of the travel restrictions, Azar announced that any U.S. citizen returning to the U.S. who had been in Hubei Province in China in the previous 14 days would be subject to mandatory quarantine and health screening. U.S. citizens returning from mainland China outside Hubei Province were ordered to undergo health screenings and “up to 14 days of monitored self-quarantine to ensure they’ve not contracted the virus and do not pose a public health risk,” Azar said.

    At the time the restrictions were announced, there were only six confirmed cases of the novel virus in the U.S. The outbreak, which began in Wuhan, China, at the end of 2019, has now spread to more than 70 countries, including the U.S. According to a Johns Hopkins University case tracker and a New York Times database, as of March 6, more than 250 people in the U.S. have been infected with the new disease, known as COVID-19, and at least 14 have died."

  7. Trump has now discovered another drug plus zinc ….. he's like a witch doctor with his potions, who told him about zinc FFS
    'Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. … Zinc also helps wounds heal and is important for proper senses of taste and smell.'

  8. 13 or 14 people packed in the photo op. So stupid. You know. THE DOCTORS SAY 6 FEET APART.. BUT LOOK IM ON TV. STUPID.

  9. South Korea only has 200 deaths and is a fifth the size of New York imagine how many lives would of been saved if trump had taken this serious in January like South Korea when the gov asked industry to ramp up testing full blast showing the US how it’s done
