Prez Trump Shares Historical Perspective On Pandemic

Trump says virus worse 'attack' than Pearl Harbor

US President Donald Trump has described the coronavirus pandemic as the "worst attack" ever on the United States, pointing the finger at China. Mr Trump said the outbreak had hit the US harder than the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in World War Two, or the 9/11 attacks two decades ago.

How 'Karen' Became a Coronavirus Villain

A popular joke about entitled white women is now a big pandemic meme. In the ongoing, tense conversation over how long America has to remain locked down during the coronavirus pandemic, one of the more absurd moments came two weeks ago: Carolyn Goodman, the mayor of Las Vegas, called for the immediate reopening of her city's casinos, offering her constituents up as a "control group" to test whether stay-at-home measures are actually effective.

Trump is saying there will be a vaccine by the end of the year. But by then the election will be over, so which ever way it goes Trump does not have to worry about being held responsible when there is no vaccine by then.

Trump talking about Pearl Harbor is a joke. He never served in the military. None of his children have. He comes from a family of cowards in that regard.

^^^^ why are you covering for Trump? Just think of all those people who will support him because they believe there will be a vaccine by the end of the year. But it is no vet even possible to get a reliable vaccine that quick. At best the will get something with side effects that you would not want to experience.

The next thing Karen will complain about is the vaccine won’t be good enough because like the flu, it evolves every year and it’s an “educated guess” on what strain or variation will hit next time. The Karen’s of the world just can’t be pleased with anything.

Trump has nothing to do with the virus. He is reacting the best way he is being told to by experts. If you belive this virus isn't political than he is getting the same advise as any president would. It's up to all of us not to spread it.

Citizens need the basics of food, shelter, and utilities for their families. They need their small businees to open or resume their job to survive.

The chances of a 18 to 60 year old contracting corona virus and dying is .0001%. The chance of losing shelter, food etc. For their families is 100% if they cannot work and earn a living.

Democrat extemists do not want businesses to reopen as they want the economy to be tanked to hurt Trumps chances of re-election.

Wear masks, wear gloves, wash hands repeatedly and use sanitizer if you can find it. Clean surfaces repeatedly.

Nice, the virus is now like the Pearl Harbor attack. Only difference is no one knew Pearl Harbor was going to be attacked before hand. Sure it was a different day and age, the world has a much bigger place, strategic intelligence not near as abundant. The COVID 19 threat - he had all kinds of warnings, several intelligence briefings, etc. A thinking man would've realized that the world is much smaller today and the spread from China was going every direction. That ain't Trump though. He just decided to put in some half ass ban of travel from China and resume playing golf, doing cult rallies, and downplaying the threat.

United States needs to ensure manufacturing of masks, sanitizer, latex gloves and clorox wipes is performed in the U.S. and stockpiled for future pandemics.

They need to flood the distribution chain with these products. Hand sanitizer, masks, latex gloves, and clorox wipes still cannot be found by the average citizen.

8:20 - how about the asshole in the WH comes up with a plan to open things up and mitigate this going forward outside of Imma let the states figure it out?

I mean, I don't disagree, people are hurting, businesses are hurting but there's absolutely no leadership from the top. None. Does that piss you off in the least or are you just drinking the kool aid?

And continued stimulus via more debt is not leadership and a solution.

Elect a shitty businessman as POTUS, get a shitty POTUS.

Having the State Governors decide when to reopen is actually smart. Kansas, Missouri and many western states have much lower incidences of corona virus than New York / New Jersey.

Thus, if elected State Governors feel their states have hospital capacity for future corona virus cases etc and the curve has flattened then let them reopen.

New York is a disaster due to the Democrats in charge like Cuomo auctioning off stockpiled ventilators and unpreparedness, horrendous nursing home practices etc.

The left wing media is focused on New York and assumes the midwest and western states are as incompetently run as New York. The media and Democrats want states to stay closed to further tank the economy to hurt President Trumps reelection chances. Americans see through Pelosis, Schumer and Schiffs motives and propaganda.

Travel bans, partnering private and public resources, daily press briefings, pro-active stimulus packages, extending unemployment benefits, lowering interest rates, incentivizing American companies to manufacturw masks, hospital gowns, ventilators etc. is outstanding leadership.

Meanwhile, Biden and Pelosi hid in their basements and skyped negative attacks on the President.

Anonymous said...

^^^Swiss cheese travel bans, partnering my ass - is it partnering when a state orders their own PPE and the Fed comes in and takes it? You know MD ordered their own and promptly hid it from the Fed and had it guarded by the State Guard so the Fed wouldn't try to come and take it? You have some states who have more than they need and refuse to share supplies. Yep, that's leadership. Those daily press briefings - you fucking joking man? Those were Trump's rally substitutes full of lies and bullshit.

Where's the testing? You know, the testing Trump continuously lies about the abundance of? Mass testing seems to work in other countries but you think Trump pays any attention to that shit?

All this shit you like to pat your dear leader on the back for, should've been done months ago instead of fucking golfing and cult rallies.

I don't look to Pelosi for leadership, I look to the oval office and unfortunately we have life long fuck up in there who's only in the position he's in because his old man was rich and bailed his shitty ass out.

This whole situation is on Trump, period. It'd be one thing if he prepared and mitigated as best he could. But he didn't. He instituted a shitty travel ban and then washed his hands of the issue.

Trump did everything possible to minimize deaths with the Democrats fighting him every step of the way.

Democrats are treasonous globalists selling out America every chance they get.

The left is an assortment of gays, transgender, slackers, atheists, drug heads and baby killers.

A bunch of losers in life with nothing going for them but hate against the United States and tbeir fellow Americans for being losers amd slackers in life.
