Trump: “Safety might happen at a level like safety has never happened before”

Trump both condemned and supported contradictory positions today during his presser. Nothing new, but unlike his campaign rallies, he gets refuted in real time. What national biowarfare suicide looks like. 

Trump said his CDC director was ‘misquoted.’ Then his CDC director said he was ‘accurately quoted.’

The spread of the coronavirus in the United States continues, now with more confirmed deaths than in any other country (with the caveat that data from China aren’t reliable). And as it has spread, we keep learning about new warning signs that apparently weren’t heeded.
It wouldn’t be until mid-March that Trump would truly acknowledge the gravity of the situation. He would repeatedly say the situation was “under control,” downplay the threat and compare it to the flu. For about two months before that, though, people around him were offering cautions about the pandemic that the coronavirus would become.
