Trump quote : "Coronavirus is the Democrats' new hoax"--2/28/20

Recommended Posts

It seems only a few months ago that the American public was not too concerned about the coronavirus in general.

But the serious situation in the United States today makes us wonder how we got to this point, and what should have been done in the prior months to prevent this catastrophe.

A look back might refresh our memories.

TRUMP: "By the way, how bad were the Academy Awards this year? [Booing] 'And the winner is a movie from South Korea!' What was that all about? We got enough problems with South Korea with trade."
He then repeatedly calls Brad Pitt "a little wise guy."

Scoop: Trump will ask Congress for emergency funds to fight coronavirus, although health officials fear the request - potentially $1B - will be too small and quickly exhausted.
Trump’s pending request comes as senior officials grapple with the growing possibility of US coronavirus outbreak — which could disrupt economy and pose a re-election threat.
While a White House official cautioned the plan is preliminary, a congressional aide said that lawmakers were told to expect the request soon.

1. With the coronavirus killing thousands and threatening to tank the global economy, I feel like more people should be talking about the fact that Trump fired the entire pandemic response team two years ago and then didn't replace them
2. Trump also cut funding for the CDC, forcing the CDC to cancel its efforts to help countries prevent infectious-disease threats from becoming epidemics in 39 of 49 countries in 2018.
Among the countries abandoned? China.
3. This isn't just about accountability. It's about drawing attention to the structural problems in the US response effort before things get worse.
Why isn't the House holding hearings right now?

Replying to and
As much as I wish the “Caronavirus” is just overblown media hype, it is indeed spreading to many countries outside China and is a new disease that inspires fear in many people. Even if the flu kills more people, the coronavirus has the potential to do the same after it spreads.
If the CDC is right and we may have to change our behaviors to avoid large crowds and physically isolate ourselves from others, not only will the economy take a huge hit but we will create conditions ripe for discrimination against Asians that could lead to violence.
