Trump on the coronavirus

Yesterday when asked about mask shortages for medical personnel, Trump responded about “past administrations”. SMH


Here is some of what President Trump in the US has been saying about the coronavirus disease (covid-19) for the past two months:

22 Jan 2020 (1 confirmed US case): “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”

02 Feb 2020 (11 cases): “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China. It’s going to be fine.”

Pritzer also holds daily briefings Mon-Fri. They are aired on our local television stations. One of the things that Trump left out is that the Governor said he is competing with FEMA and other states for PPE and ventilators. FEMA has over-bidded the states so that companies deliver to them first.
