In a statement on February 26th, Donald Trump said, “And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”
On February 28th Trump said that coronavirus will “disappear” like a “miracle.” In late February, he speculated that warm weather would kill the virus and stop its spread.
He recently told reporters, “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away. Be calm. It’s really working out. And a lot of good things are going to happen. The consumer is ready, and the consumer is so powerful in our country with what we’ve done with tax cuts and regulation cuts and all of those things. The consumer has never been in a better position than they are right now. So a lot of good things are going to happen.”
And then this showed up on my newsfeed about an hour ago:And then this alert came on my iPhone:Shelter in place? Stay Home? No Gatherings? So everything is pretty much shut down in America, or at least in my part of America.
But it is reassuring to hear from our President that he’s done such a good job and that “a lot of good things are going to happen.”
