If you’re an infectious disease with the sole aim of infecting as many people as possible, then Donald Trump seems like your perfect president. In one of the more bizarre recent interviews the President has given, he told Axios’ Jonathan Swam that he has the coronavirus situation under control. When Swam pushed back and cited that staggering U.S. death toll, the President said that “They are dying. That’s true. And it is what it is. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t doing everything we can. It’s under control as much as you can control it.”
This comment comes as there’s mounting evidence that tens of thousands of lives could have been saved if more comprehensive action was taken earlier. And while we’re used to the President Trump lying, his actions indicate that he wants to help the coronavirus on its path of destruction more than he wants to help the American people stay safe. Sad!
