New Book Discusses Trump Statements
Note: This story includes editorial content.
Bob Woodward is a well-known journalist that has published many books. His new book “Rage,” which is a follow up to his first book “Fear,” states that in February Trump already knew how deadly Corona-Virus was.
There were 18 different interviews conducted and recorded between Woodward and President Trump from December 5, 2019 to July 21, 2020. In his many interviews with Woodward, Trump mentions many other important details about Corona Virus that he knew before the first death in the U.S.
“I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic,” Trump says.
Trump let down the public by not sharing this vital information that could have saved thousands of lives. Trump blatantly says in the interviews that he knows exactly how deadly Corona Virus is and that it also is not just affecting older people.
Some other statements from Trump about the Corona Virus include,“The virus has nothing to do with me,” and “It goes through the air.”
There are also recordings of Trump saying he wants to “Play it down,” speaking about Corona Virus, and “This is deadly stuff.”
In January, National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien told Trump that Corona Virus would be the “biggest national security threat,” and Trump then said on May 6th that he does not remember being told that.
Trump, who is supposed to be the leader of our country, knew that Corona Virus was an airborne, highly dangerous and a contagious virus and he cared more about his own image as the leader of this country.
Trump calls himself a cheerleader for this country which is a perfect description. He will do anything and everything to make himself and his team look better, even if it means downplaying a deadly virus and causing thousands of deaths. Trump has already seen the future implications of his actions, over 190,000 US deaths.
