"The number is almost nothing. Because we’ve gotten control of this thing."

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of Thursday afternoon, 5,609 Americans died from COVID-19 in the past seven days.

For Donald Trump Jr., this is “almost nothing.”

Trump Jr. told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday:

“The reality is this … I went through the CDC data, because I kept hearing about new infections … I was like, why aren’t they talking about deaths? Oh, because the number is almost nothing. Because we’ve gotten control of this thing. We understand how it works. They have the therapeutics to be able to deal with this. … It’s gone to almost nothing.”
