Trump Jr: Democrats Hope Coronavirus “Kills Millions Of People”
President Donald Trump’s eldest son railed against Democrats on Friday for hoping to see millions of coronavirus deaths just to end his father’s “streak of winning.”
Of course, Donald Trump Jr.’s comments are entirely without basis, but that did not stop the presidential son from telling Fox & Friends hosts that Democrats are using the outbreak to hurt the president.
“We’ve seen this play out for four years,” Trump Jr. said. “Anything that they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will.”
“But for them to try to take a pandemic, and seemingly hope that it comes here and kills millions of people so that they can end Donald Trump’s streak of winning is a new level of sickness,” he said.
“I don’t know if this is coronavirus or Trump derangement syndrome,” he added, “but these people are infected badly.”
Where Trump Jr. is getting his information that Democrats wish for millions of people to die is unclear, as Democrats in both the House and Senate have called for billions more in coronavirus emergency response funding than the president himself initially requested and questioned whether the Trump administration is doing enough to combat the virus' spread.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to insist that all is well with coronavirus in the United States, despite warnings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the virus is likely to continue its spread within America’s borders.
