Trump: My Response To COVID Has Been Great If Blue State Deaths Aren’t Counted
President Donald Trump praised his coronavirus response during Wednesday’s press briefing, saying the death toll has been well within the range expected if his administration did “a good job.”
He added that this is the case “despite the fact that the blue states had tremendous death rates.”
“If you take the blue states out,” Trump continued. “We’re at a level that I don’t think anybody in the world would be at.”
The president’s comments came as the U.S. coronavirus death toll approaches 200,000 lives lost.
