WATCH: Trump Dismisses Concerns About Coronavirus, Calls It The 'New Hoax'
At a rally in South Carolina, Trump claimed that the Coronavirus is the Democrats 'new hoax'.
It makes sense when you think about it. After all, the Trump administration barred an infectious disease expert from commenting about coronavirus, and earlier today, Mike Pompeo refused to say that the coronavirus was not a hoax.
As Nancy Cook and Matthew Choi reported in Politico:
“The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. They're politicizing it,” he said. “They don't have any clue. They can't even count their votes in Iowa. No, they can't. They can't count their votes. One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.’ That did not work out too well. They could not do it. They tried the impeachment hoax.”
Then Trump called the coronavirus “their new hoax.”
“Whether it is the virus that we're talking about or many other public health threats, the Democrat policy of open borders is a direct threat to the health and well-being of all Americans. Now, you see it with the coronavirus. You see it. You see it with the coronavirus. You see that. When you have this virus or any other virus or any other problem coming in, it's not the only thing that comes in through the border and we are setting records now at the order,” Trump said.
We are so unbelievably screwed.
