Trump defies medical experts, wants the country re-opened in two weeks

First the stable genius fired the entire pandemic response team in 2018, and didn't replace any of them. Then he called the coronavirus a hoax. Then he later claimed he knew the coronavirus was a pandemic before anyone started using the word.

Now this.

Quote:
Trump says he wants the country 'opened up and just raring to go by Easter'

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he wants the nation "opened up and just raring to go by Easter," a date just more than two weeks away that few health experts believe will be sufficient in containing the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking during a Fox News town hall, Trump reiterated he was eager to see the nation return to normal, even as doctors warn the nation will see a massive spike in cases if Americans return to crowded workplaces or events.
"I give it two weeks," Trump said earlier in the town hall, suggesting he was ready to phase out his 15-day self-isolating guidelines when they expire. "I guess by Monday or Tuesday, it's about two weeks. We will assess at that time and give it more time if we need a little more time. We have to open this country up."

Trump predicts 'this is going to be bad' but vows to reopen America
Despite announcing the new guidelines under the banner "The President's Coronavirus Guidelines for America," Trump seemed to distance himself from the practices during the town hall.

"Somehow, the word got out that this is the thing we are supposed to be doing," he said, noting the country had "never done a thing like this before."
"But we had to do it. It's been very painful for our country and very destabilizing," he said.

As his advisers prepare options for returning the country to work, Trump suggested that Americans would still be able to exercise good health practices while still returning to normal.

"We have to go back to work much sooner than people thought," he said.
Trump again compared coronavirus to the flu and auto accidents, despite warnings from his health advisers that such analogies make little sense.
"We lose thousands and thousands of people to the flu. We don't turn the country off," he said, adding: "We lose much more than that to automobile accidents."

Last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci said comparing coronavirus to auto accidents was a "false equivalency" and said it was important to "face the fact" that coronavirus is more lethal than the flu.

At least you agree that the lockdown is helping some people. That's a start. Baby steps.

No, he didn't call the virus a hoax. He called the Democrat reaction to it a hoax.

Looks like the death part of the Trump death cult is coming sooner rather than later.

Go on Trumpers. Listen to your dear leader and return to work and shopping in 1 or 2 weeks.

Because god knows you all will never admit that dumbass you put in office cares more about being reelected in a good economy that he does about your health.

That is true, and likely another example of one of his own projections.

Which is humorous, because regardless of Democrats' reactions, it shows that Trump has no idea what "hoax" means.

The democratic reaction was to to take this virus seriously then, was warning people to take it seriously then, and start working on a solution then.

Not really sure what effective defense of Trump you guys think your having here. That's pretty pathetic. He didnt call the virus a hoax. He called all the warnings and affects of the virus a hoax. That's totally not calling the virus a hoax. He believed there was a virus, just didnt believe lithe virus was what it was.

Okay champ. Pats head.

Imagine looking at Italy and Spain as guidance for anything we should do here.

No thanks.

Time to fire up the American economic engine and re-open society.

He's a politician and knows that if he advocates re-evaluating and possibly "re-opening" the country in two weeks now, he can always cede to the calls of the medical community and his political opponents and keep it closed. Then come debate time when the economy is cratered people won't blame him. He will say everyone, democrats, republicans, the medical community, state governors, etc all wanted to keep it closed.

His political opponents will be forced to either except the blame or blame the corona virus. They will have a harder time blaming Trump for a demolished economy.
