Reporter Peter Alexander asks Trump to give words of comfort and support to Americans fearful of Coronavirus - and what words of comfort did Trump respond with...?

Note the expression on the reporter just along from Alexander - John Roberts is the Fox News White House correspondent. And when the Fox News guy is rolling his eyes Trump is treading on dodgy ground.

Mike Pence later answered the same question calmly and sensibly.

i can’t imagine how some folks standing with Trump on the podium must think - esp. Deborah Brix and Anthony Fauci - neither of whom would be called Trumpists.

Was watching an american news channel last night. He was getting a good kicking from quite a few experts in all fields. Cancelling a few things that Obama had in place has not helped him one bit.

Reporter '...four senators are in isolation...'

Trump '...who are they please, who are they?'

Reporter '...ah - Mitt Romney, Senator A, Senator B and Senator C'

Trump '...Romney's in isolation?'

Reporter 'Yes'

Trump 'Gee - that's too bad'

The guy is ... :mad:

In yesterday's press briefing Trump tells the US that things will be relaxed soon - in weeks - he's not 'looking at months'.

Guess who wasn't on the podium with him yesterday - yes - Dr Anthony Fauci - he who often follows Trump onto the podium and though not directly contradicting the President states the truth of it.

Reports are that Fauci has been telling Trump that such 'expectations' are very misleading - but Trump doesn't want to hear that and so clearly has decided he didn't want Fauci on the podium with him yesterday.

Widespread view is that Covid-19 President of the US is Governor Andrew Cuomo. Democratic Governors (of California and NY states) are taking a lead where their President is failing miserably.

Rarely watch what Trump has to say. My mind is made up on what an absolute loon he is. Watched a bit yesterday... its unbelievable. A country like America being led by (probably) the most dangerous man in the world.

Countries around the world trying to do the right thing over C19, and he's going to let it run wild. Maybe the world should shut their borders to Americans, post-crisis.

Many are saying that Trump is not in control. it is the governors of California and New York states (amongst a few others) who are telling it how it is and acting unilaterally - as they can - effectively ignoring anything that Trump is saying about it now and how long it will last. Indeed the briefings given by Andrew Cuomo are excellent. A world away from Trump's Tripe.

By his diminishing of the virus in January and February - calling it out to be a hoax etc - Trump did not - could not - initiate pro-active preventative measures - as doing so would undermine his 'It's a Hoax' line he was putting it out to Trumpers. Ultimately he will be held to account - if not by the American public or the courts, then by his Maker.

All he cares about is the economy. When and if this is over I guarantee you he takes some kind of credit for it.
He might well try. No doubt he'll be blaming the likes of Governors Cuomo (NY) and Newsome (Ca) for the possibly dire condition of their state economies when US pulls out of this. And he'll say that they didn't need to do what they have done.

Meanwhile on Sunday he tweets the good folks of the USA:

WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF, AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!”

And remember way back 9th March what he was saying...

Surely there must be some kind of system inplace that can step in and have this man step aside other than impeachment (which failed), he must be the only one who believes what he's saying.

He is just handling this through the prism of his reelection. That is all he cares about, anything else is secondary.

Surely he has to be removed at this stage for the safety of the people!
That's as I said in my previous reply, there has to be some kind of thing in place to protect the people from a mad man, surely he can't be all powerful as like a dictator.

Strikes me that Trump is taking a hands-off position; slopey-shouldering things to the state governors, and speaking up Easter as when it’ll be fine to go back to normal - all so that when things are grim at Easter he can simply blame the state governors. He’ll be claiming that if they’d listened to him things wouldn’t be so grim. As evidenced by his words and actions this is one despicable person.
