    The strategy is to let the market run. The market will decide. Business as usual, sounds conservative .

    Bad idea.

      But I’ll give myself a back pay everyday during the briefing and tell everyone what a good job I’m doing.

    • Yeah he said that to avoid blame when things fell apart. God, the worst “wartime” strategy ever.

    • “I don’t take responsibility at all” Conald is right, it’s his easy mark supporters fault. He’s doing what con men do. Lie.

    It is starting to come out that while the COVID 19 virus was being down played in this this country, U.S. medical supply manufacturers were shipping vital supplies overseas to countries where the pandemic was starting to really take hold. These U.S. manufacturers, financially, were making a killing. This was going on until at least March 17. Now we have a shortage of medical supplies in this country. It is almost looking like this was all intentional. There is something not quite right
    about all of this. Anytime the President is asked questions, using his own words, for clarification on certain things, he flies off the handle, attacking the reporter & the media in general. And the question is never answered.

    • Covid is the corona virus disease. The Virus called Sars-CoV-2

    • @NoName splitting pubic hairs? who cares if hiv is the virus and aids is the disease – if the horse draws the cart and in the carriage is the grim reaper, stay away from the wagon!

    • Lars Jones couldn’t have said it better!!

      If one goes to The Intercept March 31, April 1, April 2, there is an in depth article with links to U.S. manufacturerers & shipping lists for those inteterested. Nobody is making anything up – except maybe the Trump Administration.

  4. I cant believe people makes memes and jokes out of something this serious

  5. When you’re dead, you don’t know that you’re dead. It’s difficult only for the others. It’s the same when you’re stupid.

      @cj p I see your 3 year old trump troll account is getting frayed around the edges.

      Don Quixote – that is funny

    • After the H1n1 virus the governments stockpiles of PPE were not replenished by the Obama administration.

    • @Mitchell Deliman I only have one youtube account moron… Its called “set to private” learn how youtube works.

    • @Ben Theredonethat Clinton was impeached
      Nixon was never impeached.

      Obama should had been impeached.
      Democratic zombies like you are dumb and know nothing about facts.

    THIS WAS PREDICTED!! Thank You John! We are smart, of course we saw this coming

  7. Nobody knew this could happen.
    Translation: I didn’t know this could happen.

    I’m in SLC and we’ve been home, streets empty and schools, closed for weeks.

  9. This is a war against everyone. So everyone has to contribute especially those who have more than enough… like millionaires, billionaires, sportsmen, singers, actors, TV Hosts, a lot and a lot. Without an end to the war then no one enjoys whatever he has. This enemy doesn’t distinguish between the rich and poor, young and old, rude and polite, white and black, American and non American, Medical staff and patient so on and so forth.

    God bless the health care workers

    • They are the true victims…sent to fight a war brought on by overall negligence, corporate interests, and people eating live animals.

    • yea let them build more 5G medical facilities…and then wonder why they are dying

    • Deanna Marcinski | April 2, 2020 at 2:13 PM | Reply

      @Paul Perry I agree they are the true victims and so are the animals on this planet. We think we have it bad having to be quarantined. Nothing compares to what these Health care workers are dealing with. And nothing compares to what we do to helpless innocent animals for a ten-minute snack. 🙁

  11. Decades of unpreparedness…

    • Clara Bakhshi Fool. The U.S. is ranked as the most prepared nation for an epidemic such as this. We can’t get the supplies we need because we aren’t in the same continent said supplies are made (test components, masks, ventilators)

      Last I checked, Trump warned this exact thing would happen as a result of our manufacturing being incentivized by NAFTA to outsource to other countries for cheaper. We can force them to do it here, we just don’t.

      As a result, Trump has to make executive decrees and get stimulus passed to make companies build the medical supplies we need because China bought the world’s supply of masks/makes them and hoarded them, and ship faulty test kits.

      Australia’s economy is largely run by Chinese companies, which shipped all of their medical supplies out of a Australia to China.

      You are being deceived by the media and aren’t aware of the enormous power move China is making by exploiting the world right now.

      Personally I am prepared because I’m very secure and well in my home and ultimately am not affected by this.

      @Clara Bakhshi👈 socialist liberal arrogance at its fines

    • @Annnora C prove that Donald trump refunded the CDC. Cite your sources with links.

    • @Robert Alan Google CDC defuned, stroll down, in their budget it states this administration did request cuts in CDC, hopefully does reverse it back, have to wait and see what happens, but he did request it.

    • @Annnora C exactly. The president requested it be cut. He didn’t request it to be defunded. Additionally, the president doesn’t have the authority to defund anything. The house of Representatives and the senate have to be on the same page. So that’s multiple points of fake news from you.

  12. I thought Trump said he was a “War Time President”. Can you imagine Trump as President during WWII!! Thank God he wasn’t. We would all be dead or speaking german.Trump is proving each and everyday he is not capable of being a President of anything but maybe a golf course……but he would probably have to file for bankruptcy on that too.

    Should have spend more on medicare then wasting billions annually on “Defend” budget spending on weapon for self created enemies that just doesnt want to be bothered and left. alone.

  14. Damn I’m kinda tired of winning …

  15. When hundreds can turn into thousands in one week, you want to act pre-emptively. It is already too late when it’s in thousands.

  16. And then everyone ignores it, blames each other, and the process repeats.

    • Mike Lopez , its a mess because the Globalists exported US Mfg

    • @Beachdudeca

      Quit listening to crazy conspiracies. Manufacturing isn’t the only reason. We have assholes concealing data for starters. Then we built a system based off competition and not cooperation. The list of fuckups is endless.

      @Erin K I was gonna blame this all on stupidity. People ignore it because they are stupid. There are tons of anti Trump people running around ignoring it too.

    • @Hildebeast Clinton – So now you’re a ‘research scientist’ and not a Ruskie troll anymore? That was quick. But then you must think that ‘doktor tRump’ knows what he’s talking about during his press briefing rallies.

    • Mike Lopez After the H1n1 virus the governments stockpiles of PPE were not replenished by the Obama administration.
