  1. Countries that have opened schools have done so only after getting COVID under control. Not at all the case in the USA.

      The numbers are inflated.

      Robert Tayman’s twitter ” Nurses at a hospital doing covid testing became suspicious when all their tests were coming back positive. They sent 2 tests with unused swabs and they came back positive. Nurses used fake names, sent 10 unused swabs to be tested and all came back positive. We are being played !”

      @Some Guy Baloney -New Zealand closed schools and results are infinitely better than Sweden.

      @Dave Mudam Looks at Swedens numbers hardly a success

    Oh no it’s not a good time to do this kind of thing here today now. It’s a wrong time to do anything else right now here.

  3. Asking for a DR? Or a Scientist???? Please anyone with medical knowledge could you step up to the mic?? Oh that’s right, Trump is withholding Dr. Fauci away from the press. smh

    • There are indeed many people who got a medical degree in politics (not the ones you see here) but they get silenced.

    “The democrats aren’t into the workers” He says as we begin to get less than 1/3 of our unemployment money starting next week.

  5. Of course he talked to Putin…..of course he talked to the prince of Saudi Arabia…

    And yeah he wants to still open up schools with all that precaution he’s taking with adults sending kids to school will put people in higher risk because kids can bring stuff home

  8. he better pray that he never misplaces his script in route to this campaign rally. He would just stand there more dumbfounded as he is now.

  9. Gee, who would I like to have brief me about a public health emergency? Certainly not an expert.

  10. The coward fake President announced the Florida component of the RNC is canceled, because of the coronavirus.

    But he demands that all children in Florida report to school.

      Our goal should be being able to send children to school come September. If it’s unsafe to return to school, we’ve failed. If it is safe, great. That should be the goal that we are working towards now, not just cancel it months ahead.

    For the Best Actor of playing president the Oscar goes to……

    Yesterday he said things will get worse before it gets better, today everything is just incredible!!

    This is how egotistical he is. He removes Educated Professionals in the Medical 🧬🧪👩🏻‍⚕️👨🏻‍⚕️and Science 🦠🌡 👨🏼‍🏫👩🏼‍🏫👩🏻‍🔬 field from the Corona Task platform so he can give his “version” of coronavirus data 🎲 put together by 🧸🎠🛀🏽🤹🏼🙈🙉🙊🧛🏼‍♂️🧟👶🏼🤡

  14. Putin’s Puppet does not care about America or Americans including our soldiers.
    Every decision he makes starts with “what’s in it for ME ?”

  15. Someone else is writing his speeches. He clearly doesn’t read or have a comprehension of the content beforehand, because he always ends up rambling and contradicting himself. He is only applying “common sense” now in order to get re-elected but he never had it. Dr. Fauci and everyone else around him had common sense, and was telling him our country needed to wear masks. But he as a leader failed miserably. Don’t blame it on China, we have the highest infection rate. How is THAT doing great??

  16. “Don’t wear masks.” “Wear masks”. “Hold conventions” “Dont hold conventions.” “Give testing money.” “Don’t give testing money.” “Do a payroll tax cut” “dont do a payroll tax cut” My god, this president can’t make up his mind. Scary he is leading an entire country.

      That’s why the intl. leaders stopped taking him into account, snicker behind closed doors, treat him politely like you would your demented grandma and go about their agendas.
      You can’t follow someones course when he runs more zickzack than a hare with a pack of dogs on his tail.

  17. There is nothing here of any value for the public, just an incompetent desperate man’s ego.

    That means 99% of the country hasn’t been infected.

    • Claudia Wenzel | July 24, 2020 at 5:29 AM | Reply

      As of today you stand at more than 4 million confirmed (!) cases and the CDC’s estimate that that’s around 1/10th of actual infections I’d beg to differ..
      Also, the long time/permanent damage the virus is doing to organs like lung, brain, spleen among others, even with superficially seen mild cases doesn’t bode too well.
      Have been wondering why, for example, your US Army doesn’t take anyone on who has overcome a bout of COVID19?
      Might that be because they are not to eager to carry the load of medical bills, pensions and so on?
      And the commander-in-chief of same army says it’s the sniffles….

    • Just wait for the reinfections because people think they’re immune now.

  19. “[Federal Agents] are doing a great job protecting federal property… courthouses and… other property. (Pause) People too”

    • He’s recently stated that he’s going to send federal agents to democratic cities. He’s using the military for literal political gain by targeting his political enemies. The only thing stopping him from being literal Hitler is executing these people, which i’m sure his fans support.

    • itsa mystery | July 24, 2020 at 10:37 AM | Reply

      @Earthium execution will begin in 2020

    • Using a private army, is just a start. Do you really believe this fascist idiot will stop with sending his private army to Democratic states? This idiot won’t stop until he’s changed the USA into a banana republic. He needs to be voted out asap.

    • @mike styles Pres. Trump will be OUT in November!

    How the hell can you think of opening schools when the disease is literally running rampant?

    And kids can bring the disease to parents, teachers, grandparents etc and transmit it around.
