  1. Trump: “So in a way by doing more testing, we’re just making ourselves look bad.”

    Trump was clearly reflecting on every test he ever took in school.

  2. We need new leadership in the White House

    • You will get someone new in 2024. Probably Pence

      @Robo Trump Pence lacks working class appeal. Trumps energy is needed to win the rust belt. Pence would get obliterated being portrayed as a crazy religious guy

      Jumper : Who do you suggest? Surely not Joe Biden you would have China and everyone else screwing us over again. You may not like what he says but he is doing things that are getting results. The pandemic was an unforeseen catastrophe an issue anyone would have difficulty working through so he is doing his best. If you think you can do better run for president. I am tired of people slinging mud at our president…where has respect gone! You think there is a better option in a Democrat…surely you can’t be serious. I would not vote Democrat if my life depended on it.

      Immediately.

  3. Trump’s very survival is dependent on people believing his lies. He knows that if his cult ever stops believing in his lies, he’s toast.

    • maricia mariani hiding behind his big fat arse bc he defends bigots. Plain and simple.

    • Lyle Sanders put down the booze and go kiss your sister. It’s ok. Trump says you can fly and be free.

    • Indull Shade they all are.

      @I Care Interesting reading. Some truth in it. But most of your treatise is not true. Just a quick aside, but how much American debt did PRC buy so that Bush 2 could prosecute the 2 wars? And not just from China. The big exodus of jobs being outsourced started with Nixon and Chou En Lai. It has only gotten worse since then under both parties. Trump promised to bring back manufacturing. But it was just an idle promise to get votes in the Rust Belt. I wonder if as many people will believe him again? I breaks my heart when I see old videos of things being made in the U.S. This happened with a fixed and steady purpose under both parties. Also. The American consumer cannot be made to buy an inferior car to that made by the Japanese and Koreans. Suggest you refresh upon Gresham’s Law and its application to manufacturing. Also suggest you review Nash’s work on international finance, production plusescand minuses, and developing markets. My friend, I wish it was a simple as you described because if it was we could fix it. Lastly, are you aware the all of the new frigates for the Navy have been contracted to an Italian conglomerate in Trieste? That happened on Trump’s watch. Might be interesting for you to find out the sources of the funding to build these? But American shipyards only build Navy warships, river ships. Now how did the cops end up getting the contract for the frigates?🇺🇸

    The US has done almost 10 million tests which is is less than 4% of the US population

    • @Robo Trump What variables?

    • Alexis Kent | May 12, 2020 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      Lowest deaths.. people the US has more deaths than any where else

    • Joyce Duncan | May 12, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      60% on an English test in high school gets the grade of F. 5% of US population tested AFTER 3 MONTHS = Trump is killing us on purpose! His entire presidency – all he’s cared about has been his base. So let the killings be concentrated there. It is only fair!

    • Joyce Duncan | May 12, 2020 at 10:47 PM | Reply

      @Robo Trump dummy! we have the lowest death rate per capita BECAUSE WE’VE ONLY TESTED 2% OF THE POPULATION! Denounce Trump. Shame the devil. Save your soul.

    • Joyce Duncan | May 12, 2020 at 10:50 PM | Reply

      @Billy Anderson Pence promised 4M weekly by now – a month ago! Empty promises. More lies. Stall tactic. Just wait – help is ON THE WAY. Tomorrow never comes.

  5. We have prevailed??? WTF? Denial leads to lies. Who’s going to buy this BS?

      @Robo Trump cool your food bill will double enjoy

    • America is 34th on the nations rank of testing. Besides, massive testing should have been done at the beginning of the crises to avoid deaths.

    • Nevyn of OZ 1973 | May 12, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      @Norm Norm maybe your 34th if you ignore Europe Asia and Oceania. But your got the most corpses rotting in trucks fridges and eskies

  6. that the “South Korea VS USA” comparison is shocking to me.

    • billweir1745 | May 12, 2020 at 9:46 PM | Reply

      @Jeff Whipple The comparison is no longer relevant because South Korea has it under control, and are no longer seeing a heavy influx of new cases. Of course our testing is going to be higher now than a place that really isn’t testing anymore. The reason it was compared in the first place is because they had their first reported case on the same day that the US did. Jesus Christ how is this stuff so hard to grasp for you people.

    • Ken Roberts | May 12, 2020 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      @ON SIGHT They just did.

    • @Randy Baylen 250 deaths compared to 80, 000 I think it’s more than the food. Our colleges are free here in Scotland so is our healthcare, totally free.

    • Heart Donations | May 12, 2020 at 10:25 PM | Reply

      Why shocking? Trump cares only for himself and image.

  7. This isn’t a competition with the world……… 🤬🤬🤬🤬

    • @SouthSide Chicago It seems to me that you are the ignoramus and by the way you can cuss me all you want doesn’t change the fact that you and 45th are sailing in the same boat. Cheers.

    • Joyce Duncan | May 12, 2020 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      If it were… “America First”! We lead ALL NATIONS ON EARTH in C-19 unemployment, infections and deaths. 4x the amount of country #2! Like Trump said: “We will be so tired of winning, we will ask him to give us a break. So much winning!”

    • Anne Clausen | May 12, 2020 at 10:31 PM | Reply

      @SouthSide Chicago not per capita by far. You have tested like 2% of the population.

    • Joyce Duncan | May 12, 2020 at 10:37 PM | Reply

      @Zachary White Trump says it’s a completion all the time! “We’ve done more testing than anyone else in the world. Other countries are calling us to find out how we’ve managed to do so much.” Both LIES, of course! What really matters is:
      total population: 320M
      total tested: 4M
      % tested: 1.5%
      Dude: that’s NOTHING!
      Still nothing: 10% would be 32M. That’s 8x more than we have now!
      And the body bags keep mounting!
      And Trump supporters still stick by him until their last breath. How many of the 83,000 dead were Republicans? It’s disgusting to even think in such a way, but not to Trump. He divides us ALWAYS – even with a pandemic!

    • Joyce Duncan | May 12, 2020 at 10:41 PM | Reply

      @SouthSide Chicago the reporter asked him why can’t Americans get test like the White House can. that was the question. he went off on a tangent because you cannot defend the indefensible. Individual 1 is guilty of negligent homicide! what percentage of the 83,000 Dead would you say is his fault? 20% 50 % 80%? remember the first two months he did nothing other than Banning the Chinese. how much better a place would we be in if he had been a real leader? but according to Trump – he’s perfect; couldn’t be better; nothing could have been done sooner! a narcissist until the very end.

  8. Finally, Mitt is a Republican with courage and integrity.

      @Ardessa LD you haven’t seen that Pelosi fought to bail out corporations over workers and amd the lobbyists that fight for those businesses, over workers.

      The democrats get your money by pretending to be against Trump and the Republicans to get donations…then the side with every bill that where he asks for huge corporate funding and increases to military spending in a time of global austerity and decline in American foreign warfare.
      The democrats know you’re stupid, the republicans know their lot are stupid.
      Party means nothing, there is only one political class and it’s not blue or red it’s green.

      I’m not even an American, just lived in politics and see the extent to which the democrats exploit their supporters derangement over losing in 2016.
      Hell, W Bush is a war criminal but somehow Trump isothermal worst President? Pelosi is complicit in that. Trump ain’t bad, there’s just a lot of sore losers.

      Joanna Reyes I don’t know if you remember when Romney ran against Obama but Trump supported him and campaigned for him and then when Trump ran for president Romney came out against Trump. Romney is a deeply religious man and truthful because he had rather have to answer to Trump than have to answer to God. When he ran for president I seriously thought I would vote for him but I couldn’t stand Paul Ryan and Romney wanted to go back into the Iraq war so I didn’t vote for him.

  15. Never been a Romney type of guy but it seems like he had an experience with GOD about the truth! Wow!

  17. I can hear the Republicans now, as they sit around smirking at each other: “Over 81,000 voters dead. With luck, most of them were Democrats.”

    • Visit the Fox News website comments section and yes, they are literally saying “I hope all Democrats die”. Not very Christian of them 🙁

      @Nurse Blacke Even with the death toll being inflated, it’s still on par with the flu. It’s not a hoax; but it’s also not the Black Death you libs hoped it would be.

    • ALL the GOP seniors that I know in this Red State of Alabama are strongly committed to getting Trump and his thugs out of office…These are our backbone of society, who live and die by character, and believe that actions are backed up by their word, and that God and being a Christian means first and foremost being kind and respectful toward others (to be that shining light on the hill) and they definitely are opposed to Trump 100%.

    • @Katie Hettinger, speaking of hiding numbers, the numbers have been heavily inflated simply because any death that shares a symptom with corona can be marked as such and hospitals get more funding.
