  1. He said it was a hoax.

    • @Bellicose Ataraxia Obama said Hi from Aruba snowflakes

    • Dave Ponsford | March 13, 2020 at 6:14 AM | Reply

      Gregg Because Trump called it a hoax, also told people to spread the virus and has contradicted the experts at every opportunity. Shutting down travel is pointless, always is when you can’t stop Americans returning home. Trump has proven to be NOTHING BUT INCOMPETENT, its sad that you cult members know how Trump is such a pathetic Snowflake, you have to pretend otherwise. I would have liked Trump to have taken this seriously from the start, instead of his lies and self pity. I would like him to show concern for the American people and not himself only.

    He should have had 100 million masks manufactured a week after China quarantined 70 million people. He is a week president, he doesn’t deserve his position

      Masks don’t protect you from the Corona virus it prevents people from getting other people sick like a person with cancer or a person with a very bad immune system that’s why they wear masks in surgery in hospitals not for themselves but it for others if you don’t believe me look it up you would need a full body suit to help you buying masks are a wastes of money.

    He speaks like he’s as bored as I am listening to him!

  5. He sounds like a robot or someone who is doing this under force not because he wants too absolutely no emotion what so ever.

  6. He always blaming someone – dam aren’t we tired if this

      Ginelle Day quit pointing out his strong qualities. 😂

    • Tanner Shortnacy | March 12, 2020 at 10:18 PM | Reply

      Ginelle Day I know for a fact it was an attempt to get the repubs out of the White House. If you can’t see that your blind and dumb.

    • Jazzie Red Your opinion of what is extremism is actually independent critical thinking. The Far Left & the Far Right actually question power, we don’t bow down to it.

    • @Tanner Shortnacy If those are the attributes you want in someone then you don’t want much. In that case you picked the best loser out there. The most dispicable person on the planet you idolize. There is no hope for you if you don’t get the big picture. There are none so ignorant as those who choose not to learn. Someone who says they never do anything wrong believe him. He part truth as he never does anything. The entire populace of the earth excluding his cult members know what a clown he is and how stupid. And yet his minority still don’t get it wow you are in the minority be proud to have a moron represent you. He is only in this for himself and no one else. Eventually he’ll kick all his sheep to the curb. Why can’t any of you mention one thing he has achieved other than break all laws use and lose his so called friends. He has fired more people he claimed were his friends and he hired. Yes thats how you treat your friends. God help this country. You might try reading history books before it’s to late. He’s turning Americans against each other not working together to better our country thats not what Presidents are suppose to do. But then he wants to be luke Hitler or Chinas and Russias he is an egotistical maniac.

    • Tired enough to remove him in the 2020 Elections.

  7. This has to be absolutely demoralizing for a con-man like Trump. He’s use to running businesses and casinos into the ground, and then filing for bankruptcy and sneaking out the back door before anyone knows what happened.

    Without test kits, we have NO IDEA how many infected people we already have here in the US!

    • you wanna test 320 million people?
      yer outta yer mind.
      if you tested 100,000 a day it would take 3,200 days or 10 FRIKKIN YEARS!!!
      & that’s if you got the results back the same day.
      & then what??

      45 million have had flu since october & 45,000 have died …….& no one cares.

      it’ll all be over in a coupla months & we will say “WTF were we thinking”????

      ok show me one country that has test or other kits? None, they all rob us blind,

  9. Trump speaking in his hostage voice he always uses when he’s forced to say words written by others that he doesn’t really mean.

    • COVID 19 has taken the Moron hostage. Trump said the virus has treated him unfairly.
      He knows he may not survive–he talks like that because NOW HE IS SCARED.

      sasha dlg President poopy pants Von bone spurs can’t use his bullying cowardice on a virus which he’ll get if he hasn’t already!

      Doug E He is being forced to read the prompter. Why do you think he’s snorking towards the end of his speech? He can’t STAND being told what to do.

      @Doug E I never thought of it that way, but yeah, dead on….

    trump sure is skilled at the talking like a vegetable……..

  11. Trump’s message is full of SELF-PRAISE, full of BLAMING (Europe), still DOWNPLAYING the danger. Poor message.

  12. dont know why he is talking…citizens dont believe one word he says…

  13. Victor Robinson | March 12, 2020 at 1:00 AM | Reply

    Reading is Fundamental…… he never mastered it.

  14. Somebody must have told him forcefully to just read the teleprompter and not stray off into his usual incoherent rambling. He looks scared, now that he knows this isn’t a hoax.

    • S H thank you! I’ve been looking 🙏🏾

    • BeBop Aloola thank you! Appreciate you.

  15. A flat, uninspiring, and confusing speech…..

  16. What’s sad is that he had help writing that speech and that’s the best they could do! China won this Trade war.

      China devoted their entire government resources to control this virus.
      We are at war with it.
      It requires immediate actions to keep it from spreading uncontrolled throughout the population. Short term economic losses are nothing compared to the catastrophic loss of life that will result from the failure to acknowledge the situation and deploy testing on a massive scale immediately.The orange one is still focused on blaming others, suppression of evidence, and the economy. Many people will suffer and die because of this.

      “We’ll see your trade war and raise you a global pandemic.” Remember, this is the guy who “ran” a casino and didn’t know the rules of craps.

  17. First it was a democratic hoax, then it was the media’s fault, then he and his admin claimed it was contained, he disagreed with all the experts, claimed he knew more about coronavirus than the experts did, claimed it would miraculously disappear.. now he tries to act like he has done something good.. what morons he, his admin, the entire GOP, fox conspiracy channel and their uneducated viewers are

      Uhhhh, we didn’t all vote him in genius, but he is all of our problem.

      Most people voted for Hillary by a healthy margin, the electoral college BS bit us in the butt.

      So don’t lump us all together, that just makes you look like a fool. Many of us fought this, don’t get it twisted.

      Trump supporters should be ashamed and we shouldn’t forgive or forget them. They are worse than Trump, they enabled and allowed it.

      I agree! Only I didn’t vote for Donald the Clown. Doesn’t he sound a little winded? Donald should be tested.

    • @Bellicose Ataraxia Get help.

    • Most of us in the US voted for the intelligent choice – Trump lost the popular vote. It’s our Electoral College that put this criminal into our White-House.

      We’re going to do our best through our votes to remove him and as many of his cronies in 2020.

      Bellicose Ataraxia if your comment is trying to defend and push the blame onto the journalists then you are either deluded or not very intelligent. Trump has been lying to your face about this virus outbreak and is more concerned with saving face, the economy and blaming others including Obama.

    • Yawns…sorry,i had a weird dream about butt kissers?and jails,no joke!!🤢 now i get this🤣🤣🤣🤣i need food.gosh the aTrumpets are even TALKING LIKE IT😆😆Bless yas.but one day yall look back and cringe 100/per cent.s.Good luck America, i dont mean to rude at all!!👍🤗🤗

    • I think it would be a good idea to test a few people in the USA before blaming everyone else, France and Germany were about to ban people traveling from the USA because of the lack of testing so this is just a preemptive strike to save face. The genie is out of the bag now so it is far more important to work together across the world to slow down the rate of infection and allow the medical facilities some chance. There are only one hospital bed for every 3250 people in the USA if only ten percent of people get this virus in the next month or two and 12 percent need to be hospitalised that is c. 36 people per bed , any reasonable person would be worried but of course we are all over reacting, time to stop playing politics and lead .

    • @LadyJAtheist nope.Trumpet infected, and he selects his wannabes butt kissers.dont ask how i know 😚😚📢🤣

    • @nsgkuaov i agree.x
