      @Leticia Serrata Nothing you wrote was true.
      1. The blame belongs to Wuhan for not containing the virus, just like the H1N1 virus that NOBODY blamed Obama for. This is easily looked up online.
      2. The experts are already handling this pandemic, everything that can be done is being done, the ‘unneeded loss of life’ went from estimates of 2.2 million dead all the way down to 60,000 dead, the current projection, because Trump enacted a travel ban that nobody is giving him credit for, in fact, he was called a racist.
      3. Trump is not a doctor, he can’t prescribe meds and he NEVER told people to take a medication, and if somebody does illegally take meds without a prescription, without a doctors care, that person is the one to blame.
      4. He pointed out a well know malaria drug that shows promise, and began to stockpile and produce it, just in case. And guess what? Its saving lives all over the planet, countries are hoarding it now. Will Trump get credit for saving lives? No. Just hate from people lacking facts, and thinking with their feels instead.

      Why don’t you already know this stuff? Are you only listing to CNN for facts? I can understand why if that’s the case.

      @Chas Stack You voted for Crooked Hillary? Can she run the country from a prison cell? Really?

      You have to make up your mind here. Do you hate Donald Trump because he’s mean to snowflakes and speaks his mind plainly, unlike professional politicians? If so, thats a personal problem no body can help you with. Or do you hate conservative values of a strong border with a fair immigration policy, a strong capitalist economy with generous social programs as a safety net, and defeating ISIS and terrorism? Are you willing to give up freedom, for free stuff from Bernie-style Socialism/Communism?

    • The Paladin 👍🇺🇸🇺🇸 that’s Trump !!!

  2. The most important thing now, is making sure he is shown the door in November. Before he and his cult get us all killed.

    Trump is right about fake news! Fake news is every time he opens his mouth it’s fake news, or a lie, same thing.

      @Matthew Galter loool “do you know science?” hahahaha do you know how to use punctuation or sentence structure? evidently not. I’m sure you are sharp as a needle and really do see through the “lies” though. *face palm* pleeease tell us you are trolling us

      @steve reyna And what if it never does go away?

    • in Trumps imaginary wonderland, remember people he has a mind of a 12 yr old.

      but meanwhile how many love ones did FAMILY’S lose to this virus. and a lot of elderly has passed away. so what was the target. to not act right away.
      a lot of politicians had money withdrawals out of the stock markets. just remember that.
      the elites had known about this virus. follow the directions of the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. and who is going to be hit the hardest when it comes down to paying taxes.

    Trump: I’m not responsible. Me: Your correct for once in your life, your very very VERY IRRESPONSIBLE.

    • PK Cazadores | April 9, 2020 at 9:39 PM | Reply

      Medical supply manufacture had left the country when Obama placed unusually high taxes on them to help fund Obamacare. This is why the US had a temporary shortage of supplies. Trump has done everything right, and you know it.

    • PK Cazadores, that was awful patriotic of them.

    • nonsense. the virus is responsible. revolting how you look for political advantage in a time of great crisis. shame on you.

      @PK Cazadores madness

    • Kevin NYC, I guess you would be blaming a deflectable asteroid for hitting us too if we squandered our time and resources yelling fake news. Grow up.

    From overseas. I was wondering who trump would blame for his incompetence. Surprise: Not Obama but the WHO.

    • Nabil Ahmad Siddiqui | April 9, 2020 at 11:17 PM | Reply

      Technically, he did blame Obama initially for the testing debacle. I wouldn’t be surprised if at some point he blames the victims themselves saying “They were warned but they did not listen, I predicted this pandemic all along”.

    • For the most part…screw the WHO, that the only part I agree with. They lied but who cares I never trusted them to begin with. He had his own experts here.

    • Shiva Krishnan | April 11, 2020 at 3:17 AM | Reply

      He is blaming Obama as well. And his supporters are spreading that nonsense.

    • actually he blamed news reporters, medical staffs, Obama, EU, China, WHO, Taiwan…

    • And the governor of every state

    Of course his team can not handle this because he seems to fire anyone with competence because they might outshine him.

    The ugly obese oompa loompa will never take responsibility.

  14. Italian here , After Berlusconi I thought I’d seen everything , I was wrong .

    • Berlusconi was bad, cadet bonespurs is worse.

    • Doug Wochna Berlusconi fortunately did not have to deal with a pandemic , cadet bone spurs seems the worst US president in history to deal with the worst trouble of the last 100 yrs

      @Ness H You cant CLAIM that Trump supporters on on the wrong side of history, just because we are on one side and not the other. You have to compare conservative, America first, capitalist thought to NAZI’s .. who were socialists. Looks like your analogy instantly failed to launch. Then may I borrow it and point out the Socialist Democratic party is well aligned with the gun confiscating NAZI party?

      @Ness H trump2020 haters gonna hate :p

    • LMAO, I think you got Obama,s gang mixed up with Trump

  17. He should blame his voters.

    • Ann Marie Boucher | April 12, 2020 at 11:52 PM | Reply

      That’s right everything is the voter’s fault. That pesky virus is a voter generated virus that aims at wiping out poor president t RUMP’s chances of winning in 2020. It’s literally a democratic hoax like he said. Everyone that died from it is a hoax too. GOP all the way.

    • @Ann Marie Boucher No, it was the Russians or maybe it was the chipmunks. Let’s just blame the Kardashians too. I bet you think the earth is flat too.

  18. When you cannot take the responsibility of your actions, you blame the rest for it. That is Trump.

  19. Trump’s the type of person who will blame his own mama.

  20. “I don’t take any responsibility. ”
    although President Trump talks a lot, this is still one of his best statements.
