      darknite 123222 the Coronavirus doesn’t recognize party loyalties, race, gender, age or economic backgrounds. If the Democrats did anything to help this come about you should be thankful because Trump downplayed this for months and more Democrats and Republicans will both die because of it.

    • Yes, and because he didn’t respond to it back then, all the major sports leagues had no other choice but to stop playing.
      Trump took my sports leagues away from me!
      He needs to pay for this, and be voted out in November.

    • @R McElhaney – He now has an excuse to Cancel the Election.

  7. We’ve had a national emergency since 2016!!!

    • William H Music 2020 | March 13, 2020 at 1:04 PM | Reply

      HOMOSEXUALITY was around long before 2016.

    • A total of 31 National Emergencies were in effect in 2019 and I think still are.

    • Cornelius Vath | March 15, 2020 at 10:10 AM | Reply

      Yeah, the fake news tards are dumber than ever and believing even stupider things than ever. Fakes news has been bringing us Idiocracy since 2016. Most you gullible hater/loser clowns will still be believing it when Trump is president of a roaring economy in 2025.

  8. We have been in a ‘National Emergency’ since this dangerous derelict and it’s minions took office.

      @Rip Torn LOL! Man, you guys lead such sad little lives. None of it matters, and neither do you. You are, and always will be insignificant, and until you come to terms with that, happiness and your true potential will forever elude you. Keep running that circle though buddy, you’ll catch your tail sooner or later! LOL!

    • Sugar_ Binge | March 13, 2020 at 6:47 PM | Reply

      Star Gazer TRUE!! Didn’t DRUMPF dismantled All of OBAMA achievements and they still blame him after 3 years. Their DEAR LEADER can do NO WRONG!!! Their BRAINS 🧠 are cooked with TRUMPISM. We just call them CULTS.

    • Star Has their been any reports of Coronovirus outbreaks within the US military/Navy? With such tight quarters they are/have to be in it must be a a major concern ?

    • @Douglas Goldstein : I dispute part of that statement Sir!!!President Obama wasn’t on the course, golfing… He was on the court ballin’ when Americans were dying of the swine flu!!!! Get your facts right,dammit!!!!

    This should have happened weeks ago in my opinion Also, 40 Billion might seem like allot but I hope this is not a two little, too late type of situation.

  10. No way. Fist he said it was a hoax. Then he said Democrats were exaggerating and politicizing it. After that he said that his administration is doing a great job and there is no need to panic because he had everything under control. This week he blamed Obama for it and now this. November hurry up please!

      @Michael Thompson choosing between trump and biden is like choosing between two smelly turds they both stink . Bernie or bust .

    • Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen | March 13, 2020 at 4:11 PM | Reply

      Its no one to blame, but Thanos inevitable cutting the population in half.

    • @Armando van Haaren :Bernie is like diarrhea…so bust.

    • @Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen : It looks like only by 6 to 7 % right now.But look how much we’ll be saving on social security!

    • Stay very vigilant. He is infuriated. This type of reprobate individual refuses to lose. He’s willing to fail all day but not lose. He will do any and everything possible to stop the elections so that he can stay in power and his supporters will let him.

  11. But he said it was a hoax!

    • @Kram Snave There was no “hoax” period, MAGgot hat. He calls anything inconvenient a “hoax,” including climate change and Russian interference in our elections, and those are every bit as real as this virus.

    • @William Bailey Yes, he did. Let’s quote him: “And this [the coronavirus] is their new hoax.” There was no “hoax” here period, no matter how FOX “News” tries to spin his irresponsible and inaccurate statements.

    • Maybe, but Trump is not gifted with enough intelligence to string together an understandable sentence for the American people to comprehend. His staff or news people constantly have to run it back to try to figure out what he “really” was trying to say. This is not acceptable for an American president.

    • William Bailey | March 13, 2020 at 6:06 PM | Reply

      @Allan Burns actually he was referring to the dems trying to use the virus as a political weapon was a hoax. Not the virus. Try actually watching the press conferences and rallies if you want to hear what was actually said, instead of relying on MSM propaganda videos which are deliberately cut and chopped to keep you ignorant. I’m just surprised you clowns haven’t figured this out yet. And yes, fox does the same thing.

    • And he said his taking responsibility like a true fake president🤦‍♂️

  12. A little late. The National Emergency occurred the day he took office.

  13. Surprised the Republicans aren’t uttering the word SOCIALISM after this…Hypocrites!!

      @Beautiful Soul What about Obama? I voted for him twice. He was supposed to fix climate change and racism, but 8 years later everything is worse, people are saying racism is worse than ever, the inner cities are filthy slums, and Obama is blowing $15M cash on extra houses in the Hamptons. Read Candace Owens’ “Blackout” and stop being a cheap wast vote for corrupt Democrats.

      @Beautiful Soul I know the difference between capitalism, socialism, and communism already, and I’m familiar with their histories. Learned it all in college long ago. So I don’t really need to google it. But here is a fun fact few people know. Nazi is an acronym for (in English): National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Kind of the same thing the far left Dems are running under. But I’m not interested in that.

  14. Dude declared a National Emergency over Terrifs and the Border wall.

    It took him MONTHS to declare an emergency over an actual emergency … SMH.

    Two months ago, Trump declared that the virus was a hoax. Now, he’s declaring it a National Emergency. Think about that.

    • Philip Clarke | March 15, 2020 at 7:59 PM | Reply

      @W TF? So you’re saying that his response to this was timely and decisive?

    • Philip Clarke | March 15, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      @statesmanuel No he hasn’t….he turned down the WHO when they offered test kits, he said that he preferred to keep the numbers low, he kept saying it was a hoax. That is not responsible leadership. Trump is incompetent and he lies too much..👆trump

    • @Philip Clarke… What I’m saying is, the Democrats are a bunch of hateful scum, that deserve exactly what they’re getting right now.
      Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders. LOL

    • @W TF? Actually, all parties aside, nobody deserves what this virus is doing, killing friends, family, loved ones etc… it doesn’t take sides, so instead of wishing harm and possibly the end of someone’s life to others not on your side how about you try to grow up, shut up, and try to talk about something positive or funny or god forbid kind. If it’s not possible for you than maybe just don’t comment, nobody wants to read or see it right now. At the very least, keep politics out of it, we’re all just trying to get through this.

    • @Jade Mayer … First off, I didn’t wish harm on anyone!
      All I said was, the Dirty Delusional Democrats deserve what they get.
      Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders. LOL
      That is not wishing harm on anyone, unless you think Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders will harm them.
      The only harm I see, is that these two clowns harm the Dirty Delusional Democrats chances at winning anything.
      So, STFU Jade Mayer!

    I don’t understand, I thought this was a democrat hoax????

    • Trump claimed his Democratic Party critics were were ginning up another hoax against him when they pointed out how his 2018 budget cuts to the CDC and NIH, Trump’s dissolving the pandemic response team, and Trump’s turning down the WHO’s offer for test kits. Trump did all that but just like when Mueller caught him obstructing justice and the whistle blower caught him asking a foreign power for political help, Trump calls it a hoax.
      The pattern is pretty clear. If Trump calls anything a hoax, it must be true.

    We’ve been in a state of national emergency since 2016, when the inmates started running the asylum, the government is utterly unable to handle this, or any other crisis

    • Mark Bertholomey | March 13, 2020 at 3:13 PM | Reply

      Curious to see how the Trump,s and Kueshner,s capitalize on the deaths of poor Americans??? I know they are definitely working the angles!

  19. Didn’t he say to stay calm? He would not have done anything if the stock market did not plummet.
