Trump Reportedly Briefed On COVID-19 Threat Repeatedly In January, February, But Ignored It | MSNBC


According to reporting in the Washington Post, intelligence agencies warned President Donald Trump more than dozen times in the first two months of this year that coronavirus posed a global threat.

Trump Reportedly Briefed On COVID-19 Threat Repeatedly In January, February, But Ignored It | MSNBC


  1. trump said 3 million people would have died if not for him. Any number under that and trump thinks he’s a hero.

    1. @Chris trump made a restrictive travel ban with China that still allowed 40,000 people to travel. Face it, trump is stupid and so are you for believing what he says.

    2. @Long Range Rifle Putin already owns us because of trump. He co-signed loans trump had with German banks.

    3. @Chris What has trump done besides lie and give trillions to corporations. Got your peanuts cheque with trump’s signature on it ?

    4. I still remember him saying, only 15 cases altho by that time, there was already 60 cases & no deaths.
      *soon to be zero and will miraculously disappear!!
      *1 month later, calling it a dem hoax!!! Don jr shouting it at the roof top.
      *Today, almost 62,000 DEATHS and over a mil cases & counting.
      *Now – Trump, if we are under 2mil were doing a great job.
      I predicted the goal post will keep moving to suit his narrative & it is.

    5. And I was sure he said it would be zero. They have it under control. This does not sound like fake news.

    1. @J M M what do you care you don’t pay taxes loser. USMCA. Now go find someone’s opinion about that and unlike you I have a job stop expecting me to reply to some losers comment

    2. @chip Robertson You, sir are the loser. You are as pathetic as Trump. No facts. Name calling and insults. You are the poorly educated that Trump loves because you refuse to admit that you were ignorant enough to think a con man gave a crap about you. Ignorance IS NOT a desirable trait, sir.

    1. brian dwiggins

      Tells people not to spew false narratives….
      Meanwhile, his first comment…

      Such a loser. Sad.

    1. Here’s a rather sad scientific fact:
      In 2012 Dr. Hodson and Dr. Busseri conducted a correlational study that confirms the thesis that 𝐥𝐨𝐰𝐞𝐫 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 in childhood is predictive of greater 𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐦 in adulthood, with this effect being mediated through conservative ideology.
      In plain English: The 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭 𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐲 is quite simply 𝐛𝐨𝐫𝐧 stupid.

  2. If briefings dont fit his master plan of being king of America, he will ignore it and make up anything that his brain dead supporters will believe.

    1. Gabe Dudley how about we google what trump was doing after he found out about the first deaths n the U.S? I’ll give you a hint……he was golfing.

    1. @myko freder As soon as Trump tried to shut down travel, commie democRATS were screaming racism and it’s not necessary.

  3. Why would anyone even remotely expect the slightest degree of competence out of Donald Trump? He has a lifetime track record of destroying just about everything he touches.

    1. Hazel McCloy no we don’t get your fraudulent crap news , we have our own Blah Blah Blah Blah. Go Trump 2020 best economic jobs President in modern history!!

    1. @ariadne stark Toxic? Hateful? Maybe you should look at yourself in the mirror! Most of the toxicity is coming from conservative groups and Donald Trump himself. We’re not the ones disobeying the stay at home order, waving Donald Trump and Confederate flags. We’re not the ones carrying rifles and hurling racial slurs at health care workers.

  4. He must be held accountable for neglecting his main and foremost responsibility…to protect the lives of the American people.

    1. Molly Dillon just because someone is calling out your righteous indignation of reality and facts doesn’t make them a troll. Take your pathetic misguided hatred of libs and goback to whatever alternate reality you came from. We are moving forward without conservative domestic terrorists.

  5. GOP: the party of personal irresponsibility. They keep whining and complaining about personal responsibility but when they have to take responsibility they run for cover And Trump outruns them all, bone spurs and all

    1. All during Obama’s tenure they told us daily they had morals, family values, respect for law and order, loved the constitution and the biggest lie of all. They are fiscal conservatives. Sadly people still vote for these liars.

      4)EVELYN DE rothschild
      12)BEN SHALOM

    3. C W
      Bwahahaha. The GOP are the biggest users of the federal welfare system. They just tramp people like you down into believing they’re fiscally conservative. Research it brother/sister

    1. @suny test any more of trump we’ll be done . he has no idea what he’s doing. Come on you can see that!

    1. @David berman Trisha is correct. You are a pea brain for believing faux news or believing what rump says is true.Show me how she is wrong.

    2. @Twoofer Derper race not the point fool the point is when this inept started to acting on the problem and that is because we suffering now

    1. Grim Reefer with all the “likes” you have, it proves MSNBC viewers are just imbeciles like you.
      Go smoke another blunt and think of a one-liner that sounds good so you can get some more “likes”

    2. @Deplorable Why are you trolling? Do you believe you are going to persuade others to go down the rabbit hole of doom with Trump or are you just being a typical Trump supporter jerk?

    3. Not a different one just a more intense one. He’s more incompetent than one would even think was presumable.

  6. The President didn’t do his homework. Is anybody surprised? Tens of thousands have died because of this ignorance.

    1. @Long Range Rifle Dude, You don’t know me from Adam, and you’re telling people to drop dead and die on the internet??? We’re all in this together, or should be. For your information, I’m a retired MD and I have volunteered to help out in a local hospital with COVID patients. What have you done to help people in your life besides aspiring internet Troll?

    2. The Problem with Donald Trump is that He doesn’t like reading Reports
      But loves talking a lot of rubbish !! Lol

    3. TheBestWayOne Obama literally warned us and set up a task force to handle this and trump ………disbanded it.

    1. Mind your own business your people started this virus you moron how about you all stop mistreating my African brothers

    2. zeke c and black are still the most effected here,your anger is pointed in the wrong direction. Anti blackness is a global issue,but we’re literally dying right now.

    3. @roisin culler Pelosi is evil and lier Pelosi and hilary is more evil and lier and Obama is more more evil and lier

  7. Trump did not care who dies or how many…He was protecting Wall Street and his Re-election.
    The Devil Incarnate playing Golf

    1. Philip Teague, okay, he stopped folks from entering the U.S…HERE’S MY QUESTION, PLEASE EXPLAIN TO US, WHAT ESLE DID HE DO????? NOTHINGGGGGG. Take your head out of the sand and stop calling people “moron”, okay?????
