  1. So after downplaying ignoring and waffling for 3 months its suddenly serious. Trump and fox news are mass murderers.

  2. “I knew everything” Anyone still believing this selfish jerk got something wrong with their think thing

    • Alpha 119
      You are telling people to go out & volunteer? Are you out of your mind? No hospital wants non medical staff turning up in a crisis! If anyone followed your advice, it would lead to increased infection rates. People need to follow the guidelines of hand washing, social distancing & staying away from areas that people congregate.

      News outlets report what the government is doing about this crisis & the heavy criticism of trump is warranted. He has handled this health crisis badly. Let’s hope he can turn this around & act in the best interests of the American people.

    • @Light House go back to playing with your dolls and being an ignoramus

    • Dr. Rishi Desai, chief medical officer of the Osmosis told FOX news that Trump received warnings of this virus from WHO at the end of Dec. Leave it to Trump not listen to WHO but call it all a hoax. He basically lost 3 months and maybe a quarter million lives. Even if he had been impeached like he should have I learned that Pence is no better. Pence fueled the HIV epidemic in Indiana by not acting on it immediately. Neither of them deserve the position theyre in.

      For Christians only. God is protecting children and infants during this final warning judgment. He has removed idols of money, rampant sexual immorality, clubs, bars, sports entertainment. New York is being hit very hard in this warning judgement for promoting the murder of the innocent via abortion and infanticide. The parades all cancelled and pride brought low and humbled. Pure evil and wickedness brought the world wide judgment of God as he is perfectly just and merciful waiting for people to repent of their murders (abortion) and wickedness. At some point which is now God must judge because he is just. He designed this judgement as a warning in which children and infants would not be harmed and primarily those that have lived full lives would be taken, so that people will know and reflect on their own mortality and turn back to God. This was God’s final act of love and mercy for people to have all of their idols they ignored God for removed and to return to him. God gave them alone time to reflect on their own fragileness of life and their own mortality. God gives them their very next breath on his planet. True Christians be very, very encouraged. We go home soon by rapture. Pray for those that will be left behind in the tribulation. Jesus will be their ONLY hope. What’s coming will cause men’s hearts to literally fail them for fear. It will make coronavirus look like a cold sniffle at a summer picnic. The book of Revelation in scripture has begun. John 3:16-18 . Urgently pass it on.

      @Don Johnson You get that from Infowars?

    • Must be nice to live in a country be able to say we should “string the president up” wow…I think u are the one that needs “strung up”

    • @Don Johnson tell that to the 10 dead people my wife has had to deal with in our hospital in Ontario. These are not fake deaths people that you can physically poke with you finger are not moving anymore.

  7. Trump: “As far as ventilators, some people think they need to breathe, when in reality, they don’t really need to breathe at all.”

    • @Bud Fudlacker “Although Democratic leaders and Democratic presidential candidates have been highly critical of Trump’s response to the coronavirus, we couldn’t find any examples of them directly and clearly criticizing the travel restrictions.”

      ““We don’t have a travel ban,” Klain said. “We have a travel Band-Aid right now. First, before it was imposed, 300,000 people came here from China in the previous month. So, the horse is out of the barn.””

      “As Azar explained when he announced the travel restrictions on Jan. 31, the policy prohibits non-U.S. citizens, other than the immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, who have traveled to China within the last two weeks from entering the U.S.”

    • Bud Fudlacker | April 3, 2020 at 3:43 AM | Reply

      @Dan Try Joe Biden said it was xenophobic! Other examples as well!

    • @Bud Fudlacker so one dude and now you condemn a whole group?

      I’d still like to see the source for that though

      point is also that the travel ban wasn’t actually a ban and plenty of potentially ill people (US citizens and their immediate relatives) were going back to the United States

    • @Bud Fudlacker also there were no restrictions against people from the UK and Ireland, while there were still more sick people per capita in those countries, verse some of the countries that were on the “ban” list

      That may have been the reason *whyif* Joe Biden said it was xenophobic, but you still haven’t proven that he said anything

      But that’s just a guess I really don’t know I’d like to see your sources first

    • @Bud Fudlacker “The UK and Ireland had been exempt but Mr Trump said on Saturday: “They’ve had a little bit of activity, unfortunately.””

  8. the evil of this president is mind boggling. now ny started late. you would’nt do anyrhing to help them just get tested! so this is on you. you should be charged for murder.

    • i agree but with today’s thinking of people especially the ones that eat his insane theories up and want more that would never happen. They need to get rid of the stupid in power and the followers. How to do that is that hard one.

    • @Bud Fudlacker People are dying by the thousands because the Trump Regime screwed up the testing. We have never tested for the asymptomatic carriers and we never will The Trump Regime’s failure is allowing tens of thousands of asymptomatic carriers to walk around spreading this virus like a gangland crime spree. The only TDS folk are Trumpets who are deluded beyond belief.

    • @Bud Fudlacker Projecting again? If anyone is deranged by Trump, it’s his brainwashed supporters, who look at a projected deathtoll of more than 100 times 9/11 and think “This is a great president”

  11. Ugh… this entire administration has got to go! They are all liars! What an impact due to an incompetent leader

    • Andrew Blunt hi Andrew, oh you live in England. Trust me when I say you are very fortunate not to have Trump as your leader. He’s better at foreign policy? No Andrew, he has no clear cut plan when it comes to foreign policy. Since he’s been president he’s distanced himself from our allies and courting our enemies, like Putin and Kim Jung un. He admires the way they lead and wishes he can lead America this way. He has no coherent strategy in leading this country and is so unpredictable. Constantly changing his mind in consequential decisions. His foreign policy is unpredictable. Unpredictability is his philosophy. His lack of transparency and refusal to listen to experts regarding this pandemic is why things got this bad when it didn’t need to be. We are leading this pandemic. US is now the epic center because we are short in testing kits, protective gears, ventilators…i mean this only happens in third world country. He’s been promising that every American will be able to get a test and there’s shortage on tests that you will have to be literally on your death bed to be able to get tested. He’s taken this country so backwards. Then he resisted on invoking the defense production act which would’ve had every manufacturing companies to make PPE and ventilators, until the very last minute. He places importance on the oddest things. He stated governors need to be more appreciative! Like what??? He’s so busy complimenting himself, he really has a mental capacity of a 5th grader. Listen I can go on and on in his incompetency but you’re right how does that help this situation now. I’m just praying people will wake up and realize he failed and we cannot put him back in the office 2020

    • Andrew Blunt | April 3, 2020 at 11:07 AM | Reply

      @J K Hi, my intuition is telling me you don’t like Trump very much 🙂 I think your situation is a bit different than in Europe, because your different States have allot of power, to regards to how you can respond. In Europe we obviously have smaller countries to govern so having a clear policy is allot easier. Like shutting down England is allot easier than shutting down the whole of the USA.
      I know that Trump has his advisors, I’ve been keeping up to date with your health secretary Dr Faltchy I think his name is (sorry).. and I just think the responsibility is not all on Trumps shoulders. This is a very complex situation for everyone, more so for poorer nations who won’t be able to shut down the economy, and if you shut down the economy for too long it could do more harm than good, so this is quite complex, especially when we don’t really know what we are dealing with.

    • Andrew Blunt I am willing to concede where you are coming from I you are willing to concede that there are proofs that he’s been advised by his advisors and her ignored it. Trump does what trump wants. He’s not a leader by definition and has proven that time and time again. But especially during this time, he proves again and again that he is incompetent. Good luck to you in England. God bless

    • Andrew Blunt | April 3, 2020 at 1:50 PM | Reply

      @J K One thing I want to say JK.. Is that it’s very easy to place blame after something has happened. I think Trumps handling of this equals any leader in Europe. You mentioned people have died that didn’t have too, but I think it’s unrealistic to expect America would be sparred, to be honest I believe this is just the beginning of the pandemic, I don’t believe the world will be the same for a couple of years or more. In Italy they took it lightly, then 2 weeks later before they had time to respond, almost 1000 people die everyday, people are starving there too. I understand your dislike of Trump in general, and yes I concede he could have listened to people better. I’m actually perplexed that you don’t have a national shut down, is that correct ? ..the place I live we are not allowed to leave our house, unless it’s for exercise, or if you have a job that’s classed as essential. But as I mentioned before, your State’s have allot of power, so perhaps in a political way you can’t easily shut down like Europe. God bless you too, I hope you and your family stay safe.

    What did we learned in the past few months of the pandemic:

    – We learned that the government was not ready to face it
    – We learned that Prez told the nation to ignore it
    – We learned that he told the nation to expect 250.000 deaths
    – We learned that he could not provide the country with medical protection and equipment
    – We learned from Fox TV that lies and misinformation are normal freedom expressions
    – We also know that Prez will never be find legally responsible for the consequences

    In short, Americans should finally stop criticizing autocratic, communist and other undemocratic leaders in the world. To critize others, one has to earn the right to do it.

    • We learned that when the President stopped the Chinese carriers of the virus from entering the country you and your friends called him a “racist xenophobe”! Uninformed fools! Do you even know that the rest of the world is dying, and our mortality rate is by far the lowest because of quick and powerful responses? Or are you just mad because your party was interrupted?

    • ..him or any other President…. it would have been the same. Stop pointing fingers and do your part. That’ s all we can do.

      @Anthony Ramos This message applies to Christians only as they are the ones that believe on the Son of God and Jesus Christ. Salvation in eternal heaven and rapture only applies to true Christians. This why Jesus came. Christians believe there is no name given other than Jesus that can save them. There aren’t many ways to heaven, and thus those who believe there are this message doesn’t apply to them. This doesn’t apply to those who reject Jesus Christ as the son of God, that’s why I was addressing only Christians in this urgent message. So that they may help seek out those that will be believe in Jesus who we as Christians believe is the only way to heaven. Peace to you.
