Tonight’s press conference will finish him

Now talking about the cure is worse than the problem/virus
Meaning we can’t just let the economy die because people are dying!

Confirmed psychopath

Trumps been finished since before winning the election going by posts on here.

Add this to history of all the posts saying he’s finished, won’t last 2 years, won’t last a term, won’t get re elected etc.

I'm not saying he's finished. But he said back on the 22nd Jan it was only one person and it was under control. Testing kits didn't work and it took 16 days to find out why. He banned the Chinese but didn't stop Europeans until 15th March.
He has down played it all along, suggested non-tested drugs and flu/malaria medications would work. He said it would be over when the weather got better. He said it would be over soon. He said everyone could have a test who wanted a test. He has been unashamed in his motivation-bad economy=won't win second term. That's why he's talking about relaxing social distancing today. States are having to do it themselves without much Federal support.
The figures from the US health protection agency the Center for Disease and Control prevention in terms of the increase of the disease suggest that up to 50% of Americans will get it without social distancing and 1 million ventilators would then be needed. They currently have 170,000. People like strong leaders at times of crisis. They don't respond well to mixed messages and the Mayor of Amity who tonight is suggesting the economy is more important than people's lives.
Now he still has an approval rating of how he's done at 50%. But many people would stand in a tub of s hit to support Trump. But 140,000 Californians alone signed on today. 40,000 last week. It's usually 2000. If his approach results in high unemployment (Goldman Sachs worst case scenario is 20% by the end of the year) his goose will be well and truly cooked. It's the economy, stupid.

Inter — last time I checked California is run by Gavin Newsom — a devoted liberal who enacted the total shutdown of the state — Trump can’t authorize that — if he did he’d have to go through congress and basically order a federal war mandate. Newsom on the other hand did this himself — no Congress to authorize his political agenda he (right or wrong) authorized it himself— but he can do that as he has no opposition— California is basically a one party state. I would say this though — I can’t believe the people of this fine state allow — I mean what has happened to democracy — is the people that allow its political leaders to take liberties or is it the people are so damn lazy and stupid that they just can’t be assed to question Newsom’s authority — I really don’t understand people’s reasoning today — and to think this country fought for independence because of taxation.

Seems very preoccupied with himself and his money at tha moment. Oh and how badly Obama ran the country.

The man is not a leader, he's a greedy selfish XXXXXX with no empathy at all for the people of the nation.

The USA need someone from the left field to take a step forward to lead them. Not this obnoxious, self obsessed to55er

Chances are if Trump gets coronavirus, it might well see him off. That might be the only thing that will make his supporters realise he's not the messiah.

Yes

But it gets better

"However, neither of the 1,000-patient ships are ready to go anywhere. Both are currently in-port undergoing maintenance work and lack medical crews. It will likely take weeks, before both ships set off to their destinations. And even when the floating hospitals do arrive at their berths, they will not be taking on COVID-19 patients."

He’s mentioned those ships before. They’re currently under going routine maintenance and it was suggested by him it will be days but it’s apparently going to be weeks until the maintenance is complete.

And yet his approval rating has never been higher. Among independents he's at 60% approval for how he's handling the crisis.

Be interesting to see how his mooted plan to reverse restrictions after 15 days to restart the economy goes down.

As usual his sychophantic surrogates are already rallying support for the idea that millions should be put in harm's way in for the sake of the stock market and Trump's reelection campaign. One suspects it's no coincidence that the current numbers of infections are high in the more populous states like California and New York who wont vote for Trump anyway.

Take a look at the spread of the virus in the US. While New York, Washington state and California are in trouble. Most of the other states aren't so bad.

You wouldn't lock down France because Romania had an epidemic.

Wyoming has 22 cases and it's thousands of miles away from New York. Now they have good testing, they could test and isolate patients within a few weeks.

By monitoring traffic into Wyoming (not that difficult), the state could be back to normal by the April date Trump suggested. And it is just a goal. He likes to give people a positive message.

Most of what Trump says is outlier statements from his experts. I doubt he comes up with this stuff on his own. He'll have asked what is the best case scenario; they'll have given him a 3,000 word nuanced expose on public health; and he'll announce a goal of an April 12th end date.

The newspaper I read had that story. It was up for a couple of hours and then removed.

Just because sodium chloride is used to season our food, doesn't mean we should eat sodium. It certainly wouldn't be a good idea.

As it happens Hydroxychloroquine is showing great promise and trials have started in New York. We should know fairly quickly if it's going to work.

A fair sign it may work is the fact most countries have locked down their supply of the drug, and the price has gone through the roof meaning that people who take the drug for malaria or lupus etc. are having a hard time getting hold of it.

It is true that some people get significant side effects from the drug.

"And yet his approval rating has never been higher."

Isn't this merely a result of the fact the worst hit areas in the US at present are mostly, if not all, Democrat states - NY, California, Washington, New Jersey, Illinois

You missed the "among independents". Truth is his approval is 49%. Apparently that's ok in US terms.

Health is a state responsibility. Governors blaming Trump is not a great idea. He can't make them buy equipment.

And they really shouldn't say anything about him unless they're sure of themselves because he always bites back.

Cuomo complains about ventilators, and Trump turns round and says Cuomo rejected a 15,000 ventilator order at reasonable prices offered by the Feds a few years ago. There was probably a really good reason, but the sound bite still hits home.

It puts into scale the UK's problem. I understand the NHS has 5,900 ventilators. The US Feds just shipped 4,000 ventilators to New York from their stockpiles.

As an aside did anybody catch Nihal Arthurnayeke show on BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday afternoon. He interviewed John Niven who is a Scottish author and whose latest novel is about a Post Trumpist world.

Frank comments on Trump.

But if he gets it and survives, they actually will proclaim him as the messiah

I agree with all of the above but he does have an exit strategy and that was to appoint mike pence in total of handling the control of corona virus crisis.

So when it does go tits up it won’t be the don who goes under the bus.

US President Donald Trump has said he hopes the US will shake off coronavirus by Easter, even as New York's governor sounded the alarm that the illness is spreading faster than "a bullet train".
The president told a White House news briefing reopening the US early next month would be "a beautiful timeline".


He said he wants to see churches packed on Easter.
