President Donald Trump Explains And Finally Admits To Intentionally Hiding The Risk Of COVID-19 In The US

US President Donald Trump recently admitted he had sought to mitigate the threat related to the SARS-CoV-2 virus during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an interview with US journalist Bob Woodward on March 19, President Trump confirmed that he always wanted to ease the epidemic situation to avoid causing more confusion and fear among the people.

In previous interviews with journalist Woodward, President Donald Trump asserted that he understood the danger of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and knew it was more dangerous than the regular flu. However, to reassure public opinion, he has repeatedly made claims to reduce the level and risk. It was not until July that the American leader wore a mask when it appeared in public.

According to statistics site worldometers.info, the United States is currently the country with the highest number of infections and deaths in the world with more than 6.5 million infections and more than 195,000 deaths caused by COVID-19.

The number of deaths in the US is forecast to soon exceed 200,000. President Trump has repeatedly confirmed that he has successfully controlled the disease, when he soon issued a travel ban from China - where the first outbreak and hot spots in Europe were.

However, recent opinion polls show that about 67% of Americans polled expressed dissatisfaction with his decision.

In response to this news, Eastern New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy said he would have had the state shut down earlier to contain the epidemic if President Trump did not mitigate the severity of COVID-19.

He emphasized that if he soon knew that the SARS-CoV-2 virus was capable of spreading through the air like President Trump, he would take more stringent measures to control the disease, such as requiring people to mask and stay indoors. , thereby reducing the damage caused by the disease.

Meanwhile, White House communications secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that President Trump did not want to lie about COVID-19, but he just wanted to show his composure to reassure people.
