Donald Trump was caught admitting that he lessened the blow of coronavirus to the people that is he lied about the real danger of the virus.
Audio of him talking to Bob Woodward admitting to coronavirus being “more deadly than even your strenuous flus”.
But to the people in public, he compared the virus to the seasonal flu—hypocrisy at its best.
The audio later had him saying that he is trying to play it down and not create panic among people.
He rained wrath down on the journalist who told the world first how Trump was tampering with the effects and seriousness of the virus.
Jon Karl of ABC News asked Trump,
“Why did you lie to the American people?”
Trump said the question itself is a disgrace and called it a terrible question and showed his distaste towards the phraseology.
“I didn’t lie. What I said is we have to be calm, we can’t be panicked.“
The US is right now the country with the highest COVID-19 rate, and it seems to be only increasing. If the President of the state can’t be real with his people, we don’t know who will.
