Trump undermines health experts and calls coronavirus death rate 'false'

By Emily Singer -March 5, 2020 9:53 AM

Trump spread harmful misinformation about the coronavirus on Sean Hannity's show Wednesday night.

Donald Trump on Wednesday night ignored or dismissed facts about the coronavirus, and cast doubt on the global death rate of people suffering from the virus provided by health experts.

In an interview with his friend and Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump said the 3.4% death rate the World Health Organization has calculated is "really a false number" a claim he made based not on facts but his own "hunch."

"We have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by sitting around, even going to work. Some of them go to work, but they get better," Trump told Hannity.

"And then when you do have a death like you had in the state of Washington, like you had in the state of California, I believe you had one in New York, all of a sudden it seems like 3 or 4%, which seems like a very high number, as opposed to a fraction of 1%."

1. He doesn't know how to comfort people?

He knows how to lie and how to talk to fox viewers that is it.

3. Ask yourselves honestly...

Would you buy a used car from Trump, or let him babysit your daughter?

6. Karma would require

His sick staff to come to work and snot all over his papers. What justice if he became one of the 1%.
