Infections rose over 100,000% after Trump said they'd be 'close to zero' soon

By Dan Desai Martin -March 26, 2020 12:37 PM

On Feb. 26, Donald Trump told Americans that the number of coronavirus infections would soon be zero. A month later, there are at least 68,534 cases.

On Feb. 26, Donald Trump said there were only 15 confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States, and he predicted the number would soon be zero.

"Because of all we've done, the risk to the American people remains very low," Trump said. "When you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That's a pretty good job we've done."

At the time, Trump was mistaken about the number of U.S. cases. There were 60 confirmed cases, not 15.

And despite his promises, since that day, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases has increased by 114,123%. (The number of cases has increased by 456,793% from the 15 confirmed cases Trump claimed there were.)


Maybe the orange hair fatnixon and the GOP fascist libertarian governors can get all stand behind him and listen to his rant about it being a hoax, like the latest governor in Missouri ..................saying it will hurt the rural folks in his state...............
