Trump: Many positive coronavirus cases shouldn't even be cases because young people heal in a day

With coronavirus cases rising across the country and the U.S. death toll topping 137,000, President Trump on Sunday dismissed concerns about the spike in infections, telling Fox News that “many of those cases shouldn’t even be cases.”

“Many of those cases are young people that would heal in a day,” the president told Fox News host Chris Wallace in an interview. “They have the sniffles and we put it down as a test.”

While young people make up an increasing share of new cases, the virus has affected people in all age groups. A surge of infections is driving deaths back up again after months of decline, and hospitals in hard-hit states such as Florida, Texas and Arizona are facing an influx of patients that health officials say could soon overwhelm medical systems. Nationwide, hospitalizations were on track to exceed their previous peak of roughly 60,000, reached in the pandemic’s early months.

21. Yes and Wallace did not

challenge him on the health effects to them or that if not tested how many people they will infect that are compromised and could die. I am getting sick to death of these interviewers that do not set it straight.

15. Oh, he gets it alright. And he's happy that the death toll is rising. He spouts BS for a reason.

The real result is more disease and disability and death. For Trump, that's good. You see, we don't think like him. For him, death and disease and disability means more power. He wants more power.

See what he's doing in Portland? He's accumulating power through enlisting the Border Patrol and the DHS for a stint as national police, aka, Gestapo. That's power. He's trying to gain enough power to cancel the election so he won't lose. He's got several pathways to resisting defeat.

The man is an idiot! He's just straight out lying and has no idea what he's talking about.

He doesn't even have the smarts to know when to shutup.

8. Trump says what he wishes and then declares it the truth.

I don't think it is so much that he is such a liar, as a normal liar knows when he or she is lying.... Trump simply does not know the difference in truth and falsehood. It seems that the worse this virus situation gets, the less Trump thinks that it is a problem. His biggest problem is that he is surrounded by people who are afraid to tell him when he is wrong.

That is our stable genius; the most powerful man in the world.......

17. malaise, he is not ignorant. He's crazy and he's evil. He is a very intentional killer.

This fact is so difficult for people to wrap their heads around. It seems so contrary to our more romantic notions about human nature. We ASSUME that Trump is well intentioned, but that his good intentions are stunted by his abject ignorance (and his damaged early life).

I don't think so. I think that he's immersed in hatred, revenge, and doing harm to others- the more the better. He can't be an object of sympathy because he's committed to malevolence. He's not a victim. He's an antagonist. Most of us don't understand this. And while we're trying to figure it out, Trump keeps on killing. And he keeps getting the benefit of the doubt. This gives him more freedom to kill because he knows that most of the nation just doesn't understand him. While they're out to lunch, Trump is depopulating and disabling the nation. Every day, every hour.

Trump is deliberately rigid in his thinking. He can only find a way to act if he's not accountable. Notice that unaccountability is the end result of all of his actions.

Trump doesn't work. He defrays responsibility. He blames anyone and anything for his own failings, while constantly self-dealing.

13. explain to anyone who says this

that we aren't testing people to treat them. The severity of their specific infection is not at question. The point of testing is to identify cases and act to prevent more spread.

Getting a positive test doesn't change your treatment plan from what you would get with a diagnosis from symptoms alone. It just lets you know that you need to quarantine yourself and contacts should be notified and tested.

Pushing this idea that if you are young you don't need to worry about it is borderline manslaughter. Yeah if you are young and generally healthy you are *probably* going to be just fine.....but if you don't know you have it you could spread it to dozens or hundreds of other people and some number of those people are going to have very bad outcomes.

Anyone who actually gets over it that fast probably isn't being tested and isn't even being counted in the number of cases.

symptoms and it's been reported that that early time window is when shedding is begun.

19. Eh... let's remember that Trump ALWAYS LIES.

It doesn't matter to him if people get over the virus in 1 day or 10 weeks. What matters to him is that people get the facts confused with lies. Over and over.

Therefore, they are entitled to no consideration at all. If they're a "winner' they get well within a day and don't bitch about being sick.
