Trump's biggest lie. "It is all a hoax"..If Trump knew, , he should have said nothing

Original Post has been corrected.

...But no, he defended that lie forever.. If Trump "knew" and others have said he knew...see posts further down-(posts 3,4, & 5) , he might not have defended that lie. If somehow Trump had "apologized" for that mistake, and a month or so later warned us all, over and over, about how dangerous the virus was/is,then tens of thousands of lives could have been saved. But Trump doesn't do that and only cares about himself..

And that is who is and will always be. Trump has not seen the end, there is a whole lot left in this show. Michael Cohen has seen much of the show and he said that Trump only cares about himself. And Trump will go down in flames just like the Chicago Fire in October 1871..and Trump & his gang haven't got a clue..

1. I honestly think Trump knew the facts. He admitted as much in the Woodward interview.

He just thought it is better for him (in the PR sense) to minimize the impact of COVID. And he thought it would be contained somehow. And once he chose the ignore COVID stance, his ego couldn't let him change course. Also, he enjoyed that the republicans so eagerly followed every word that he said. He liked the power he has over the republican (and still do).

2. Well, as with everything else, it's all about him.

He denied the seriousness not cause he believed it wasn’t real… he denied Covid was dangerous cause he was terrified it would hurt his poll numbers.

3. Agree completely. Very early on, when nothing was known, downplaying

it a bit might have made some sense. But, quickly that “hoax” BS needed to stop.

CV19 really was his Waterloo. If he did a half-assed job, he might still be Prez. Guess ridding ourselves of trump was one of few CV19 positives.

4. He knew!

Trump Admits Downplaying the Virus Knowing It Was ‘Deadly Stuff’

President Trump acknowledged to the journalist Bob Woodward that he knowingly played down the coronavirus earlier this year even though he was aware it was life-threatening and vastly more serious than the seasonal flu.

“This is deadly stuff,” Mr. Trump said on Feb. 7 in one of 18 interviews with Mr. Woodward for his coming book, “Rage.”

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,”the president told Mr. Woodward in audio recordings made available on The Washington Post website. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flus.”

But three days after those remarks, Mr. Trump told the Fox Business anchor Trish Regan: “We’re in very good shape. We have 11 cases. And most of them are getting better very rapidly. I think they will all be better.” A little less than two weeks later, he told reporters on the South Lawn that “we have it very much under control in this country.”

He lied and we are close to a million dead.

5. I was wrong, Trump knew, but he did not tell the U.S.A. That is much worse...Sorry for mistake

I was wrong in original post...Yes I was wrong .

..I have made changes, sorry...........

Trump knew and didn't warn the country. That was his job, to protect the country from disaster if
possible, and that was possible.. He failed to do his job, and he will be remembered for it.

7. He failed and nearly a million dead.

A nation mourning. We are forever changed because of him. We lost love ones, we lost our most important connection with friends and family, that is touching and holding those you love.

8. Yup

I think it was initially about not panicking the markets because he wanted to use the economy for his re-election bid. But the problem is he pretty much did jack shit to stop it and it all went downhill from there.

10. I agree in part, TRN.

However he was not about protecting us or our pockets. He was in self protect mode to save himself. He never gave a shit about Americans. And then decided along with Jared how to make a profit. He stole our needed PPE and sold it to the highest bidders.

This is a sketch, yet HIS WORDS! He lied.

6. It's a classic gaslighting ploy

He was the President (much as it galls me to say it) and he was/is from their party. They didn't want the black eye of calling him out as an incompetent and a liar -- they had allowed him to be their candidate and voted for him, after all -- and so when he lied, they had to support the lie or maybe face each and every questionable thing they'd done to support him. With every lie he told, they had to support him in it or face their own accumulated malfeasance, thus adding even more to their own tally and becoming ever more chained to him.
