Here is a timeline of Trump’s comments on coronavirus:

 

Feb. 7 (tweet): ”… as the weather starts to warm & the virus hopefully becomes weaker, and then gone.”

 

Feb. 10: “I think the virus is going to be — it’s going to be fine.”

 

Feb. 14: “We have a very small number of people in the country, right now, with it. It’s like around 12. Many of them are getting better. Some are fully recovered already. So we’re in very good shape.”

 

Feb. 19: “I think it’s going to work out fine. I think when we get into April, in the warmer weather, that has a very negative effect on that and that type of a virus. So let’s see what happens, but I think it’s going to work out fine.”

 

Feb. 24 (tweet): “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. … Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

 

Feb. 25: “You may ask about the coronavirus, which is very well under control in our country. We have very few people with it, and the people that have it are … getting better. They’re all getting better. … As far as what we’re doing with the new virus, I think that we’re doing a great job.”

 

Feb. 26: “Because of all we’ve done, the risk to the American people remains very low. … 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.”

 

Feb. 28: “I think it’s really going well. … We’re prepared for the worst, but we think we’re going to be very fortunate.”

 

Feb. 28: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

 

Feb. 28: “This is their new hoax.”

 

March 4: “Some people will have this at a very light level and won’t even go to a doctor or hospital, and they’ll get better. There are many people like that.”

 

March 9 (tweet): “So last year 37,000 Americans died from the common Flu. It averages between 27,000 and 70,000 per year. Nothing is shut down, life & the economy go on. At this moment there are 546 confirmed cases of CoronaVirus, with 22 deaths. Think about that!”

 

March 10: “And it hit the world. And we’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

 

March 11: “I think we’re going to get through it very well.”

 

March 12: “It’s going to go away. ... The United States, because of what I did and what the administration did with China, we have 32 deaths at this point … when you look at the kind of numbers that you’re seeing coming out of other countries, it’s pretty amazing when you think of it.”

 

March 15: “This is a very contagious virus. It’s incredible. But it’s something that we have tremendous control over.”

 

March 16: “If you’re talking about the virus, no, that’s not under control for any place in the world.”

 

March 17: “I’ve always known this is a, this is a real, this is a pandemic … I’ve felt that it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic.”

Well, he doesn't read, he doesn't actually do anything even as President except get facts wrong, and pretty much relies on everyone around him to get anything done, including wiping his butt...what's the poor guy to do other than sue people.  Cheers!

And if anyone still doesn't understand how delusional these guys in the White House are, now they want to fortify the Canadian border with troops!

 

Does anyone know of one single person who would want to leave Canada for the US at this time? A country with no cohesive policy to defend themselves from the spread of Covid-19? A country with no universal health care?

 

Perhaps it is to keep Americans in?

Let no crisis go to waste:

The Environmental Protection Agency, headed by former coal lobbyist Andrew Wheeler, announced on Thursday a sweeping and indefinite suspension of environmental rules amid the worsening coronavirus pandemic, a move green groups warned gives the fossil fuel industry a "green light to pollute with impunity."

 

Under the new policy (pdf), which the EPA insisted is temporary while providing no timeframe, big polluters will effectively be trusted to regulate themselves and will not be punished for failing to comply with reporting rules and other requirements. The order—applied retroactively beginning March 13, 2020—requests that companies "act responsibly" to avoid violations.

Retroactive?  Is there an unreported dumping or spill from March 13th?

Not sure, and I'm not even sure how I would check to be honest. Doesn't quite pass the smell test, though.
