Trump Declares He Will Not ‘Close the Country’ If There Is a Second Wave of Coronavirus

Even if the United States is hit with a second wave of coronavirus, the president is declaring that he will not close the country again.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday at a Ford factory in Michigan while taking a tour of the facility, President Donald Trump said, “People say that’s a very distinct possibility, it’s standard.”

“We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country,” the president added. “We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”

See Trump’s comments below:

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — who also serves on the White House Coronavirus Task Force — recently said that the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. is not completely under control, as IJR reported.

“I think we’re going in the right direction but the right direction does not mean we have by any means total control of this outbreak,” he said.

He also previously suggested that the virus will not completely disappear.

“It’s not gonna disappear from the planet which means as we get into next season, in my mind, it’s inevitable that we will have a return of the virus — or maybe that it never even went away,” Fauci said. “When it does, how we handle it will determine our fate.”

Speaking of “fate,” more recently, Fauci told actress Julia Roberts during an interview on states beginning to reopen their economies, he warned, “Now is not the time to tempt fate and pull back completely.”

Another health expert, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield, said on April 22 it is “going to be more difficult and potentially more complicated because we will have flu and coronavirus circulating at the same time,” in regards to next winter.

As the coronavirus outbreak spread across the U.S. and the country began the shutdown, it took a toll on the economy and caused jobless claims to skyrocket. However, now, all 50 states are beginning to reopen their economies in some form.

The U.S. has 1,621,333 confirmed coronavirus cases and 96,363 deaths due to the virus, as of Friday morning.

  1. The overflowing with shit RECTUM-IN-CHIEF, trumpuke, is an all show no go, loudmouthed little piss pot fond of writing checks his sorry ass can’t cash.

  2. It’s very difficult to know what Trump means, because he usually just says stuff that sounds good and defends him. He backtracks or changes his story within the next ten days, all the time. You can’t believe what he says, because he doesn’t believe it either.

  3. “The company founded by a man named Henry Ford – good bloodlines, good bloodlines if you believe in that stuff. You got good blood,” anti-Semite Dear Leader

    Bloodlines? NOBODY who understands anti-Semitism can listen to a known racist, white supremacist and anti-Semite (Dear Leader), who has used the term “bloodlines” many times, can take it any other way.

    Are you kidding me? Dear Leader is dangerous and has no business being in our White House!

  4. “We are going to put out the fires.” King Donald The Loser

    How is that working out for us, so far, Your Majesty?

    Oh, wait, I can answer that with your own words. ““You have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

    A couple of days. So, in realitity, you aren’t very smart, are you? In fact, with close to 100,000 DEATHS later, you are actually pretty dangerous to our health, dangerous to this nation and our personal survival, aren’t you?

    This must really confuse Cult-45. It has to be gnawing at, at least a few of them, deep, down inside them. No wonder you sank in the polls again after that brief, tiny flit around 50% popularity when you confused them into thinking that you got this. How do you feel about that, Your Royal Highness?

  5. His Majesty seems to forget that states have rights too and their governors can do what is right and smart to protect their citizens. You can forget about that if you live in, say, Florida.

    We MUST elect better politicians.

  6. I’m quite sure that trumpukelicans are inspired to sacrifice their health and well being, safety and security, even their lives to test the bravado of THE RECTUM-IN-CHIEF and MURDERING PSYCHOPATH.
