Trump Reveals Why He Decided to Speak With Bob Woodward

President Donald Trump revealed why he decided to speak with investigative journalist Bob Woodward at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.

During a phone interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday evening, Trump offered an explanation for the conversations he had with Woodward as he suggested his decision was made on a whim.

“I figured, you know, ‘Let’s give it a little shot, I’ll speak to him.’ It wasn’t a big deal,” Trump said.

He continued, “I don’t know if the book is good or bad, I have no idea. I probably, almost definitely won’t read it because I don’t have time to read it. But I gave it a little bit of a shot, sounds like it’s not going to be good.”

Trump also insisted Woodward’s book is “a political hit job” despite Woodward conducting nine hours worth of interviews with the president for the piece.

Trump’s interview with Hannity came amid a media firestorm on Wednesday following the release of comments made by Trump during interviews he had with Woodward.

In an audio clip, Trump can be heard admitting to multiple details that confirmed how deadly the coronavirus really is. He also admitted that he prefers to play down the severity of the coronavirus in an effort to quell the panic.

“To be honest with you, I wanted to always play it down,” Trump told Woodward during a March 19 interview. “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

The president also confirmed that he was aware of the distinct difference between COVID-19 and the seasonal flu and the fact that younger people were also likely to contract the virus.

“Now it’s turning out it’s not just old people, Bob. But just today, and yesterday, some startling facts came out. It’s not just old, older,” Trump said.

Although the World Health Organization (WHO) did not publicly release its study that included airborne transmission until July, Trump made it clear that he was made aware of airborne transmission back in February.

As of Thursday morning, there are more than 6.5 million confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States as the death toll is over 195,000 and there are more than 3.8 million reported recoveries from the virus.

  1. “Regarding your 200,000, CDC FACTS are 6% or 12,000!” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    Aha! Now I understand you better. You are one of those crazy Q-anon wackos! Figures…

  2. “There will be a lot more to come which just brings in more to the Silent Majority.” Lying Paul The Emeffer

    You aren’t just an effing liar, you are delusional. You have yet to prove from which fantasy your imaginary voter army is going to appear.

  3. “This was the worst decision he has made.” ed

    No, it isn’t. My bet is that His Majesty’s worst decision will end up being his hatred and jealousy of President Obama and deciding to run.

    “Can’t believe he thought he could say anything to this WAPO lefty that would not be turned against him.” ed

    What is so hard to believe? He is one of the dumbest people on the planet. He doesn’t plan anything. He doesn’t trust other people. He is an infallible narcissist who can do no wrong – a Teflon Don. What could possibly go wrong, wright?

    “I hope he survives this.” ed

    WHY? 200,000 Americans are DEAD because of him! What is WRONG with you?

  4. Ed just the Dem flavor of the day. There will be a lot more to come which just brings in more to the Silent Majority.

  5. This was the worst decision he has made. Can’t believe he thought he could say anything to this WAPO lefty that would not be turned against him. I hope he survives this.

  6. “A sane voter wants a politician that will tell them what they NEED to know, not what they want to hear.” Phyllis

    Therefore King Donald The Loser didn’t get elected in 2016?

  7. General, in order to elect BETTER politicians, the country needs a SANER electorate. A sane voter wants a politician that will tell them what they NEED to know, not what they want to hear. This is an issue on the far-left and far-right.

  8. “I figured, you know, ‘Let’s give it a little shot, I’ll speak to him.’ It wasn’t a big deal.”

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

    This is what you get when you elect an incompetent buffoon into the Oval Office. No plans, no foresight, no sense of curiousity or sense of importance other than for himself.

    There is no hiding from nearly 200,000 dead Americans on American soil under His Majesty’s incompetent watch. He did this.

    We MUST elect better politicians.
