President Trump knew the truth and lied to Americans about the severity of COVID-19.  How could he risk the very lives of his supporters with rallies where people were encouraged not to social distance and not wear a mask?

Trump admitted to Woodward he downplayed coronavirus threat in early days of outbreak

President Trump admitted to journalist Bob Woodward in March that he publicly downplayed the dangers of the coronavirus as it silently spread around the world, hoping to avoid a panic even as he recognized how "deadly" the virus could be.

I was with a patient and saw Fox News defend him.  They said Democrats called his early action "racist" when he banned flights from China and downplayed it themselves.  They said had he sounded the alarm loudly the mainstream media (of which apparently they are not a part of) would have been against him and hysterical causing widespread panic.  

Bottom line is Trump supporters are undeterred in their support of him no matter what he does or says. 

CNN covered the story endlessly today.  

Fox's main headline over at their website is about Biden and whether or not he used a teleprompter to answer questions.

The President is denying he mislead the public. Again he can just make  up his truth in spite of recordings. and evidence to the contrary and people believe him.
