Four Key Points About Coronavirus And The Democrats’ Political Games

The president talked about the economic advances African Americans have made under his administration, about the government's response to the global coronavirus threat and how dishonest he thinks the news media can be to him.

On Wednesday, President Trump held a press conference regarding the federal government’s response to coronavirus. The presser followed a series of ill-advised missives from Trump on the subject, from a tweet lamenting media coverage of “caronavirus” to stating that the United States was “very close to a vaccine,” despite the fact that such a vaccine will not be ready for a year, in all likelihood.

During the press conference, Trump downplayed the coronavirus threat, suggesting that the risk to the United States remains “low,” adding that a vaccine was “coming along very well.” He stated, “We’re ready to adapt, and we’re ready to do whatever we have to do.” He appointed Vice President Mike Pence to lead a task force on the issue, and tore into Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, whom he termed “incompetent.” Trump also talked up the Chinese response to the virus, stating that the government of China was “very talented,” as well as “very tough and very smart.”
