Donald Trump said he always took the ‘Chinese virus’ seriously – only 4 replies you need
That noise you can hear is the sound of so-called president Donald Trump furiously back-pedalling as he tries to save face over his tragically lacklustre response to coronavirus (or ‘Chinese virus’ as he likes to call it).
Here he is, on Twitter, obviously.
I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the “borders” from China – against the wishes of almost all. Many lives were saved. The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false!

Today, @realdonaldtrump said: “I’ve always known this is a pandemic. I’ve felt that it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic … I’ve always viewed it as serious.”
