Bob Woodward Book Reveals Trump Downplayed Coronavirus Threat
Lordy, there are tapes!
Bob Woodward, the co-author of the legendary book “All The President’s Men”, among others, has revealed he has tapes of his interviews with Donald Trump that clearly state he was deliberately downplaying the threat of the coronavirus pandemic. Trump willingly sat for the questions from Woodward, possibly believing it was going to be a glowing biography. And true to form, once Trump starts talking, he gets himself into deeper trouble.
“Rage” will be released on September 15th, which is coincidentally the deadline for Trump to submit his DNA in the rape case brought against him by writer E. Jean Carroll. Like other books written about him during his term, Trump is calling Woodward’s “fake” despite Woodward sharing some of the tapes with CNN.

Nearly 200k Americans are dead. 400k could be dead by the end of the year.
This all could have been prevented, but #TrumpKnew and he did nothing.

While the book drops plenty of other interesting facts (former Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats was concerned about Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin; former Defense Secretary James Mattis is quoted as calling Trump “dangerous” and “unfit” to be commander in chief), the timeline of Woodward’s interviews lead to another line of questioning: why didn’t Woodward tell anyone what he had learned sooner?
My only problem with this is that Bob Woodward didn't release the tapes on the days he recorded them, because how many lives could've been saved if all of America knew Trump was actively trying to kill them? #TrumpKillsAmerica https://t.co/6gwnH0iHrh
