With More Than 200k Americans Dead Of COVID-19, Trump Says He Wouldn’t Take A Do-Over

What would the President of the United States of America change about the pandemic that has already killed over 200k Americans, left some unknown number with life-altering long-term effects, and put millions out of work? “Not much,” he says.

“China should have stopped it,” Trump said, pointing the finger of blame when Eric Bolling asked him what he’d do differently, if he could have one do-over on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump, who admitted to Bob Woodward at the beginning of the pandemic that the virus was very serious and that he was downplaying it to the public, was in an interview with Bolling shortly after walking out of another interview with 60 Minutes‘ Lesley Stahl.

Trump’s handling of COVID-19 has included — in conjunction with that admitted downplaying — a rally in Tulsa that was closely followed by the death of Herman Cain, who attended; Trump’s own infection and hospitalization with the virus, and, as mentioned, over 200k deaths among the American people.

Though Trump, who had access to experimental treatments, quickly rebounded from the virus, Melania is still suffering a lingering cough that, according to USA Today, has taken her off the campaign trail, over two weeks after her husband left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

At least 44 people who survived the 9/11 attacks in 2001 have died after contracting COVID-19.

Health organizations and home product corporations have had to warn Americans not to ingest bleach and other cleaning fluids after Donald Trump’s comments during a pandemic update.

What would Donald Trump change? According to his own words, not much.
