Roughly the city of Houston. Fourth largest city in the country. Or about 1.5% of the total population. And actually, Italy and Estonia are testing more people per capita than the U.S. Italy has performed far more tests in total than the U.S. Trump's claim is as absurd as his idea that disinfectants might kill the virus in infected people.We have now Tested more than 5 Million People. That is more than any other country in the World, and even more than all major countries combined!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2020
The Do Nothing Democrats are spending much of their money on Fake Ads. I never said that the CoronaVirus is a “Hoax”, I said that the Democrats, and the way they lied about it, are a Hoax. Also, it did start with “one person from China”, and then grew, & will be a “Miracle” end!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2020
Actually what you said is concern about the coronavirus was the Democrat's "new hoax." That was on February 28. I'm not sure how, almost two months later, that's any better or why you would want to call attention to it.
If the Wall Street Journal “Editorial” writers had called, as they should have, they would have easily found that I was “NOT happy with the Georgia Governor on Tuesday night.” You said the opposite, and got it wrong as you often do!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2020
Reported US coronavirus deaths:— Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) April 25, 2020
8 weeks ago: 0 deaths
7 weeks ago: 17 deaths
6 weeks ago: 49 deaths
5 weeks ago: 249 deaths
4 weeks ago: 1,588 deaths
3 weeks ago: 7,152 deaths
2 weeks ago: 18,758 deaths
1 week ago: 37,054 deaths
Right now: 51,017 deaths
Those are the most recent numbers. The number of confirmed deaths in the United States is the highest in the world. It is on track to be 60,000 by the end of April. And yet you have not one word of compassion to offer the mourners, not one word of consolation to offer the aggrieved, not one word of comfort to offer the stricken country.
You haven't even so much as ordered flags to half-mast.
All you care about is what is said about you. Frank Bruni got it right: you regard even a mountain of corpses as a stage.
