Trump: US Won’t Close Over Second CCP Virus Wave

Trump CCP virus covidPresident Donald Trump on Thursday said the United States will not shut down if there is another COVID-19 wave.

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility. It’s standard. And we’re going to put out the fires,” Trump told reporters when he was touring a Ford manufacturing plant in Michigan. He was asked about whether he’s concerned about a second wave of the virus.

But Trump added a caveat, saying that “we’re not going to close the country,” and “we’re going to put out the fires.”

Trump expressed confidence in the United States being able to contain future CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus outbreaks.

“Whether it’s an ember or a flame, we’re going to put it out. But we’re not closing our country,” the president said.

Currently, data shows that more than 90,000 people in the United States have died from the virus so far. Starting in March, a number of governors have imposed strict lockdowns, leading to layoffs and business closures.

Trump made the remarks while touring the Ford plant, which is currently making ventilators in response to the pandemic.

But over the past month or so, all 50 states have started some level of reopening, including New York, the state with the most COVID-19 deaths.

The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits in the two months since the coronavirus took hold in the United States has swelled to nearly 39 million, the government reported Thursday, even as states from coast to coast gradually reopen their economies and let people go back to work. More than 2.4 million people filed for unemployment last week in the latest wave of layoffs from the business shutdowns that have brought the economy to its knees, the Labor Department said.

That brings the running total to a staggering 38.6 million, a job-market collapse unprecedented in its speed.

The number of weekly applications has slowed for seven straight weeks. Yet the figures remain breathtakingly high—10 times higher than normal before the crisis struck.

And the continuing rise shows that even though all states have begun reopening over the past three weeks, employment has yet to snap back and the outbreak is still damaging businesses and destroying jobs.

President Trump has learned a great deal. He will not allow the cure to be worse than the disease. Hopefully, most Americans will start seeing through the sneaky, unpatriotic Democratic leaders.

Trump is correct, it’s just common sense.

Lockdowns don’t stop the spread of this virus anyway! It only postpones who gets it next! The whole lockdown wasn’t about not getting sick but giving hospitals time to prepare for cases when they came. We have done that! The virus also, is NOT a death sentence as it first appeared, for those who are healthy, the virus is an inconvenience, just like any other illness and once you get it and get over it, you can’t get it again it appears! Last, the newest info I have read says that this virus isn’t as contagious as first appeared and… Read more »

Dr. Deep State Fauci is on board with the Democrats agenda to continue to tank the best economy I’ve seen in my lifetime. If there is a second wave it will be localized and contained in those areas. With what we’ve learned Come this first attack of the Wuhan Chinese Virus we are better equipped to handle it! He’s also on in tank with the WHO and China.

Fauci was wrong 99% of the time. So we’re the Bill Gates funded models… We need to listen to every view from open minded common sense experts… Not New World Order supporters.

Trump hopefully will get some “experts” who haven’t spent 40+ years in DC. They are all either inept or corrupt. Get your advice from people in “flyover” country!

If we haven’t learned how to better live with such a virus in the future, we just aren’t going to live. The lessons were hard, but we don’t need to repeat them. I agree with the president wholeheartedly on this one. I also agree this was a CCP attack.

It took about two months two hear him say that. He will never say he panicked because he listened to the Deep State. That would not be the actions of an extremely stable genius, would it? Since we have cases of flu every year, always have and always will, I’m happier to hear he won’t do it again.
