Coronavirus: Trump warns of ‘painful two weeks’ as officials predict up to 240,000 US deaths


I want every American to be prepared
for the hard days that lie ahead. We’re gonna go through a very
tough two weeks, but this is going to be a very painful,
very, very painful two weeks. Dr Fauci, dhould Americans be prepared
for the likelihood that there will be 100,000 Americans who die from
this virus? The answer is yes.
As sobering a number as that is, we should be prepared for it. It’s 100,000 to 200,000,
which a lot of people, right? A lot of people. The question is what would have
happened if we did nothing? Because there was a group that
said, let’s just ride it out. Let’s ride it out. What would have happened? And that number comes in at 1.5 to
1.6 million people, up to 2.2 and even beyond. So that’s 2.2 million people would
have died if we did nothing. We just carried on our life. This may be an uncomfortable question,
but what would the models have looked like that Dr. Brooks and
Dr Fauci showed, if we started these social distancing
guidelines sooner, in February or January, if there was no virus in the background,
there was nothing to mitigate. If there was virus there that we
didn’t know about, then the answer to your question is
probably yes. Now, the only trouble with that is that
whenever you come out and say something like that, it always
becomes almost a soundbite that gets taken out of context. But we were watching South Korea,
excuse me, and China and Italy, and we weren’t taking action when
those countries were fighting. In a perfect world, it would have been
nice to know what was going on there. Is there any fairness to the criticism
that you may have lulled Americans into a false sense of security
when you were saying things like ‘it’s going to go away? ‘That sort of thing? But, Jim, it’s going away.
It’s going to go away. Hopefully, at the end of the month
and if not, hopefully it will be soon after that. I want to be positive.
I don’t want to be negative. I’m a positive person. ‘Somebody said, ‘oh, I wish he’d be
more negative.’ They literally have … that’s in one of the
wonderful newspapers today. I wish he’d be more negative. Well, this is really easy to be negative about.
But I want to give people hope, too. You know, I’m a cheerleader for the country. We’re going through the worst thing
that the country’s probably ever seen. Don’t forget, at that time, people didn’t
know that much about it. Even the experts, we were talking
about it. We didn’t know where it was going. We saw China, but that was it.
Maybe it would have stopped China. We wish we could have killed it in China,
but it didn’t happen. It started spreading to Europe. It started spreading here.
It started spreading all over. But … and I’m not blaming anybody.

  1. Trump is not the best president after all but atleast he is unique president(unique in manyway and manything)

  2. If Americans did not know CoVID-19 was contagious and harmful despite whatever anyone is blaming Trump for saying/not saying, then they are ignorant. I am so sick of hearing reporters blaming and second guessing Trump (and other politicians) for their actions and/or inaction when people have known there is a dangerous infection spreading and that they should be doing the right thing as individuals. There is clearly no right way yet to know how to deal with this as a nation (each nation has a different approach).

  3. What?????? I thought you had it all under control, not to worry about it. It's only a flu. Trump you have lied to the American people yet again.

  4. Sure he said he's gonna open up the country next week… He's thick as pigshit y did Americans vote this reality TV star as president lol u ppl deserve hm

  5. stable genius is a positive guy …..hope the americans will know what to do in november ….if there is an election

  6. This is a punishment from the Lord to the criminal countries like America and Europe, because they committed crimes and wars, and they killed many innocent people overseas.

  7. I see trump has finally woke up. Shame it took him like 6 weeks. Perhaps they should introduce him to the internet.

  8. This guy is the Dumbest famous person i've ever known, His re-election was handed to him in a Silver platter, all he had to do was shut his dog like mouth and say i'am no expert in Medicine i'll follow what the health experts say, all his stupidity over the course of presidency would've been disappeared!

  9. yes but he just want to get 4 more years he don,t care how many Americans are killed by the Coronavirus all he wants is another 4 years in the White House so lets all hope that Donald Trump comes down with the Coronavirus I would call it Justice,

  10. I´m trying to be positiv. The virus will disappear. So go out and hug each other. Have fun. Go to the church!

  11. Considering that the tests are not able to tell if a patient has the SARS-2 virus, but only reveals the presence of 'coronavirus' (which anyone who has had a cold during their life will have in their body) I am beginning to have some serious doubts regarding how genuine the numbers are. It also appears that the common Flu is not affecting anyone this year. And why are the deaths of stage-4 cancer patients, who are dying of cancer, being marked down as dying from SARS-2, after testing +ve for coronavirus during their final hours. See above for more information!

  12. so this no face mask thing backfired? south korea and taiwan wear mask. western countries are against face mask

  13. Mr. President, I don't need you to make me more positive, I need the truth and your fast actions to contain the spread.

  14. Ask Pelosi why she didn’t voice her concerns earlier. Or was she busily ignorant or uninformed. The country is facing a disaster, the blame game by media is disguising.

  15. I’m so glad to me American and have the smartest guy in history to be our beloved president. He protected us all from the China virus since day 1. We were the first in the world to suggest the quarantine from the China virus, and all the other countries were laughing at us, comparing the China virus to common Flue !! We are safe in America thanks to Trump and we will be the least affected country as our president said.

    Ah no wait…

  16. Nothing more than a flu and flu season is over. They will take every hospital death and say it was the China virus

  17. if you want guaranteed caaash working from home then this site is for you, search in Google excluding gaps E a s y L a p t o p L i f e .c o m

  18. I Knew Dumb Dumb Thought That Coronavirus Was Going To Stay in China Only ?‍♀️ That's Lying Trump Way of Staying Positive When He Knew Back In January And Didn't Even Say Anything, No Warning Are Nothing ! Trump Has Put Us All in Harm's Way ! By Disbanded CDC ! To Save Money Because He Didn't Think CDC Would Be Needed ! And Yet Corrupt Lying Trump Gave Our Supplies To China Back In January ! What About America First Trump ! ?

  19. CNN – WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO QUIT CRITICIZING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND START WORKING TOWARD SAYING MORE POSITIVE THINGS TO ENCOURAGE THE PEOPLE OF THE U.S.? THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICS, THIS IS ABOUT LIVES. GET ON BOARD AND START HELPING BUT BEING ENCOURAGING INSTEAD OF HURTING BY BEING NEGATIVE!!!

  20. THIS SAME COMMENT GOES TO ALL OF YOU, BELOW, WHO WROTE YOUR OWN NEGATIVE COMMENTS. IF WE DON'T ALL PULL TOGETHER, THIS WILL RIP US APART AS INDIVIDUALS AND AS A NATION. WE NEED EACH OTHER AT A TIME LIKE THIS AND TO NOT BE 'BACK-BITING' EACH OTHER. NEGATIVITY WILL ONLY BRING MORE PEOPLE DOWN AND LEAD TO MORE DEPRESSION AND SUICIDES DURING THIS CRISIS, AND IF YOU KEEP TALKING THE WAY YOU ARE, YOU ARE CONTRIBUTING TOWARD IT.

  21. Trump leave the stage!! Your not helping the situation. Your disappointing so far! And you should stop waffling!

  22. STOP WASTING YOUR ENERGY ON BLAME AND CRITICALNESS! INSTEAD, PITCH IN THERE AND HELP BY SENDING MONEY, GIVING BLOOD, PRAYING, PRAYING FOR WISDOM THE PRESIDENT OF OUR NATION, ETC. AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT HE HAS DONE THEN YOU HAVE THE FOLLOWING OPTIONS: 1) PRAY FOR WISDOM FOR HIM, 2) VOTE DURING THE NEXT ELECTION, 3) RUN FOR PRESIDENT YOURSELF AND SHOW US HOW YOU CAN DO A MUCH BETTER JOB 4) KEEP YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO YOURSELF AND STOP WASTING ENERGY 4) WHEN THIS IS OVER, GET OUT THERE IN THIS WORLD AND MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE BY HELPING THE SURVIVORS OF THIS CRISIS. I PRAY YOU LEARN SOMETHING FROM ALL OF THIS AND DON'T CONTINUE IN YOUR NEGATIVE WAYS.

  23. NO WONDER, LONELY PERSONS WHO ARE AT HOME READING ALL THIS GARBAGE BECOME DEPRESSED, MORE DEPRESSED, AND/OR CONSIDER OR COMMIT SUICIDE. WHAT HOPE ARE YOU GIVING THE WORLD WITH YOUR NEGATIVITY???? I PRAY THAT YOU SERIOUSLY THINK ABOUT THIS AND CONSIDER BECOMING A BETTER PERSON!!!

  24. Took me 3 hours to get through this footage…it beggars belief that this person has been entrusted with any 'office' – he's a showman, a conman, and a liar, and he actually believes he's getting away with it…..American voters, its down to you…get him out and elect someone who gives a damn and consign this egomaniac to history.

  25. This will not be over in two weeks. It will not be over in 2 months. Had Trump been honest from the start, America wouldn't be now considered the Covid-19 epicentre.

  26. Who r leading the program against the virus? The governors. These people are not really doing anything other than arguing with exactly same reporters with exactly same questions every single day. No need to air this breifing.

  27. There is a Siddha Medicine doctor from Tamil Nadu, India who claims can cure Corona Virus, appealed to India PM without any feedback.
    This guy even claims to let him treat the patients even without PPE. You can use your resources to check. He has published numerous videos in YouTube in Tamil Language. I am you will have some Tamil people to try.

  28. that's strange in lithuania there are about 600 cases and the politicians when speaking in the press they allways wear facemasks, but in US it isn't the case

  29. 0:32 You were part – no the leader – of that "group" that said "do nothing, ride it out, ride it out". Goddamn it!!

  30. Destruya esos laboratorios genocidas ..nuestra raza humana al natural debemos conservar. ..no insulten como dios nos creo a su semejanza .Dios existe Es Ser Vivo….como van a bajar población mundial cada que gastan nuestra plata en corrupciones y deuda externa. ..que gobierne los pobres entonces si ud ricos nomas nos atacan

  31. There was a group who said lets just ride it out? YOU WERE THAT GROUP…..SAYING THE cure should not be worse than the disease.

  32. what about being truthful, honest and realistic instead of "positive" or "negativ"?
    i feel sorry for every US citizen who has to live and maybe die under this president, no matter if he voted for him or not

  33. being encouraging is different to just being positive.
    the virus is spreading in america and he is just simply "being positive". That is enough?
    I'm just glad I'm not american and not even mentioning voting him as president coz that is just stupid.

  34. So over Conrona now dying of ennui … so Bill Gates wants money for a new chip: will someone give him some money and lets all get on with our lives please.

  35. So the new vaccine/antidote will include a chip Bill Gates has invented: that will be your passport too! I got it now! ? welcome to Dystopia!

  36. Trump's mental state is a shadow of America's mental state.. frightening! The virus isn't our biggest threat, never has been. Very painful to endure his presidency.

  37. We don’t need positivity we need the truth . You are the President it’s your job to answer questions, it is not going away by the end of the month that is an out and out LIE . None of the doctors or scientists have told him that because it is just not true . None of the modelling done tracking this is predicting this will be over in a month . So he is actually making that up

  38. optimal protocol in epidemics. When an epidemic occurs somewhere, the towns and neighborhoods of the rest of the world are almost 100 percent clean of the virus, however, people are confined to their homes rather than confined within the town or neighborhood, with the consequence of economic unemployment and terrible psychological damage to the population.
    at the moment the vast majority of towns and neighborhoods are clean of the virus. let the tests be done. they do not have to continue with the house confinement.
    stop to globalist political terrorism

  39. I'm not usually in favour of transplanting leadership during a crisis, but come on, it's really time now. Can't someone declare him medically (mentally) unwell or something? For all it's faults, the US deserves, and needs, so much better.

  40. Pls ask people to drink hot water with tumeric and paper ,this will kill the virus .This is what people in China are doing to control the virus .

  41. 0:34 "What would have happened if we did nothing, cause they were a group that's said lets' said just ride it out" Hmm yes you said that!

  42. It’s fun hearing Americans arguing in the comment section, whereas here in Australia, if you are seen in a gathering of more than 2 people you get a fine of $3000. Stay safe guys.

  43. The man does not know if he is coming or going, most powerful military country in the world done by a microscopic virus which they can’t bomb, frankly US could do with him just going.

  44. ALERT! Ppl with low cholosterol levels are hit harder by covid-19. Statins should NOT be used, it's madness!

  45. Xi jong pingbis responsible of this chinese experimental virus leaked in huwan virology lab. Xi should pay the world.

  46. If you don't mind, I would like to share some tips to do protections:

    we really have no way and feel anxious day by day but we have to stay at home for more than 2 months to fight with the corona virus.
    Just in case, if there is anyone got infected in your city or neighour area,  it's better not to go with crowded people.
    If you have to go, please wear the face mask and eyes-protector, especially there are crowded people in elevator or in not-so-ventilated small space.
    It would be helpful to use a piece of tissue to insulate your hands if you need to touch the door handles or elevator buttons.
    If you have to meet or talk with people, it's better to keep a considerably safe distance(let's say at least 8 meters),that would be much safer.
    As the Spring is already warming up, the corona virus might be killed by high temperature when Summer comes.
     
    I believe all people would get through this difficult period.we pray for all the people in the world.
     
    To the most hope, I wish you all the best and kindly please take care.

  47. He really thinks it’s gonna “go away” by the end of the month? “Hopefully”? I’m sorry but just how ignorant could a world leader be
