President Trump told Bob Woodward during his interview sessions that he wanted to always play it down the COVID virus, and he still plays it down, “because I don’t want to create a panic.” This drove Democrats and the liberal media to accuse President Trump of lying to America about the seriousness of the pandemic. However with the words “playing it down,” Trump meant that he wasn’t going to panic, or spread panic. In fact, unless is a member of the liberal media or a leftist Democrat, any reasonable observer looking the actions and words of Trump and his administration knew how serious they took the pandemic, and should have gotten the message that Americans should be taking the virus very seriously also.
Take a look at the COVID-19 timeline below. It runs from Dec. 31, when China announced the discovery of CoronaVirus, through April 13, when President Trump told Woodward the virus was easily transferrable.
Looking at the timeline, you will see that while the President didn’t want America to panic, he always displayed the seriousness of the pandemic in words and action. You will also see that at the same time, Joe Biden and his people were publicly downplaying COVID-19.
The black text below represents an action or announcement by Pres. Trump or part of his administration, indicating the seriousness of Covid-19 (this does not represent all their actions or statements). The brown text describes actions/statements by Democrats, WHO, and Woodward’s question answers. T
