The deadly coronavirus pandemic is sweeping its way across the country, ravaging entire nations, and ruining countless more lives in its wake. No one knows the extent of the damage that will be left when the virus is finally dead, but experts agree that the worst days are yet to come for America.
Donald Trump is finally starting to come around to what experts have been warning him about for the past three months, but now, it’s far too late; so many have already died.
Trump isn’t exactly known for his bedside manner, and he’s downright horrible at comforting people. So when Trump stood in front of the entire nation Saturday and told people to expect many more people to die, it really shook some people.
Trump said this:
“This will be probably the toughest week between this week and next week, and there will be a lot of death, unfortunately, but a lot less death than if this wasn’t done but there will be death.”
This has people questioning why the sudden change of heart? What was Trump shown to make him use these words when just over a week ago, he was trying to re-poen businesses throughout the country against the recommendation of experts?
