Trump offers competing coronavirus messages, warns of death, but complains of the ban

-

WASHINGTON – President Trump seemed frustrated that the country would not emerge from its coronavirus lock in the near future, despite the fact that he and other officials warned of an increasing death toll and continued restrictive measures for weeks and maybe months.

“There will be death,” Trump warned flatly at one point during the White House Coronavirus Task Force meeting on Saturday. More than 8,000 people in the United States have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. And even if most of the country is closed, the death toll will continue to increase, reflecting the delay between the time of infection and the onset of the disease.

Trump’s competing imperatives were a bit confusing message on Saturday night. The confusion was confused by impeachment questions that ended just two months ago, but despite what has happened since then, could just as easily be a decade in the past.

These questions were triggered by the fact that Trump released Michael Atkinson, Inspector General of the Intelligence Community on Friday evening, whose handling of a whistleblower complaint started the whole process in September.

Atkinson was classified as “total shame” by the president, accused by the House of Representatives but cleared by the Senate. Some of his most determined democratic opponents are already demanding an investigation into his coronavirus response.

Trump had previously said he wanted the country to return to work by Easter, which will take place on April 12. In the past few days he has made this optimistic forecast after consulting Dr. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx, the best doctors in his task force.

On Saturday there was renewed impatience to return to normal. “We have to work again. We have to open our country again,” said the President, a day after the unemployment rate had rocketed, he wondered if another global economic crisis was imminent.

Trump was mostly sober on Sunday. “We are coming at a time that will be very terrible, probably at a time that we have never seen in this country before,” he said once and added a few moments later, “it will be a really bad time.” Numbers. “

At the same time, he repeated a preferred refrain from some conservatives, who said that the “cure” for the coronavirus – that is, a nationwide shutdown – couldn’t be worse than the disease itself. At the Saturday meeting, he suggested that some churches open for Easter could, albeit with “great separation outside”. He said it was “something we should talk about”.

For the time being, the cure must stay in place, a fact that Trump doesn’t deny, even if he’s irritated about it. “The next two weeks are extremely important,” said Dr. Birx. “This is the moment to do everything you can do according to the President’s guidelines,” she continued, preparing the Americans for continued isolation.

“This is the moment not to go to a grocery store,” she said, “not to go to the pharmacy, but to do everything possible to protect your family.” And that means that everyone does the six feet distance and washes their hands. “
