‘I’m a Cheerleader’: Trump Says He Knew Coronavirus Could be ‘Horrible’ but Wanted to Stay Positive

The United States currently leads the global charts for the number of coronavirus cases recorded around the world, with more than 189,000 infected patients, according to Johns Hopkins University data. These numbers stand in contrast to Donald Trump’s late February promise that there would soon be almost “zero” coronavirus cases in the US.

United States President Donald Trump admitted during the White House press briefing on Tuesday that he “knew” the coronavirus “could be horrible” but did not want “to be a negative person” when asked whether he earlier downplayed the existing coronavirus threat.
